While Matt Grabusky was building a case for Kris Bryant as first overall pick over at Big League Futures, Bryant himself was busy feasting on a couple of freshman Portland pitchers this weekend. In the second inning of Friday's game, Bryant homered as part of a 6-run inning that chased Portland's starter, freshman righty Billy Sahlinger, from the game.

Then, on Sunday, Bryant again teed off, launching a shot in the fourth inning off of Portland's second pitcher of the day, Adam Wozniak, a freshman who's thrown a total of 6 innings in his college career. Later in the same game, Bryant took another freshman, Jackson Lockwood, deep. Lockwood had pitched 20 innings prior to being fed to the lions in this game.

Speaking of freshmen... or, that is, almost-freshmen, the Perfect Game National Pre-Draft Showcase was today, and though I'm still compiling notes, you can watch a feed of the game by clicking here and a feed of the workout by clicking here.. This is a rare chance to watch some of the nation's top prep prospects play, and iHigh and Perfect Game should both be commended. I don't know how long the feed will be up, so take advantage while you can.

Down in Oklahoma, Jason Hursh and Jonathan Gray were scheduled to go head-to-head on Friday night, but Gray was a late scratch and ended up pitching on Saturday. Hursh, meanwhile, battled on Friday night, throwing a 134-pitch complete game.

Mark Appel struggled through his worst outing of the year. Sean Manaea had arguably his best, sitting down the first 10 batters he faced and striking out 11 over 7 innings. Ryne Stanek, another preseason favorite, also looked good, striking out 9 over 7 shutout innings.

Rice's Austin Kubitza struggled in his matchup opposite Memphis' Sam Moll; UCLA's Nick Vander Tuig bested Arizona's Konner Wade. That was about it for premium pitching matchups.
