Welcome aboard, fellow baseball wonks, to the Saturday June 4th edition of Minor League Ball's Gameday.
Just below you can access the Gameday spreadsheet, updated for this weekend's games. If you don't know/are scared of what this link may hold, the first tab is a helpful primer of what's inside.
I'll continue to make a habit of harvesting some interesting reads from around the way and sharing in this space. The previous day's standout performers can also be found below.
- The annual Minor League Ball Community Mock is today, folks. The mock draft jamz will kick off at noon central time, and you can follow along and chime in on this thread for Round 1 picks. The threads for subsequent rounds should be posted at the bottom of the comments section when we get to that point.
- Fangraph's David Laurilia has a gift for coaxing an uncommon amount of inside knowledge from the pros, and his latest features Houston's Lance McCullers going deep on his arsenal and approach.
- Jim Callis released his latest mock draft on Friday
- Today's Knuckleball took a look at Rockies' High-A prospect Ryan Castellani, whose stuff has ticked up this year
- Also at FG, Carson's Fringe Five was published just after press time on Friday but is always worth a read
