High A Dish: With Price Up, Hellickson The Focus Again

The California League had a day off in preparation for the Carolina-California League All Star Game.

Carolina League

Prospect Of The Day

There was minimal action in the CL yesterday as one game was shortened by rain. Lynchburg’s (Pirates) Jamie Romak raised his average to .295 after going 2-for-4 against Myrtle Beach (Braves). His two hits were doubles and he had three RBIs and two runs scored in the 11-2 rout of the Pelicans.

Prospect Nuggets

Brandon Erbe tossed four innings and was handed a tough loss as Frederick (Orioles) fell to Potomac (Nationals) in five innings. Erbe gave up two runs on three hits while walking four and striking out two. He is now 6-6, 4.25 this season…Beau Mills was 2-for-5 with his ninth home run and Alex Castillo lifted Kinston (Indians) to a win with a solo home run in the bottom of the tenth, making the final 12-11.

What To Watch For Today

The CL will take a day off as the Carolina-California League All Star game will be held in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Florida State League

Prospect Of The Day

With David Price in Double-A, Jeremy Hellickson is once again the center of attention in the Vero Beach (Rays) rotation. Last night, Hellickson tossed seven innings, allowing just one hit and striking out four. He improved to 7-1, 2.00.

Prospect Nuggets

Storms reached the East Coast yesterday and postponed two FSL games, but Logan Morrison is still swinging a pretty hot stick, raising his average to .331 last night. He went 3-for-4 with a double and run scored in Jupiter’s (Marlins) 10-4 loss to Lakeland (Tigers)…Andrew Carpenter made his second start in high Class A after being demoted from Double-A where his outings weren’t going so well. But at least he showed a flash of dominance last night. He went eight innings allowing just two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three.

What To Watch For Today

There will be two doubleheaders today with yesterday’s postponements. Daytona (Cubs) and Tampa (Yankees) begin at 5 p.m. EDT as does Sarasota (Reds) and St. Lucie (Mets).
