Thursday Pebble Report

New, comments

The signing phase of the draft begins now, already the Rocky Mountain News is reporting the Rox are close to signing their second round choice, David Christensen, and with this news from Birmingham-Southern I think it's likely that eighth round pick Brandon Hynick will sign a little more quickly as well.

Colorado Springs: The PCL had the day off.

Tulsa: The Drillers lost five to four in extra innings to the Arkansas Travellers. The game started well, with Troy Tulowitzki and Joe Gaetti both homering in the first inning, but after that the Angels affiliate crept back and eventually won off Driller reliever Josh Newman. Juan Morillo only allowed four hits in five and two thirds, but he also walked five  and allowed four runs to go along with his seven K's.

Modesto: Justin Nelson got the only hit off of Giants prospect Nick Pereira in a three to nothing loss. Normally, I'd point out this performance as a warning of a divisional foe getting stronger, but since it's the Giants, Pereira will probably be traded for a fourth outfielder or backup catcher long before we see him. Besides Pereira's a little old for A ball at 23, so it's only a yellow light, not a flashing red one. Samuel Deduno started for the Nuts and pitched a decent game, giving up six hits and three runs in six innings with two walks and five K's.

Asheville EY Jr stole his forty-fourth base, Chris Nelson hit his sixteenth double, but the Tourists lost seven to four as Zach Simons took a pounding in three and a third innings. He allowed all seven runs on seven hits (three HR's) and three walks. He K'd three but was otherwise ineffective.
