Minor League Ball Gameday: Friday, April 11

Lucas Giolito - Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

Probable starters for the upcoming slate of games as well as how the Top 100 prospects fared.

Welcome to the Gameday folks! Apologies for the late publish, but we still have more than enough time to discuss all this prospecty goodness.A number of Top 100 position players were on point, racking up hits in bunches. Jose Abreu led the way with another pair of home runs, giving him four on the short season. Nationals phenom Lucas Giolito showed why he has ace potential, striking out six in five innings while only allowing two baserunners (one hit, one walk) and also getting six ground outs to one fly out.

Check out the rest of the performances below in addition to probable starters and the Duel of the Day between a pair of Top 100 pitchers. Enjoy everyone.
