Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Wednesday, March 29th. Let’s get down to business.

****MLB Spring Training Scoreboard

****Los Angeles Dodgers first base prospect Cody Bellinger hasn’t had a great spring, hitting just .185 in 54 at-bats, but he did hit a home run in yesterday’s 9-3 Dodgers loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

****The same game saw Walker Buehler pitch for the Dodgers, touched for three runs in an inning of work due to two hits and two walks.

****Yulieski Gurriel picked up two hits for the Houston Astros in their 7-3 victory over the Miami Marlins, bringing his average to .352 in 54 at-bats.

****At Beyond the Boxscore, Ryan Romano points out some potential red flags in Freddie Freeman’s swinging strike profile. Could this presage a loss of production?

****At Twinkie Town, Andrew Bryzgornia makes the case that J.T. Chargois should have made the Opening Day roster for the Twins.

****MLB Daily Dish is running a Front Office Confidence Survey. How confident are you in the skills of your favorite team’s GM?

****At The Hardball Times, Shane Tourtellotte asks: do umpire’s ejection rates change over time as they gain experience?
