Greeting, sorry for the absence. But I'm like Franklin Gutierrez still technically on the DL, but able to do some small bits of baseball blog activity.
Here's today's minor league report. You'll notice we are using a different format where we embed the PDF version in the blog, that allows you to see not only the notes but also the box scores from the games as well.
Dustin Ackley hit a very long home run in Fresno yesterday and almost hit another. How do I know that? Well, I listened to the dulcet tones of Mike Curto on the radio last night.
Here's the story Mike wrote for the TNT on the game. Starter Blake Beavan had a solid start for the Rainiers last night as well.
Of note: Kyle Seager is hitting very well for Double A Jackson, while Nick Franklin has started off slow in High Desert but did have a hit last night. It also seems like the work that Steven Baron did in the offseason on his swing not only carried over to spring training but to the regular season with Class A Clinton.
