The Chiefs want Adam Lind back, they only had two hits in a loss.  New Hampshire weren't much better, they had three hits through eight innings before doubling their hit total in the ninth and losing 8-1.  Lansing were down 6-0 after two innings, and 13-0 after five, and lost as the Lumber Kings lived up to their name.  Dunedin saved the day by taking the lead in the top of the ninth before Connor Falkenbach had to work around two errors and an attempted double steal to get the save.

Two and two on the day.  Syracuse and Dunedin mirrored their parent by losing and getting five and three hits respectively.  Starters David Purcey and Gus Chacin could not be blamed for the losses.  New Hampshire won behind a good start from Ricky Romero and a first star performance by Chris Gutierrez.  Lansing scored two in the eighth to record a come from behind win.

Travis Snider was called up to New Hampshire yesterday and went 1-5 in his debut.

You'd think that Adam Lind is next in line for a promotion as he was back from a sore neck last night and went 2-4.

Not one starter on the farm went five innings yesterday and only one went as long as four innings. Regardless, the affiliates went 3-1 and the one starter who went longer than four innings was the one who had the outing to forget.

Only one win on the farm Wednesday and unusually it is the Chiefs who record it.  Jorge Velandia's two run home run in the eighth was the winning blow.  Davis Romero and John Parish pitched well in the win.  New Hampshire and Dunedin were easily beaten as starters Brandon Magee and Reidier Gonzalez took the losses.  Lansing lost although Justin Jackson had four hits.

I was in Fort Myers last weekend to see the Dunedin Jays take on the Minnesota affiliate in a three game series.  Game recaps have already been posted so I will not cover the games but instead provide a scouting report on some of the players.  I also received updates on several players from other teams which I will add to the bottom of this story.  Finally don't expect to see Gustavo Chacin in the big leagues any time soon.

Another 3-1 day on the farm.  And another strong performance from a former first rounder.

There were three strong starts turned in on the farm last night. One was turned by a former first round pick, another by a man with big league experience and a third by a pitcher whose stock is rising after placing 27th on Top 30 list at the end of last season. Unfortunately, a former starter trying to work his way back to the majors did not fare nearly so well in High-A. In the end it was an exciting night in the minors, with a pair of two-run victories, a one-run victory and a one-run defeat. New Hampshire continues to have problems with the Connecticut Defenders and fine performances by Scott Campbell and Ricky Romero weren’t enough to give them a victory. Campbell and Romero both missed out one of the three stars, as there were several outstanding outings in the organization last night.
