What do we make of Nick Allgeyer? In his first two starts of the season Allgeyer had a 1.50 ERA with twin six inning starts with just one run allowed in each. That earned Allgeyer a call-up to the big leagues where we know he didn't appear. Back to AAA then and in three games since his return Allgeyer has conceded eleven runs in 10.1 innings. He has gone from major league potential to just hanging on in the AAA rotation. Allgeyer is probably not as good as he was in the first two games, nor as bad as he has been recently. But he needs to find what made him successful at the start of the season.

The same question could be asked of Adam Kloffenstein. In his first three starts, Kloff gave up a total of one run. In his last two starts he was charged with seven runs and six runs. On Saturday he didn't get out of the second inning. Can he, like Allgeyer, fix what ails him?

Allgeyer took the loss for the Bisons on Saturday as did Kloffenstein for the C's. New Hampshire split a doubleheader, Zach Logue had twelve strikeouts in game one. Dunedin had the day off.

The Blue Jays are suffering bullpen woes at the moment, and so are the affiliates. New Hampshire led 2-1 after seven and lost 7-2. Vancouver took a 5-1 lead to the ninth but three walks, a hit batter, a wild pitch and a single brought the game to 5-4 with two runners on. But unlike the Jays, the C's got that final out. Dunedin led 5-1 in the fourth but Clearwater tied it in the eighth and won it in the tenth. Buffalo lost early. After a whitewash yesterday the C's were the only winners on the day.

Bauxite Mike Green is a former contributor to these minor league updates. He must have been feeling the itch today as he summarised the afternoon. Here it is: The affiliates are 3-0 so far (edit 4-0) and Vancouver has a 1 run lead in the middle innings (edit: they won in extras). Carl Edwards Jr. got the win with a scoreless 7th inning for the Bisons. SWR threw 5 shutout innings with 4 walks and 7 strikeouts. Samad Taylor homered among his 3 hits and Otto Lopez doubled twice and walked to lead the Fisher Cat offence. Thanks Mike.

Cameron Eden had the walk off hit for the C's, his fourth hit of the day. He also drove in the tying run in the ninth.

It hasn't been a good start to the season for the Dunedin Blue Jays but it got worse on Saturday when they were no hit by Bradenton. They held Bradenton to just two runs, their second best pitching performance of the year, and all for naught. Conner Overton made his second "emergency" start and pitched six shutout innings as Buffalo won again. New Hampshire took a bullpen loss. Austin Martin had two hits but was pulled from the game in the sixth. Vancouver won behind Adam Kloffenstein.

He is no Otto Velez, yet, but Otto Lopez went 4-4 on Friday, scoring three runs. All the runs by Otto came off the Somerset pitcher, Glenn Otto. It was some Otto on Otto violence. The Fisher Cats won that game. The Canadians won too with Canada's own Tanner Kirwer hitting a grand slam. The Bisons also won while Dunedin, this years lovable losers, lost despite home runs from Miguel Hiraldo and Orelvis Martinez.
