Astros Minor League Recap: June 28, 2012

Something has to be done about the Lancaster rotation. It's in dire need of upgrading. The rotation looked fairly decent when rosters were announced but with Bobby Doran promoted to Corpus Christi and Wes Musick promoted to Corpus and then Oklahoma City much earlier in the season, the rotation is pretty thin. Ruben Alaniz remains the headliner and Tyson Perez is interesting but has struggled since his first three outings that opened some eyes. But, after those two, nothing gets me excited as Zachary Grimmett has potential but isn't quite ready and David Martinez is an older prospect that fits better in the bullpen. The final piece is Jorge De Leon who may not have a rotation job anymore after last night. When a starter just doesn't pitch well consistently, he gets pulled from the rotation, and failing to make it out of the first inning doesn't help at all. Nicholas Tropeano's time in Lancaster may be coming. He's capable of getting strikeouts and has a good GB%, the two things it takes to succeed in Lancaster.

We waited for a long time for Jean Carlos Batista to finally show up last year with decent results. Now, he's in Greeneville and he's showing up big. He's spraying doubles with the best of them and he's hitting for a high average. He lost some development time with the delay over his age discrepency, but he seems to be making up time now.
