Astros Minor League Recap

It was a fairly slow day in the minors yesterday with Corpus and Lexington having scheduled days off, but it was rain that made it slow down even more by post-poning Tri-City's game.  Although, there are still some interesting things to talk about.  Dalls Keuchel had another rough start last night and lasted only two innings.  It doesn't help that he's an extreme groundball pitcher and his defense behind him included Chris Johnson, Anderson Hernandez, Ozzie Navarro, and Brett Wallace.  Not exactly a group that will wow you in the field.  The lineup he face also included one of the best first base prospects in Anthony Rizzo

The third overall pick in this years draft, Trevor Bauer, was scheduled to pitch five innings against Lancaster last night, and he only made four innings.  He breezed through the first three innings before running into a lot of trouble in the fourth.  Bauer stacked up eight strikeouts (three called in the first inning), but only three were swinging strikeouts.  You typically look at swinging strikeouts as the better measure because it shows that he's getting them by stuff.  Strikezones in the minors are very erratic and when you see a lot of called strikeouts, you have to wonder how bad the ump was calling it.  I'm not wanting to focus on Bauer here, but focus on the fact that it seems they made him work, at least in the fourth inning.  Once they adjusted to the zone, they seemed to get some hits off of him.  That is the encouraging part, you want to see them make good pitchers work.
