does he primarily play corner IF? I was wondering if he had Rojas' versatility?

He doesn't have it yet but he has the potential for it.  Right now he can play 1st, 3rd, & 2nd.  IMO he has the tools to learn OF.  They drafted him with plans to turn him into a catcher but that experiment didn't work (his receiving had a long way to go but his bat was ready to move up levels - arm was good though).  He is going to have to show flexibility to get to the show with Houston with the current players that have in the IF. 
Always ready to go to a game.

How did Castellanos look last night? A 21 year old who skipped AA.

He has not really “skipped” AA. He is on his 2nd or 3rd short stint in RR firing a season played st A ball. He will probably spend 3020 at AA.

He'll probably be a bit old for the league.

Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

If he pitches like he did on 8/1, he’ll stay in RR.

No one there you don’t know from ST. Toro has only been up two games. I would watch him if he plays.

Went to Dell Diamond last night for the game against Omaha. With the exception of Mayfield, I don't think there's anybody left in Round Rock who will be useful to the big club this year. Specific observations:


2. Tucker was at 1st base, hopefully showcasing his versatility for a trade. Except that he's pretty awkward over there. And this is probably unfair and a function of my preexisting prejudices, but he just seems to exude a teenager's sense of "It's not fair! i should be in Houston!" Jogging here, shuffling there, just lousy body language. He went 0-4, and on a couple of ground ball outs he didn't even make it half-way to 1st before he was thrown out, just shuffling along like Festus or something. If he can be traded for a real pitcher, I'll be ecstatic.


I didn’t care for Tucker’s body language last year when they called him up. It isn’t just the fact that the kid never cracked a smile. It was more that there seemed to be no sense of urgency in anything he did. He seemed very nonchalant about being in the big leagues. He almost seemed to exude an attitude of I don’t care if I’m here or not.

Hopefully I read him wrong, but that’s the vibe I got thru the tv..

When they call him up in September, I hope he rakes.

If anyone ever learns what the Guduan suspension was all about, I'm all ears.

Another good outing by Castellanos yesterday. 2 innings, 2 walks, no hits, no runs, 1 SO.

Not drugs. My friends says he thinks that cause must be clearly stated in the announcement.

My experience in a minor league town, team rules usually means something that might have got the attention of the police but not charges were filed. Like a fight at a bar or the team hotel.  I would guess if this were the case, it wouldn't have been the first time.

Sounds plausible.

Urquidy didn’t react well to the demotion, giving up 10 ER in 3.2 IP.

Looks like Tucker reacted well to not being traded.  Last 10 games, .325, 5 HRs, 15 RBI
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

I have been told to discount anything they do on western road trips.

Welp, 7 of the 10 games were in RR.....but 4 of the 5 home runs were in Iowa or El Paso
