Baez's HR was nice, but what about the 2 dingers from Olt? The first was almost as deep as Baez's, to straightaway CF.

You're right. In my mind I had him as having already exhausted his prospect eligibility, probably because he was in the majors two years ago, but he hasn't. His two bombs should be on the list.

Drew Hutchison sneaks up and snags Stroman's ML rotation spot. If Romero bounces back and with Happ, is Stroman destined for the pen? Tough division to learn how to pitch at the ML Lvl.
