  1. Cingrani had 111 pitches in 5 innings. Of course I don’t know why he had a high pitch count with 5 walks. Anyone see the game?

    • @HOF-13: I didn’t see it. I’m guessing that he’s been instructed to throw more offspeed pitches, and those are probably missing the strike zone more often. But I haven’t seen any information regarding which pitches he is throwing how often.

  2. Cingrani, Rogers, & Cisco’s turns have all fallen on the same night two starts in a row. These are guys pitching great seasons who may all be full-timers with the big club one day.

  3. Hamilton was 1-3 with a SF and a SB. He’s showing signs of coming around at the plate, which is very encouraging. Does anyone know how he’s been doing defensively?

  4. Last week it was shared that he is getting to everything in center field, that he has excelled defensively.

    With the AA year he had last year, and him meeting and exceeding at AAA, his clock will begin with the big club this year.

    We have seen many guys (Adam Dunn) make the jump from AA to the bigs. I think that Hamilton being able to be challenged at AAA this year only helps his readiness.

  5. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of “Loek Van Mil pitched x innings of scoreless relief”. Seems at the beginning of the year it was about getting him to have a consistent delivery. If they have, he is exciting.

    Also, look who has the best ERA and WHIP stats with the Dragons. Not Drew Cisco, or Robert Stephenson, or Sal Romano. It’s the 5′ 11″, 19 year old, Venezuelan, Alejandro Chacin.

    Speaking of Drew Cisco, he’s walked 6 batters this year will striking out 55. Those are Chapmanesk numbers.
