    1. Mr. Howard said he was resuming baseball activities and throwing, and will progress from there. It sounds like he’s on track for a return.

  1. With the Draft starting up, I took a moment to glance at the box scores. One guy, and I’ve mentioned him before, who is impressing me, is Jon Guzman. He and Garcia switch between 2B and SS in LKW. Over his last 20 games, he’s hitting .272 with an OBP of .341. Very nice for a 19 yo in A ball but the reason I chose 20 games is because he’s been on base in every one. of them. He’s also hit in 17 of them. The guy can field too.

    1. Agreed, he’s playing great. He’s running also. Stobbe is finally showing some life too. Great to see Gowdy bounce back.
      Muzziotti jumps right back in with two hits in his first game. Young kid, he’ll look good in Reading next month.

      1. Nice to see Muzziotti off to a good start. Through 176 PAs, hitting .311/.356/.429. Only nitpick I can see in the numbers is that he seems to hit a lot of grounders. I’d welcome input from anyone who has seen him play.

        In February, Fangraphs put him in the “Who we expect to make the 2020 top 100” under a category called “Advanced Young Bats with Defensive Value”.

    1. He’s been summoned to San Diego but won’t be activated unless Cutch needs to go on the IL.

    2. Ah this is great. I really like Haseley. If things go well, he could be a first division regular over time – if that happens it’s a very good outcome for a 1/8 pick.

  2. I was so ready to put Leftwich and Dohy in the ML bullpen by July, but man they have been atrocious in AAA. Really hope its just a learning curve.

    Also, a few people on this site have always liked Josh Stephen as an under the radar guy. My guy like that has always been Matt Kroon. He is old for his league, but the Phillies clearly liked him as they drafted him twice. Theres probably nothing to see there, but im a fan of just keep promoting guys until they give you a reason not to. Maybe he ends up being a ML caliber bench bat

  3. Ironpigs game starts at 8:05 my time. Breakfast and a ballgame. If Haseley replaces McCutchen, who replaces Haseley on the AAA roster?

    1. I;m guessing Hernandez will come off the DL shortly and replace Haseley. We had a discussion about being double jumped and Haseley is basically being double jumped. Frankly, I don’t think he is ready. But good luck.

  4. Gowdy has been incredibly miss and hit this year. His 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th appearances were ugly misses. (5th & 7th were for 0.1 and 0.0 ip!) His 2nd, 4th, 6th, & 8th appearances were strong. And now the trend is broken as his 9th is his second consecutive good outing! And 5 ip tied his career long.
    It’s great just to see him healthy though his inconsistency and his 26 bb in 26.1 ip confirm he’s got a long way to go. Hopefully, he’s turning a first corner (only 2 bb in last 2 starts over 8.1 ip).
