Princeton Rays off

GCL Twins 4, GCL Rays 3
Blake Snell pitched three scoreless innings


  1. Good to see McEachern bounce back with a strong performance.

  2. Rumor, but I think it's true- Pitcher Rehab Trevor Shull is now in HV

  3. Isn't pitcher Rob Dickmann from HV about due for a promotion? older and .99 ERA. Hate to lose him, but hate to see him being held back.

  4. Lyerly is now 3rd on the team in batting avg. He is batting .294.

  5. Craige is also 14 for 14 on stolen bases. He is the only guy in the NYPL in the top 25 the hasn't been thrown out.

  6. Time to promote Derek Dietrich... what are the rays waiting for?

  7. There's really no place for Dietrich to go- Bortnick and Lee are blocking him, etc.
    Not a rumor- Trevor Shull arrived in the Hudson Valley yesterday- just in time for a rain out.
    Still no word on Rob Dickmann being promoted. I'm surprised he's being held back.

  8. In my opinion, Dietrich is gonna be in the pros before Bortnick anyways.. he has shown tremendous power and is a solid defender. I know Bortnick is a heck of a fielder but his offense isnt as booming as what it has been. Dietrich also has the smarts of the game..
