Couple announcements about the Etwins roster. Supp picks from last year Travis Harrison and Hudson Boyd will both play in Elizabethton. Several players from this year's draft will also join the Etwins. That includes 2nd rounders mason Melotakis and JT Chargois, 4th round pick Zach Jones and a few others.
The Etwins start on Tuesday while the GCL starts tomorrow.
Rochester won 7-4.Matt Carson(.296) went 3-4 with 2 HR's(4).
New Britain lost 4-3.Nate Hanson(.279) went 2-4 with a HR(1).James Beresford(.286) went 2-4.
Beloit lost 6-2.Matt Summers(6-4, 4.09) gave up 4 runs on 8 hits including 2 HR's over 7.1 innings.Miguel Sano(.237) went 0-4 with 4 strike outs. He has been a disaster(for the most part) lately.
GCL Twins begin play in about 20 minutes. Starting for the Twins will be Kuo Hua Lo. He was signed out of Taiwan a little over a year ago. This will be his pro debut. I wouldn't be surprised if Buxton leads off.
Edit: Buxton not even in the starting lineup. hmmm.......
Jim Rantz says it will probably be a few days before Buxton plays.
Hudson Boyd is scheduled to start for the Etwins tomorrow.

Just read something from KLAW that blew my mind. Billy Hamilton, playing in high A for the Reds organization, has stolen 80 bases this season! He'll be in the futures game.
He also mentions Sano as one of the players who should be in the futures game. But, he's glad he will get to see Arcia(KLAW is pretty high on Arcia).

Etown lost 6-5.Travis Harrison got his 1st pro hit and it was the long variety. He also commited 2 errors at 3rd.
Byron Buxton made his pro debut with the GC Twins today. He went 0-4. He flew out to CF twice, flew out to LF and struck out looking.
Should have traded Buxton while his stock was still high.
Now he is pretty much untradeable. Thanks for nothing Terry Ryan.
