Astros Minor League Recap

New, 67 comments

I was supposed to write the recap yesterday morning until I woke up to my internet not working!  But, I'm back now and will be covering the minors again for the remaining few weeks of the season.  I have to send a big thanks to David and Josh for covering for me while I was gone (and my internet not working), I really appreciate it and I definitely enjoyed seeing my family.

There's a little player movement I need to catch you up on.  As I'm sure most of you know, George Springer spent about a week in Kissimmee at the GCL Astros facility and traveled to Tri-City yesterday.  Supposedly, he'll train for a few more days before he actually gets in the line-up.  Also leaving the GCL is Brad Dydalewicz, who will be leaving for Lexington today.  His stats weren't good in the GCL with his walks still too high, but he has always been a high walk guy.  While Tri-City gained Springer, they lost Tommy Shirley.  Shirley is also joining Lexington today.  I haven't seen any corresponding moves to make room for them in Lexington.

The big performance last night came from the one we call ObieHockey in Corpus.  He turned in his most definite best start in the Astros organization and will have to continue to do so to get me to rank him higher.  As many of you probably know, I'm much higher on Clemens than Obie, but I also feel Obie has a better floor.
