Musgrove Shines in Second Triple-A Start

What throws pretty hard and doesn't walk anyone? Joe Musgrove

In his second start for Triple-A Fresno, Musgrove allowed two runs on a two-run home run but was dominant the rest of the game. Seven strikeouts in six innings without a walk. He had an 8/3 GO/FO ratio and needed just 82 pitches. Of the 82 pitches, 61 were strikes. He hasn't skipped a beat in Triple-A and as he gets stretched out to higher pitch counts, I expect the Astros to be calling his name to the majors.

Davis Erupts in Hooks 8-4 Win

I don't even know how you describe a night like J.D. Davis'. Having one home run is a good night. Having two is a great night. But, having three is ridiculous. Before last night, he had four on the season which was somewhat of a disappointment, but the additional three home runs raise his SLG from .413 to .500. His ISO went from .182 to .246. Something thats actually higher than you'd expect considering it was .231 in Lancaster last year. All while striking out 25% of the time (not shabby for a power hitter) and a 10% walk rate. He also had a .286 BABIP coming into last night. Someone with a 26% line-drive rate should have a higher BABIP than that.

Ferguson/Stubbs Knock Homers in 7-6 JetHawks Win

Seem to be more people talking about Garret Stubbs recently, and it's deserved. But, I'm still getting on this Drew Ferguson bandwagon. I'm not on it saying he's a future star, but more I can see him being a major leaguer that the Astros drafted in the 19th round. He has nine stolen bases this season which shows some speed. He hasn't played much of any CF and spends most of his time in LF but does play RF quite a bit. With some more power (something I think could be there due to minimal load in his swing) and continued all field approach which he's shown, there could could be a bench player later on.

Tucker Performs Beyond His Age in 9-4 Win

It really is getting ridiculous at how well Kyle Tucker is performing this season. He's 19 years old in Low-A ball and crushing it. His BA (I know I know) is .462 in his last 10 games. It's not a challenge for him this season. In that time frame he has five walks and has been struck out six times. Here's an investing thing too, he has ten stolen bases in that frame. When his body develops some muscle, he'll be hitting the cover off the ball and become a real threat in multiple ways.
