Minor league thread: Thursday

Thought I'd post this, with the Pirates off.  Well, for the hitters it's the third straight day off . . . .  Feel free to use it as a general purpose thread.

-- Indianapolis hosts Louisville at 7:05pm.  Reclamation project Chris Volstad (pictured) returns after throwing six one-hit, shutout innings in his first start.

-- Altoona hosting Akron is already underway.  Jason Creasy is making his second AA start.

-- Bradenton is just getting underway at Dunedin.  Frank Duncan starts for the Marauders.  He was probably ticketed for West Virginia this year, but ended up with Bradenton when they started the season without three-fifths of their projected rotation.  He had a very good first start.  Barrett Barnes is not in the lineup . . . ruh-roh.

-- West Virginia goes at Lexington at 7:05pm.  There's no link available yet.  Alex McRae, another pitcher who had a good first start, goes for the Power.  Jordan Luplow was expected to join the Power and hopefully will be in the lineup.
