Minor League Ball Gameday: Saturday, May 24

Bakersfield outfielder Jesse Winker. - Doug Gray aka dougdirt

Welcome to the Gameday

Good afternoon fellow minor league enthusiasts. Unfortunately, due to a prior commitment and moving apartments, there will be no recaps of yesterday's action. I will point out a few stand out performance but they will only be accompanied by their stat line. Sorry for the minor inconvenience, but things will be back to normal in a day or two.

I mentioned this yesterday but I think it bears repeating, I have decided to add not one, not two, but THREE NEW SECTIONS of players that will be tracked daily and will be included in the weekly year-to-date update. They will be known as The Helium Tank, The Tempurpedic's and The Pot Luck. Break out prospects and those not on the current sleeper list will go in The Helium Tank. The Tempurpedic's are the deep sleepers that will be kicking off their seasons in the upcoming weeks for either a domestic or international short season league. The Pot Luck will be where the community as a whole will have the chance to add another 25 names to the pot (pun totally intended) in addition to the 50 players in The Helium Tank and The Tempurpedic's.

In the upcoming days I will post an article where the top 25 players, as chosen by the amount of rec's the post with the player's name receives, This will come after The Helium Tank and Tempurpedic's have been announced to prevent players from ending up in multiple sections. Voting will take place for roughly three days and at the end of it all we will have The Pot Luck. I think this will be a fun way of finding more players to track and hopefully pick up on a rising star.

Now, for the goodies. I present to you, the Minor League Ball Gameday for Saturday, May 24.
