Young'uns of the Day: May 7

Round Rock
Matt Kata went 1x3 with an HBP and 2RBI in a 6-5 loss to New Orleans.

Corpus Christi
The Hooks gave it right back, losing 14-2 to Midland. That said, Collin DeLome hit his 9th HR of the season.

Jordan Lyles threw a 7IP, 7H/1ER, 8K:0BB performance in a 1-0 loss to Rome. The lone run was a solo shot in the 4th inning.

Jonathan Gaston makes his second straight appearance, going 3x3 with a double, walk, and RBI in a 14-5 loss to Lake Elsinore. Gaston now has 11 hits in his last 19 ABs (including eight consecutive hits) and has 4HR, 10RBI, and 8 runs scored in his last three games.

Where did Gaston come from? He was not an Astros draft pick was he?

Stay tuned, I'm at lunch and working on a little something...

Was Gaston the other kid from Arizona? I can't remember... I just remember watching Steele and another outfielder for them in the CWS after being drafted by the Astros and both were impressive.

Also... should you really be calling it a "Young'un" of the day if the player isn't young? I wouldn't exactly call Matt Kata young. Maybe a Minor Leaguer of the Day? Just a thought I was having... (I'm highly OCD btw)

Indeed - Gaston is from UA. And it's a valid point about the YotD moniker. I'll take a gander at it. It's also not as clever as I had hoped. Anybody have any thoughts as to what we can call it?
