GCL Rays rained out


  1. Oscar Hernandez went 4-4 with 2 HRs and 5 RBIs.He now has 17 HRs 47 RBIs in 161 ABs and is hitting .416!!!!

  2. Interestingly, BA rated Hak-Ju Lee as #22 on the midseason prospect list...

    Didn't expect to see him so high, although did expect him to be in the top 50. Obviously scouts are saying good things.

    Chris Archer dropped out of the top 50 however, Jennings at #20 and Moore at #3 rated as a 'tier 1' prospect. Of which there are currently 5. Not bad to be in a club with Trout and Harper.
