    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    Yep, beat me to it. Looks like Engel is back

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    They have 13 pitchers already so another one doesn't make sense to me. Engel makes sense positionally, but also doesn't really make sense because why would we want Engel up? Have they just decided Tilson can't hit either so we might as well have Engel up for his defense? Could it be Tim Anderson?

    Yeah, good to see him performing. I know you know this, but he is going to have to move quickly given his age. At least he is in Great Falls, but honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing him move up to Kanny before the end of the year. He needs to be in AA by the start of 2021, if not earlier.

    I still think Robert is a guy I want in the middle of the order because I don't see him as a high OBP guy in the majors. I do see him as having huge power though. I think he will be more of a Baez type bat than Moncada or Eloy.

    He got hit on the jersey. Not even sure it hit his body. It was chest high and he leaned out of the way, but it got his jersey solidly.

    Sheets keeps this up, he gets dealt in the offseason. Him and Walker + another OFer isn't a bad package. Under the assumption that they are going to keep Abreu, there's no room for Sheets. Vaughn isn't far behind him so 1B/DH is Vaughn/Abreu.

    Ryan Sweeney was a "golden god."

    I was "watching" on gameday when I saw Robert was going to hit that inning. When I saw the ole "in play, run(s)" I was thinking, man it would be cool if he did. Damn near lost my mind when I saw it. He's going to put up some serious numbers in that park with that ball.

    No Steele Walker in the lineup tonight. He on his way to Birmingham finally?

    Both four-pitch walks. I know the assumption is he won't stay in Kanny long, but the four-pitch walks are as much a sign of him being too good for the level as anything else. If pitchers are still pitching around him, move him up.

    I wonder why Steele Walker is still in Winston-Salem. Birmingham is trotting out Damek Tomshaw in the outfield.

    70 extra base hits?! 70?! The dude had 28 in 500 plate appearances in the minors. You're asking him to double his power as he goes UP to the majors.

    I don't dislike Madrigal as a prospect, but it's funny how he went from criminally underrated to criminally overrated in a month.

    Mid-Year Top 10 Prospects

    I don't see Madrigal being "merely below average" at power as more likely than Vaughn being a top 5-10 hitter in baseball, to be honest. The way Madrigal swings there's no way he's going to add notable power. I didn't think this was a controversial take. Listen to Law and Callis talk about Madrigal, and it's the same thing: There's just no path to him having a high OPS. He can hit for high average, walk an OK amount and be a slap hitter while being a good baserunner and very good fielder. That's still a limited ceiling though.

    Vaughn has a lower ceiling?! Man, Madrigal has one good month and suddenly this guy is a rock star. Madrigal is the very definition of limited ceiling.
