Well Ash, I just found the answer to my question about Wes Musick. The Corpus Christi website indicated that he was placed on the inactive list effective 5/19. Today the OKC website showed him being promoted to AAA OKC effective 5/21. He started for the Redhawks tonight....went 6 innings and gave up 2 runs on 6 hits.
He started the season at Lancaster where he had an ERA around 2.50 after 6 starts.....then was promoted to AA Corpus on 5/5. He pitched 12 innings at Corpus and gave up 4 runs. Now, 16 days later, he's at AAA. Not a bad couple of months for the guy. He's a good kid. He's overcome a lot. It's good to see him having a good year.

Wallace is hitting .390 with a 1.024 OPS over his last ten games, with three bombs. His OPS overall of .723 isn't impressive, but considering where he was, it's a big improvement. He's hitting .293/.303/.507 on the month. Glad to see the power, but he's drawn four walks all year, so he still has some things to work on. Paredes has a 1.101 OPS over his ten last games, and is hitting .329/.341/.466 overall with three HR, 14 total XBH and 12 steals in 15 attempts. .287/.342/.343 is Shuck's overall line.
Oberholtzer's start was great, awesome to see him pitching so well and missing some bats too. And Chapman wasn't what you would call great, but after his last few outings, you have to almost consider this one a success. Villar is hitting .333/.395/.359 over his last ten games. He's doing better, but there's still a lack of walks, too many strikeouts, and he hasn't hit a homer yet...
Nash and Springer punchout out a combined five times tonight, bleh. .300/.341/.600 for Santana over his last ten games. Doran had only allowed two runs through six innings, but in the seventh inning, he allowed three baserunners before being pulled, and Robinson came in and allowed four consecutive hits to effectively torpedo his and Doran's lines. So, just to give some context. Things can go south in a hurry in the California league. Seven punchouts is nice to see though; 6.8 K/9 is decent enough for a guy who gets a ton of GBs, and even with the three walks tonight his BB/9 sits at 2.5.
DeShields now as 28 steals and has been caught just once. 96.7% success rate. He's only hitting .216 in his last ten games, but he's walked ten times during that stretch so he has a .383 OBP. Man, you get the feeling that if this guy just hits for a league-average batting average, he could end up posting a huge OBP and being one of the best, if not the best, basestealer/baserunners in the league some day. And hey, Dufek didn't <suck utterly for once, that's...progress.
Thought I would mention that Domingo Santana made BA's prospect hotsheet last week: www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/prospect-hot-sheet/2012/2613423.html
"When you're a 6-foot-5 righthanded hitter, there's bound to be some length to your swing, and that's certainly the case with Santana. He's a high-risk guy because of the strikeout rate, but put a player with his raw power in hitter-friendly Lancaster as his home park is bound to go on tears like this week. With a .254/.315/.500 flash line on the year, Santana is showing he can hit the ball a long way, but the 38 strikeouts in 124 plate appearances mean the red flags are waving."
I have to believe Springer will be on this week's hotsheet.
"I have to believe Springer will be on this week's hotsheet."
The hot sheet only covers how well a prospect performs during a given week, not their season to date. Springer will need to keep up his good week to make the list.
"I think another month if that long and its time to move Castro up to AA.. Maybe its because I want to drive over to Frisco and see him play!"
...you're a big fan of Erik Castro? I mean, he's having a nice season and all, but that one just seems a little random...

Clemens was pretty mediocre, thought the BB and K numbers continue to look solid. Nice to see yet another bomb from Wallace. Paredes continues his hot streak as well.
Adam Bailey has been raking recently, but then again, LH hitters in Lancaster...Santana and Springer keep rolling as well. Springer has ten bombs in 41 games; 39 HR pace for 162 games. Yeah, he has power. FYI, Lancaster is off tomorrow night.
Tropeano with the bounce-back start. 10.8 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 for him, 5.7 K/BB. DeShields is now 29-for-30 in SB attempts.
