Your affiliates played .500 baseball last night. Jon Harris got his first professional win in Lansing pitching a five-inning shutout. Lansing also posted the oddity of the evening with the win on just one hit. Drew Hutchison was up to 100 pitches by inning five in Buffalo.

SYRACUSE 14 Buffalo 6

Seven runs in the eighth put this game to bed. Drew Hutchison pitched five innings of four run baseball. He allowed two homeruns and walked three. He was reportedly at 100+ pitches by inning five. The Bisons’ offence was led by Andy Burns and Junior Lake. Lake had three hits and a homerun. He drove in four. Burns too had three hits and accounted for the other two runs driven in. Dalton Pompey did not play.

Jeremy Gabryszwski was very Jeremy Gabryszwski last night. He pitched four and a third of one run baseball. No strikeouts and two walks. He exited as a result of a high pitch count. Christian Lopes had two hits and Rowdy Tellez had just the one. Tellez continues to acclimate to AA baseball.

Daytona 3 DUNEDIN 5

Dunedin did all its damage in the second. Dickie Joe Thon singled to drive in two as part of a two-hit day. Number nine-hitter Jason Leblebijian hit a three-run homerun to give Dunedin a five-spot for the inning. Conner Greene got the win with six innings of three run (two earned) baseball. Greene struck out four and walked one. Anthony Alford had a hit and a walk, while Richard Urena was hitless in four trips. He also threw the ball away for the eighth time this season.

Quad Cities 0 LANSING 1

First rounder Jon Harris pitched five shutout innings. He allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out two. Harris walked away with the win, his first as a professional. Lansing collected just the one hit. They walked nine times and ultimately scored the only run of the game on a double play after loading the bases with three walks.

Fascinating game in Lansing. Out-hit 10-1, and their only run came on a double play ball, but they still got the W. Lansing turned three DP's, picked off a runner at first and Lane Thomas in the outfield threw out two runners. On this day defence topped offence.

Michael Bourn played again for Dunedin yesterday.  I'm a little surprised that he's still in Dunedin after 9 games.  Thought he'd be in Buffalo by now.  It looks like he won't be ready for the majors for at least another week or two. 

Who would you rather add to the Jays roster when the 8th reliever is demoted:  Michael Bourn or Andy Burns?  There are arguments for both.  Burns, with his strong numbers against LHP, would be a good platoon partner for Smoak.  Bourn, on the other hand, would be an additional pinch-runner for the days when Carrera is replacing Saunders, and would be a better late-inning defensive replacement than Carrera.

3 good games in a row for Harris. hard to get excited about a 22yr old in A ball but it's a good first step at least.

Burns has his bat back up above league average now. Might be putting himself in line for a callup soon.

Hutchinson is not ready to come up....

Pompey finally back in the Buffalo lineup tonight.  Seems his minor-league stints (over the past couple years) are constantly being interrupted by minor injuries or promotions or demotions.   I hope he has a chance to play regularly for a few weeks now, and then he can force his way back into the Jays outfield conversation.

Is Rios really "a guy"? Will his stuff play as he climbs the ladder?

About Bisons' lineup -- again, David Adams is rising fast in walks but not excelling in .slg: shall he play leadoff. Also Kotchman draws walk with less .obp but better .slg: shall he bats 2nd.

2B Adams for walks and obp
DH Kotchman for obp, .slg and less strikeouts than walks
3B Dominguez for overall hitting
1B Montero for overall especially .slg
OF Lake / IF Berti for .slg
OF Brown for .slg, putting the ball in play, being struck out is not much an issue
OF Pompey  / SS Mier for putting the ball in pay and base-stealing
C Jimenez for .slg in potential HR
SS/2B Casilla for .avg, putting the ball in play

C Sanchez is the batter out of this lineup: he and Jimenez shall be pinch hitting in late-innings for the bottom of the lineup and replace the other as catcher -- until one perform in hitting much better than the other.

no reason to discount rios at all. low 90s fastball, slider, changeup, good command. sandwiched a bad bluefield 4.65fip between a good gcl 3.00fip and vancouver 3.28fip. age appropriate for his levels, too.

his first year of fullseason ball this year has been outright dominant (1.20era/1.63fip), and the sample is already half as big as any of his short seasons.

nothing wow here yet but no reason to dismiss him.

another nice start from hernandez today. I still think he'll be a good bullpen piece for us sometime this year.

LeBlanc is performing well too. Do Triple-A non-prosepcts have any trade value if they perform well ?
