Hello everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Wednesday, September 19th, 2018.
****Yesterday’s Triple-A championship game completed the 2018 minor league season, with the Memphis Redbirds of the Pacific Coast League defeating the Durham Bulls of the International League in a 14-4 stomp.
The focus on the prospect world will shift to rumors from fall instructional league camps, then the Arizona Fall League gets going in October. Gameday will continue at least through the end of the AFL.
****Scheduled rookie starters for today are Touki Toussaint for the Atlanta Braves, Jack Flaherty for the St. Louis Cardinals; Gabriel Moya for the Minnesota Twins; Spencer Turnbull for the Detroit Tigers; Diego Castillo for the Tampa Bay Rays; Yohander Mendez for the Texas Rangers; Heath Fillmyer for the Kansas City Royals; Jimmy Yacabonis for the Baltimore Orioles; and Walker Buehler for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
