Here's what happened this weekend. The GCL and DSL teams wrapped up their seasons and neither made the playoffs. The DSL team was just absolutely horrible this year. After all of the minor league seasons are up, we'll get a lot of content out on all of the teams, so don't think I'm just blowing off the seasons for now. There's a plan to recap each affiliates season in a very in-depth way.

The Greeneville Astros have a few games still remaining but were mathematically eliminated last night with a loss. But, it's their best season since 2004 when they won 41 games and was their first year in Greeneville. Lance McCullers had a start over the weekend, but it didn't go so well. You can head to the minor league game thread fanpost to find an interesting tweet about it.

Lancaster is rolling and have built a two game lead for the wild-card spot, so they are looking like they will be in the playoffs and we will have three minor league teams hunting for hardware. So, keep looking for how the Hooks, JetHawks, and the ValleyCats are doing as they close out their seasons, cause at least one, will be playing more baseball.

As for highlighting a player from last night's games, I have call-out Asher Wojciechowski. Great start! He posted a game score of 70 and only allowed two hits. He has seen a lot of peripherals decline since the trade, but his overall numbers still look good. His advance stats (FIP, SIERA) don't like what he's done as much as what he did pre-trade, because of a lower K%, higher BB%, and a much lower BABIP. That can be a cause of concern, but lets remember that it's a big change for a guy to move organizations and work with new catcher, defense, and coaching staff. Another factor is that he moved leagues as well. He went from a High-A Florida State League to the AA Texas League. So, for him to still have success while having that transition in a step up in level, but a change from a very pitcher friendly league to a neutral league, is quite impressive.
