High A Dish: Frazier Making A Smooth Transition

California League

Prospect Of The Day

For today’s Hot Sheet, first baseman Lars Anderson was in the discussion for being listed as Not Hot. However, he went 2-for-4 last night with a double, a run scored and an RBI, giving him a slight edge over the other candidates. Although he went 3-for-19 this week, he did draw seven walks and only struck out three times. He’ll start finding holes in the field. No need to panic.

Prospect Of The Day

All Todd Frazier has done since his promotion is hit. After Chris Valaika was sent to Double-A, Frazier filled his spot at high Class A Sarasota (Reds) where he is off to a good start, hitting .296/.333/.593 since moving up. Last night he went 2-for-4 with his second home run of the season, a solo shot in the seventh.

Prospect Nuggets

Shortstop Cale Iorg went 2-for-5 with his fourth double, a run and RBI in an 8-7 win over Dunedin (Blue Jays)…Adrian Cardenas was 2-for-3 with two runs scored…Not to make light of addictions, but Jeremy Jeffress made his 2008 debut last night and faced another hurler who has had his share of setbacks thanks to drugs. Jeffress and Jeff Allison faced off with Allison getting the better break. Allison went five innings allowing two runs on five hits. He is now 2-4, 2.47. Jeffress got the loss after lasting just 2 2/3 innings, allowing five runs on six hits and four walks, but he struck out five.
