Minor League Update

-P- Indianapolis: Brad Eldred is posting a pretty extreme Eldredy line so far, hitting .192/.214/.591 (and that's BA/OBP/SLG; I know, it's hard to tell). Tom Gorzelanny has been dazzling, striking out 13 batters and allowing only four hits and no runs in his first nine innings. Nerio Rodriguez and Scott Strickland have pitched well, too. It can't be long before Strickland is pitching for the Bucs.

-P- Altoona: Adam Boeve is going berzerk for the Curve, hitting .519 with three extra-base hits in his first 27 at bats. Brian Graham, however, says Boeve "needs to improve his defense." Jorge Vasquez has struck out seven of the nine batters he's faced.

-P- Lynchburg: There isn't a single decent prospect in the Hillcats' lineup right now; their offense thus far has come from minor-league vets like Brad Correll (not to be confused with 2005 second-rounder Brad Corley), Mike Carlin, Vince Rooi, and John Suomi. On the pitching side, Kyle Bloom is the only prospect who has performed well, striking out five and allowing no runs in five innings in his only start. Neil Walker is still on the shelf.

-P- Hickory: Andrew McCutchen has started slowly, but Brad Corley and Steve Lerud have hit well. Eddie Prasch isn't showing much with the bat so far. He also looks like he's twelve years old. On the pitching side, Todd Redmond and Matt Swanson have performed well so far; Redmond is a polished junior college product who some think lacks upside, but Swanson could move quickly.
