    Peoria almost no-hit and loses 2-0.

    O’Neill…far too good for AAA, but can’t seem to get any traction at the big league level. Huh.

    Parsons was shelled in his Palm Beach debut. Eight runs, five earned on 12 hits in four-plus innings. He had allowed just one earned run in his 35 innings with Peoria.

    However, the offense was up 13-3 when he was knocked out so the Beach Birds are still leading 13-9.

    I hope O’Neill doesn’t end up a AAAA. Still lots of time, and luckily Thomas has looked very good.

    O’Neill fanned to end tonight’s game with the tying run on second. In his three games back with Memphis so far, he has three homers, three strikeouts, a single and no walks. 4-for-13 (.308) with six RBI.

    I haven’t seen anything about Pinder’s exit from last night’s game in the fourth. He scored on a wild pitch and was replaced in the order by Plummer. Interesting that Toerner was moved from RF-CF and Plummer installed in RF. Plummer had been considered a CF but hasn’t started one game there this season.

    For all of the O’Neill fanfare he still hasn’t proven that he is more than Grichuk 2.0. He likely won’t be able to shake that label until he is given the chance to play everyday at the MLB level. The question is whether that opportunity will come in St. Louis or not.

    I’d be torn to whether trade O’Neill (only in a MadBum, maybe Scherzer type deal), or keep him around for 2020 after Ozuna leaves and he would compete with Thomas and others for the starting job. Heck, Fowler could be dealt as well this summer, or after the season, as he actually has value right now.
