    For Springfield, Alcantara missed his start on Wednesday and could start today. Otherwise it should be Gomber.

    Alcantara joined the list of starters working out of the pen the rest of the way.

    Gomber with another boring no hitter through five.

    … And while I’m thinking about it.

    I think knizner has to crack our top ten. He’s had a heck of a year. Given his position and the performance of Springfields staff … Fairly solid.

    I know it will be hard to crack the top five but it is so hard to find catchers… Having two guys like kelly and knizner is almost unfair (not complaining).

    No no through six now.

    if gomber isn’t pitcher of the month in august… Someone was stupidly good.

    4-0 with 0.67 era … Before a no hitter through six tonight.

    Yeah maybe he blows up and give up ten runs in the seventh but I think it is safe to say he has mastered aa.

    Someone has been stupidly good – Ramon Santos at PB. But Gomber has been as well. They each may have one start left this month.

    Agreed on Gomber.

    And Knizner is really doing well. I remember during spring training seeing him get a lot more time with the big club (along with Ortega) instead of Jeremy I really wanted to watch him closer this year. Seems he is showing why their interest befor the season was shown

    Luke 3 out of 5 with a homer last night. Tearing it up since being sent down.

    Mayers with 2 shutout innings and 4 Ks. Why doesn’t it transfer?

    The St. Louis Cardinals system was 6-1 on Saturday. Our Player of the Day is Peoria’s Frederis Parra, who pitched seven scoreless innings in the Chiefs’ shutout of Kane County. Other pitching standouts include Austin Gomber, Connor Jones, Johan Oviedo and Diego Cordero.

    Does anyone know if Oviedo’s velocity is returning to the high
    90s? Someone said it was down this year.

    Ramon Santos(PB) has had a great Aug. except for one dip on the 14th… 5.0 inn. GS=33. Kruczynski(PEO) is another having a great AUG…. avr GS=62.8. State College’s Andy Summerville has been lights out in 5 starts GS avr=66.6. Seijas has really turned it around at Johnson City and has had his best month of his young pro career.
    But Gomber’s Aug. has been extraordinary…. an avg GS of 72 in 5 starts has him quieting some of his detractors because of some very average months early on. He’s back, baby. Go Lefty.

    Here was an update from Keith Law’s chat on Oviedo a few days back:

    Dan: Is Johan Oviedo the next big Cardinals pitching prospect? Has a ways to go but it seems like the upside is quite substantial.

    Keith Law: Upside is huge. Also, over/under on times I refer to him as Juan Carlos: 2.5.
