How sweet is this headline on the national MLB SBNation Site:
AAA - New Orleans at the Oklahoma City RedHawks
Asher Wojciechowski starts for OKC vs Elih Villanueava
AA - Corpus Christi Hooks at the Frisco RoughRiders
34th round pick of the 2012 draft, Jordan Jankowski starts for the Hooks. He was taken out of Catawba College in Salisbury, NC which has a total enrollment for 1,279. He starts against Alex Claudio of the RoughRiders who is usually a relief pitcher (and a good one at that).
A+ - Inland Empire 66ers (LAA) at the Lancaster JetHawks
Mark Appel starts for the JetHawks. Please, Mark, just give us a little shred of hope. I checked the hourly forecast and it appears that the wind will be blowing out at about 19 MPH. He starts against Daniel Tobik.
A - Kane County Cougars (CHC) at the Quad Cities RiverBandits
Kevin Comer starts for QC. He was part of the Blue Jays trade that exchanged about half a baker's dozen players total. He starts against Juan Paniagua who's been pretty good for Kane County. Kyle Schwarber (the cubs first round pick) plays for Kane County and has already hit 8 HRs on the year.
Rookie - Tri-City ValleyCats at the Jamestown Jammers
Tri-City's starter is TBD at the time I'm writing this.
Rookie - Johnson City Cardinals at the Greeneville Astros
34th round brother of Jordan Jankowski, Joshua James starts for Greeneville. He was selected in the 34th round in the 2014 draft out of Western Oklahoma and is 21 years old. He has some wild stats in only 7.0 IP in his pro career. 14 Ks and 4 BBs with a 3 to 1 GO/AO rate. 34th round magic and Nolan Ryan just came back to the Astros?!?! That's it, I'll call it. Joshua James is bound to be a stud.
