Minor League Ball Gameday - Wednesday, June 24th

New, 109 comments

Welcome to the Gameday! Phillies 3B Maikel Franco is on an absolute tear, driving in five runs for the second night in a row, the first time that's happened even against the Yankees. Astros SS Carlos Correa tried his best to match, plating four as he launched his 4th HR.

Hello everyone and welcome back to a full-strength version of the Gameday.A stomach bug and some technical issues have hampered my efforts through the beginning of the week, but all systems are go now.

Before we get to the Gameday, I'd like to take a few seconds to thank Matt Garrioch for all the hard work he put in as our draft guru the last few years. I know the work he put in for this year's draft was incredible. In baseball terms, it was the equivalent of a 12 inning complete game with 190 pitches.

He's moving on to other things and we have one of our own stepping in to fill Matt's role as our go-to guy for MLB Draft and amateur baseball info, Michael Cook (cookiedabookie). You can read Michael's introduction piece here.

We also have seen the debut of a three new writers to the Minor League Ball team in the last few days - Quinn Barry, John Moore, and Ezra Jones. Make sure you check out Quinn's first piece about Casey Meisner, John's introduction and a profile of Astros hurler Brock Dykxhoorn, and Ezra's intro and profile of Blue Jays southpaw Matt Boyd.

Now for the goodies - Click the link below for the Gameday spreadsheet, which will open in a separate tab in your browser. Scroll down for the schedule for today's slate of games, the Duel's of the Day, and our running injury list.

You can also get daily updates on draft signings by checking out my personal draft tracker. Every pick from the first five rounds are tracked as well as any picks from rounds six through ten that sign for $100K over or under the slot recommendation.

We had a slew of All-Star games take place yesterday with the AA Southern, Low A South Atlantic, and Low A Midwest Leagues all hosting their mid-season festivities. The Northern squads took home the title in both the Southern and South Atlantic Leagues while the East team won the Midwest League contest. The Carolina and California Leagues squared off against each other with the California League winning in impressive fashion.
