New, 16 comments

Welcome to the diet Gameday! A's short stop Franklin Barreto went 4-5 and fell a triple short of the cycle with three steaks while right handed pitchers Alex Reyes and Kyle Zimmer made promising appearances on the rehab trail.

Hello folks, its time for another truncated version of the Gameday. With only two leagues in action today, the Gulf Coast and South Atlantic Leagues,  I decided to make today short and sweet. The focus of today for most will likely be on the recent release of John's Top 75 Mid-season Prospect List, and the MLB All-Star game.

As far as the action in the minors today, the two biggest names toeing the rubber are Giants RHP Samuel Coonrod, and Royals RHP Scott Blewett. Coonrod, a 2014 5th round pick, comes into the game with a 5-3 record and 2.78 ERA while Blewett has a 2-1 mark with a 2.82 ERA. Not too shabby for 2014 2nd round pick  who just turned 19 years old at the beginning of the year and is already shoving full season ball.
