Minor League Ball Gameday - Wednesday, September 2nd

New, 56 comments

Welcome to the Gameday! RHP Aaron Blair tossed 8 one-run innings with five strike outs and RHP Mike Wright went six scoreless as many top pitching prospects were knocked around. 2B Ryan Brett collected four hits including a triple, as did SS Trevor Story.

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.
