    I think a good example of undervalues for previous years is Helsley. I believe he didn’t make Baseball America’s top 30 until 2018.

    It’s time to examine some other options, and move on from Wacha. He’s been a very good Cardinal. but as bad as our offense has been overall, we can’t get behind 6 runs. Not sure why Ponce DE Leon hasn’t been given more chances. Sure, he might be a 5 inning guy, but at least in his short career he has been effective. Or I see the most likely, and realistic trade partner being the Royals looking at Duffy and Diekman. Will SMith might be possible, but I do not think Madbum will waive his no trade clause, unless heavily compensated. Plus the Giants seem to be wanting 4 top prospects. That’s too much for a possible rental.

    Oviedos best AA performance to date. Walked too many, but limited damage to 2 runs. Struck out 9. Also, Fernandez had a great 3 inning stint, and has stood out this season. It shouldn’t be too long before he goes to AAA.

    If my count is correct, they have signed 24 of 40 drafted. Under slot/over slot, who knows overall. And as far as if this is a good draft, we won’t know that for 3 or 4 years.

    I am impressed with the depth of Thompson’s curve/slider. I can see why he had so many strikeouts. He could move very fast. If healthy, he could start at AA, and possibly see AAA next year a la Hudson.

    I wonder if there is a chance Junior Fernandez could be added if Helsley is out for a while? Assuming Cabrera might be sent back to start at Memphis. I know Junior doesn’t have AAA experience, but that hasn’t stopped them from pulling a AA pitcher directly to the bigs. Junior has pitched very well lately, and like Knizner and Edman would need to be added prior to this years Rule 5 draft any way.

    Of the first 10 rounds, how signable are the last 3 who have not signed? I was thinking Ralston was a senior, so he does not have much leverage. Also, it seems like Thomas might have signed for under slot $$$.

    A point I have always made is that we largely rely on home grown talent. But once a rookie loses his prospect status, that is not to say he isn’t valuable, whether he is a starter or a backup.

    If they traded JMart, Ravelo would be a logical replacement, although surely better defense.

    I’d like to see Montero get healthy. He’d had some good spurts at Springfield. Maybe he’ll rehab when State College starts in a few days if he’s close.

    I hope Shildt has a short leash tonight for Wacha. Let’s not get behind 3 or 4 runs trying to boost Wachas confidence. Bring PDL in if that is the case. Granted, due to rustiness, Wacha won’t likely get much past the 4th, maybe 5th inning. It’s a damn shame Reyes couldn’t have shown improvement. He did strike out 10, so maybe he’s getting closer.

    Baseball America has a 2019 top 30 international prospect list. It appears many already have relationships with MLB clubs, and are just waiting for July 2nd. Also interesting is that 8 of the top 30 are listed as shortstops.

    It will be interesting for these draftees that sign as to how they fit in the top 40 prospects. I woiuld guess Thompson start in at # 2 behind Gorman. Fletcher is more difficult ton predict, but his high draft status should get tim in the top 10, and Locey could be somewhere around Roberts in the 10-15 range.

    Parsons has had an amazing run. I can omly remember one bad outing where he gave up 12 hits, and 5 or 6 runs.

    I hav always been high on Julio, he is just 21. Good defensively, good hit tool, power potential.

    Speaking of streaky, hopefully Toerner has turned the corner after a bad month. He hitting around .400 at one time. If Sosa could add a little more pop, he might be a good trade chip. Sosa will be out of options next year.

    Talking Sosa makes me look for Allen Codoba and Luis Perdomo. I am guessing they are hurt, or at AAA. Goes to show you that taking inexperienced players usually doesn’t pay off.

    You can also get a save by pitching the last 3 innings when winning by more than 3 runs. Scorer’s discretion I believe.
