Good afternoon everybody and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Saturday, April 7th, 2018.
****Probable starters of interest include New York Yankees prospect Dillon Tate starting for Double-A Trenton; Milwaukee Brewers prospect Nathan Kirby taking on Chicago White Sox prospect Dylan Cease in the High-A Carolina League contest between Carolina and Winston-Salem; and a duel between promising Triple-A lefties in Cardinals prospect Austin Gomber and Rangers prospect Yohander Mendez in the Memphis/Round Rock PCL match.
****Nathan Kirby will be interesting to track. He was Milwaukee’s compensation round pick in 2015 from the University of Virginia but injuries have limited him to just 12.2 innings in pro ball so far.
****Major League probable pitchers and the schedule are here. The only rookie pitcher expected to start a game is Miami Marlins southpaw Dillon Peters.
