Fulmer picked up right where he left off:

5IP, 6BB, 5Ks, only 1 ER.

Pulled off a Danny Wright.

Barons with a big ninth inning rally to take lead; Eloy with a grand slam after a double by Fisher, single by Brett, walk by Basto, bunt single by Polo, sac fly by Mendick, walk by Collins. One out.

Rutherford and Adolfo both slumping. Rutherford is hitting .200 and Adolfo .214 over their last 10 games. Their averages were around .330 for a while and now it's dropped below .300 for both players.

This was inevitable. All about how they bounce back.

Really excited about Stephen's and Kopech coming up soon. I think they can add some value to the club.

Blake Battenfield tossing another gem for Kannapolis. Statistically the best pitcher in the organization right now.

Yep, Stephens had another good outing for Charlotte last night. In his 3 starts since getting promoted he's looked good in each outing and sports a 2.45 ERA.

Impressive. I'd image he'll get a promotion to W-S soon.

Here are the stats for the Kannapolis rotation:

Blake Battenfield: 1.57 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, 56:10 K:BB
Lincoln Henzman: 2.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 39:5 K:BB
John Parke: 3.02 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 45:9 K:BB
Parker Rigler: 3.15 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 41:22 K:BB
Kade McClure: 3.02 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, 42:14 K:BB

That's pretty much the extent of my research skills. What can anybody say about these guys? Are any of them legit prospects? All I here about the entire Kannapolis team is that they're all old for their level, but these numbers speak for themselves.

Yes, they're legit prospects. Henzman is the team's 26th-ranked prospect according to MLB Pipeline. You can read the comments at http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2018?list=cws but the gist is "Henzman has the three-pitch mix to make it in the rotation...If he doesn't make it as a starter, he could advance quickly as a reliever."

McClure was his teammate at Louisville and was drafted two rounds later (6th round to Henzman's 4th). His ceiling might be a little lower, and he is probably just outside our top 30.

Battenfield came out of nowhere; he was the 17th round pick. But the way he's been pitching, he'll be in everyone's next top-30 list.

Parke (21st round) and Rigler (31st) are lefties. I like Parke quite a bit even though he was terrible in college. I am less sold on Rigler, but lefties will get their chances.

Jimenez, Collins, and Polo all went 2 for 4 today for the Barons. Jimenez and Collins each had a walk to go along with that. Also, Jimenez had a double, Collins had 2 doubles, and Polo had a HR.

Clarkin finally has a decent outing after 6 straight starts were he gave up at least 4 runs. Hamilton went 1.1 innings: 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K

Zack Collins OBP is .451.

That’s good, right?

I've always wanted to know, what's the difference between extended spring training and just playing in the minors?

Not sold on Rutherford at all. I get the age excuse but that'll only last so long. Shows no signs of any pop. Cashman isn't stupid, he knew what he was giving up.

Aren’t the “minors” actual organized leagues with affiliated teams playing for titles, and stats recorded?

Extended spring training, it seems to me, is more like spring training “B” games, plus practice and drills.
