  1. We’re finally starting to get a little more hitting from several guys on each level. Brito and Torres were both good hitters at one point and both seem to be finding their swing now. Ortiz is certainly hitting better as are Friscia and O’Hoppe. Maybe, just maybe, the hitting coaches are helping the hitters and just maybe, after a year off, the hitters are starting to catch up.

  2. Also, what’s the deal with Lackney. He’s 24 which is old for A ball normally but he lost last year. He’s now gone 14 innings with no runs but in his last two games, one in Reading and last night in Jersey Shore he had lots of walks and strike outs (7 and 6 in 4 innings) so I’m guessing his ball moves a lot. If his control gets a little better I’m assuming he’ll go back to Reading quickly due to his age. Anyone know about his arm and his stuff? A late blooming prospect?

  3. Vlad, Jr, Tatis, Jr., Soto, Pache, Andres Jimenez, Leodys Taveras …all members of Jhailyn Ortiz’ J2-signing class.
    And most ranked below him in that class.
    He may be getting the motivational desire to get to the show.

    1. He has skills, no doubt, and he’s a surprisingly good athlete. He’s just had way too much swing and miss up to now. Fingers crossed he’s figuring it out.

      1. I must say I’m shocked at his body transformation. He looks to be in tremendous shape. It would be a wonderful thing, and much needed, if he turn the corner and become a high end prospect.

        Regardless, by the looks of him, he has taken a great approach to give him the best chance to succeed. Kudos to him.

      1. Andrew definitely did. Sometime in 2020 I think though I think later in the summer so he may not be back this year. No idea about Brett.
