Todd Glaesmann has found new life since "un-retiring" late last year. He was assigned probably a level lower than he should, perhaps to gauge his true renewed interest in baseball, but there's no arguing he's in an early groove to start the season and might find himself in Mobile or Reno before long. Through six games he's hitting .417 with 4 home runs and 9 RBI. Being he's already 24 my guess is he may see Reno next rather than Mobile.
3 Stars: Todd Glaesmann, Visalia 3 for 6, 3 R, 2 DBL, 1 HR (4), 3 RBI
2 Stars: Jared Miller, Kane County 6 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 2 R (1 ER), W (1-1)
1 Star: Tyler Baker, Visalia 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 DBL, 1 HR, 3 RBI
0 Stars: Robbie Ray, Reno 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 BB, 5 K, 3 ER, L(0-1)
AAA: Reno 2 @ El Paso 4. Robbie Ray couldn't get out of the 3rd inning allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks and got the hook after just 39 pitches. The bullpen pitched 5+ innings of one-run relief but it wasn't good enough as the offense only managed 2 tallies on 5 hits.
AA: Mobile - Rained Out.
A+: Visalia 15 San Jose 5. The Rawhide got behind big early when starter Zack Godfrey allowed 4 runs in the first inning. But it really didn;t matter as the offense exploded from the 3rd inning on with 15 runs on 15 hits led by another big day from Todd Glaesmann. Godfrey did well to settle down after the rough first with 4 subsequent shutout innings. Domingo Leyba continued his warm start with a 3-hit game including a triple, 2 RBI and a stolen base. Tyler Baker had 3 hits which included his first home run, a 2-run blast in the 8th.
A: Kane County 5 Clinton 2. Starter Jared Miller was unhittable, giving up just one base hit, a solo home run as the Cougars won their third staright after dropping their first four. Chuck Taylor led the offense with 3 hits and 2 RBI while Colin Bray had 2 hits, a walk and scored twice.
