daytona is down 4-3 in the 7th. rhee didn't do that well - 4.2 ip, 8 h, 4 r, 0 bb, 4 k, 1 hr, 7 GO/3 FO. brett jackson has had a very good game - 3-3 with a double, walk and 2 SB's. vitters is 3-4 with a double.


peoria is in a rain delay ahead 4-0 after 4.5 innings. nick struck is probably done - 5 ip, 0 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 5 k. he was a 39th round pick out of a JuCo in the northwest. here's an article i found about him - there's a little bit of info about his stuff and how much he signed for (6 figures, including the cubs paying for college... which means he received money like a top 10-round pick: http://www.clackamasreview.com/sports/story.php?story_id=125131681593128000


castro is 1-3 with a sac fly; carpenter went 5 ip, 4 h, 1 r, 2 bb, 4 k, 1 hr, 6 GO/5 FO.

I am pretty intrigued with Nick Struck. One of my sleepers this year, he fits the athletic mold of pitchers that Wilken did so well with in 2008, and he has a decent, ready arsenal for a young, relatively raw arm. Furthermore, I wonder/think he can add a little velo to the fastball, which would really make him jump a lot more.


As much as I've anticipated the return of Dae-Eun, I have wondered if this was a kid that was better suited to be coming out of the pen. Early, though, and he's still working his way back somewhat, but the thought does cross my mind.

Yeah, he's still working his way back from TJS and he's at Daytona with only 40 prior A-ball innings under his belt.

Just to be clear, I'm not worried about Dae-Eun. It's early. That said, the durability questions (for starting) were in play a couple years ago, even before he missed a season. Just something to store in the back of the mind.


Btw, very nice start for Chris Carpenter. Also, Burke's 2/5 was a nice sight. 5/9 the past two nights - here's hoping he's putting something together.

With Spencer, the thing I'm more curious about is what type of power he really carries. He might have a shot to fill a bench role if he shows big time power, but I wonder if he is more above average game power.


Am I concerned about Lee/Watkins? A bit, but the thing is, both of those guys have fringe-ish bats as of now, due to the lack of power. It is a bit early, though. Reports on Lee's defense seem positive enough at the early stage, particularly as it regards to arm strength, which was a small concern for some.
