    Carlson is batting seventh and playing right field tonight for the National League squad in the Futures Game. Gorman is listed as a reserve. In other news, Trejyn Fletcher has been promoted to Johnson City.

    Went back and watched MILB replays of Fernandez pitching, He throws 96-98 with run, a plus change up, and good slider. There were a lot of weak swings. When the time comes, he will make a very good addition to the Cardinals bullpen.
    On the live side, Cabrera gave up a walk single, and a homer to Iowa team. Considering this is a lot of firsts for him, first MLB appearance, first AAA assignment. I think we will see improvement by next year, if not sooner.

    I’ll just say that’s a very interesting gambit, promoting an 18-year-old who is striking out twice a game at his current level, and leave it at that.

    Never mind. I can’t quite leave it. If someone were going to be promoted from the GCL to the Appy League so early in the season, it feels like the 19-year-old with more walks than strikeouts who’s hitting .423/.531/.692 would be the one. (Not that Franklin Soto is the better prospect by any means. But he looks like the one who currently requires the challenge of a better league.)
