    Gomez hit one too. These two are incredible.

    Gorman 3-5 with no K’s in this 8-2 Memphis triumph. PDJ 0-4…….but there are favorable signs from his performance, as he only struck out once.

    Maybe under the radar a little, Herrera is up to .310 at Memphis

    “Maybe under the radar a little, Herrera is up to .310 at Memphis.”

    Good call, grey ghost.
    Since starting the season in a nasty little 3-for-17 funk with 10 K’s and zero walks, Ivan The Terrific is batting .352/.463/.574 in 67 trips to the plate — with 11 walks and just 9 whiffs. Smallish sample, but quite an impressive one nevertheless.

    There’s not much doubt that Herrera, Gorman, Walker, and Winn constitute the best quartet of position prospects in the minors. All very young for their leagues, all enjoying tremendous hitting success, and all but Walker with a chance to stick at up-the-middle defensive positions for at least the next 5 or 6 years.

    Herrera and Knizner may very well be the duo we’ve been waiting for all these years. I’m liking the potential to replace Yadi well for the next decade now.

    And Pages on their heels with his 1.000+ OPS in Springfield.

    We were saying similar about O’Neill and Carlson last year. Now they can’t hit their weight. Optimism is called for, I agree, but don’t write it in ink yet.

    They’ll need to work on 3B Walker’s throws to 1st from third or change his position. Of the +/-50 grounders hit to him he has 12 errors… mostly on throws. BTW…. Winn looks like a kid that’s worth waiting for. Maybe the cream of that crop.

    Jordan Walker will be a corner outfielder at the MLB level, Ny. (Even money says he gets some work in left and right before getting promoted to Triple-A.)

    Walker has the legs for left field and the rifle for right. Just my opinion: even if there were no Nolan Arenado in the organization, and no Nolan #2, I still think Jordan Walker was going to end up in the outfield so his speed and throwing arm could be used in tandem.

    And I agree with you that Masyn Winn’s upside is considerable — at the plate, in the field, and on the basepaths. Imagine Tommy Edman with a much stronger arm and a smidge more power. If the season ended now, I’d have Winn among the overall top 20-25 minor leaguers. Pretty good for a team’s 3rd-best prospect, huh?

    Jake Woodford is Memphis’ starter tonight, not Liberatore, who looks to be skipped this time through the rotation.

    Tink Hence is the new starter for Palm Beach tonight. This has been a long time coming.

    …and Tink threw a real nice debut, with just one hit in three innings (bunt single) and five whiffs to one walk. There was one cheap run — the bunt, a steal, another steal, and an RBI groundout — but all in all a nearly peerless performance for the young man.

    Bravo, Markevian.

    Without Gorman, Burleson was the only batter in Memphis’s lineup hitting over .230 last night.

    This Springfield game sets up real nice for Connor Lunn. Look for him to spin a nice game tonight.
