Let's get you caught up on some of the big stories from the weekend! But first, I just want to remind you that Jarred Cosart is set to make his Triple-A debut tonight. I'm pretty nervous about this one as he hasn't exactly pitched lights out in Corpus so far. So, cross your fingers and hopes that Burt Hooten is going to work his magic.

First off, Nicholas Tropeano is a good pitcher. I mean he makes good pitchers look...not so good. He bounced back from two poor performances in his last two starts, to completely dominate Saturday night. You can read the stat line after the jump, but it's his overall numbers that are the most impressive. He currently ranks third in the Sally League in strikeouts (43) and inning pitched (33 2/3) and sixth in ERA (1.87). He's also only walked ten batters, a 4.3:1 K:BB ratio is quite nice.

I thought Trope would be the man to replace Wes Musick in Lancaster since he was promoted to Corpus to fill Cosart's spot, but Tyson Perez was promoted from EST for that spot. You can read about his debut and what he's been working on here.

The last big thing I want to point out is that I can give you a reason to watch ESPN today. I know that ESPN isn't popular around these parts (and for good reason). The sports network doesn't give the Astros much credit, but they did today for the Astros minor leagues. This video made #2 on top plays for last week and put Austin Wates phenomenal catch on national TV. It was quite an impressive catch to say the least.
