Young'uns of the Day: May 6

Round Rock
So did Jose Capellan just lose the will to live when he didn't make the rotation? Because I don't know if he noticed, but the rotation isn't exactly set right now. Capellan gave up 8H/4ER in 5IP last night in a 7-3 loss to New Orleans. YotD for The Rock goes to Lou Santangelo, 2x4 with two 2Bs. The Express were 1x12 with RISP.

Corpus Christi
Douglas Arguello threw a complete game 7H/1ER, 6K:0BB performance last night as Corpus beat Midland (do they play anybody else? It's like Siena/Iona down there...) 4-1. Drew Locke and catcher Jonathan Fixler each hit homers (Fixler's a 3-run shot) to account for all Corpus' runs.

Lexington
Kyle Greenwalt had a rare rough outing, giving up 4ER in 6IP as Lexington lost to Rome 4-2. Brandon Barnes went 2x4 with a triple to earn YotD honors.

Lancaster
The JetHawks beat the piss out of Lake Elsinore, getting 25 hits and 17 runs in a 17-4 whoopin. Lots of candidates for YotD here, but it goes to Jonathan Gaston, who went 5x5 with 3HR and 7RBI. Chia Jen-Lo threw three scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 2.00.

Between Lancaster and Lexigton, Houston has some serious talent starting to show from the past two drafts. Thank god for that, I'll be ready to replace Miggy, AzzMat, Hampy, Ortiz, Geary, Pudge, Erstad, OldBro and Moelher within 18 months.

I think everyone is ready for this team to get younger. Injuries are running rampant right now.

Excellent point, from both o'you's. We've seen players make the jump from Double-A to the Bigs on a number of occasions. Problem is, if those guys are in Lancaster or Lexington, we could be looking at another stop-gap season until 2011 comes along and those guys are ready to produce.
