    Thinking Mike's eye issues are better...

    Round Rock's Mike Olt hit his 2nd HR of the night (and the inning!), making 7 on the season so far. #Rangers

    YES gave a shout out to LJ's hot start whenever his dad was at bat at Old Timer's Day yesterday.

    George Springer is the Texas League MVP and only played 73 games there.

    Looks like Barnes threw a shutout in his first AAA start. Impressive!

    Olt is there now (hoping he gets the opening day start today). Springer will be up in May/June. But the earliest Barnes will see the majors is expanded rosters in September (especially given his injury issues right now). But I don't think there is any way Ahmed sees the majors this year. Between Ahmed's performance lately and the fact that the DBacks have 2 young SS already not getting enough reps...Ahmeds MLB chances are slim in '14.

    With the log jam of young talented players the Cubs have in their minor league system hopefully Mike does not get forgotten. Thought maybe they might try to trade him at deadline. Maybe they couldn't and that would not be a good thing. Hopefully he keeps up the good work and gets a shot again real soon.
