    Good to be back in Surprise in time to watch Brian Flynn start the intrasquad game striking out all 3 he faced, including Mondesi & Cuthbert

      Some good news:

      Brian Flynn got his first Major League win today for the Royals!

        Wichitans may get an opportunity to see former Shocker Jordan Cooper against the Wingnuts this season. He signed an independent contract with the T-Bones. He started the season with AAA in the Cleveland organization.

          If any Shocker baseball fan wants to be driven absolutely crazy, take a peek at John Hayes's stats so far in A ball this summer.

            Connecticut Tigers stats

            I don't want to diminish the accomplishments of a former Shocker, but some perspective is in order. Short-season A ball is one level above rookie, and is where a good number of newly drafted college players (other than those picked in the early rounds) start out. If he were doing that in full-season A ball, it would be impressive. His K/IP (13/21.1) and K/BB (13/7) rates are mediocre. There are eight pitchers on his team with better ERAs (having between 3.0 and 23.2 IP - four of them have 10+ IP).

            He teammate, Joe Navilhon (USC, 21st round pick, same age as John), has a 0.38 ERA in 23.2 IP, 26 K, 5 BB.

            All of that said, it's certainly not a bad start and something to build on. Perhaps with some maturity, new coaches and perspectives he'll put it together.

              Hayes's numbers ended up being roughly equivalent to Kyle Funkhouser's (though in less innings since Funk is a starter). Funkhouser was an All-American at Louisville and a first round draft pick.

                  Mystifying fact: On Saturday, weather permitting, Alec Bohm will play his 50th minor league game vs the Delmarva Shorebirds in Low A ball. Through 48 games he has yet to hit a single home run in 167 ABs. He and Vickers (who has many fewer ABs) are the last remaining pro Shockers without a dinger. You never know.

                    That is quite mystifying.

                  Addendum: Bohm got his dinger on Sunday. Game 51. Two-run shot. Raised his average to .310 on the year.

                      Looks like we got him going. 3 homers now, and a promotion.
