Astros Minor League Recap: June 26, 2012

Hey! It's the return of the recap. It's been one heck of a week for me. Brief discription is that there was a lot of mis-communication involving a research course that I'm in (even though I'm not actually in class right now). What it boils down to is that my group and I had to do a project in a weeks time that many groups are accomplishing in a full month. Wasn't our fault, but we had to fix the situation and we are on track to finish in time. I still have some work to do this afternoon on it, but will have time. Thanks to Tim for posting a recap on Monday as well as sharing his observations from seeing Lexington

A lot has happened since my last post, and the team here at TCB has done a phenomenal job of staying all over it. While there hasn't been a true top prospect added to the system, Robbie Grossman has a good argument to be in the 5-10 group.

Only two players that have come in the recent trades have made their debuts and that Carlos Perez and Asher Wojciechowski. Perez's debut was two nights a go and he picked up a single, but where he has really shined is behind the plate with his arm. I'll let you take a look at the note on him below. Wojciechowski pitched seven innings of one run ball in which he struck out six. He allowed seven hits and walked three.

Robbie Grossman is expected to start in CF for the Hooks tonight, so debuts are beginning to rack up soon.

There's been a lot of movement with the minor league rosters and I've seen them all posted in comments I believe. The big one is that Jarred Cosart, Jose Cisnero, and Jake Buchanan were promoted to OkC while Paul Clemens was sent to CC. It's nice to see Cisnero get a nod for the promotion, although it is aggressive. Cisnero struggles with command and that will be tested in triple-A. His stuff will work there. He's gonna get have to meet the challenge sooner or later and since he's not a big starting pitcher prospect, it's worth the risk.

One thing of note: Yes, Kyle Redinger has been moved from 3B to pitcher, but no he is not in Tri-City. His addition to the roster is nothing more than to fill rosters. He is still in Florida working on the position change.

The big news: Carlos Correa goes yard in back to back days!
