Minor League Open Thread: July 10, 2014

Dan Mullan

Let's discuss the action on the farm tonight.

How sweet is this headline on the national MLB SBNation Site:

Astros sweep Rangers into last place in AL West



You can follow the Minor League action with this link.


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.

Rest of the Rookie Squads will have already finished playing by the time this post goes up.
