Minor League Ball Gameday - Saturday, August 29th

New, 86 comments

Welcome to the Gameday! RHP Kyle Zimmer continues to get stretched out, throwing five two-hit frames with six punchies. 1B AJ Reed cracked four base knocks with a double and a homer while a pair of 2015 first rounders collected four hits as well, SS Alex Bregman and OF Trent Clark.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Gameday. John's annual pre-season prospect reviews have now come to a close, and you can find each team below. Just as a reminder, these are not new rankings. These are the pre-season prospect rankings but with comments from John on their 2015 performances. I will be leaving these here at the top of the Gameday for the next week or so before moving them to the Library section.
