Willie Cabrera continues to punish the Southern League.

Willie Cabrera continues to rake, extending his itting streak to 6 games going 10-21 with 4 doubles, a triple, and 7 RBI. He's probably as confused as anyone about why he's still in AA. Tyler Pastornicky may end up making the Yunel Escobar-Alex Gonzalez trade a great one for the Braves all by himself. The most impressive thing about how he's hitting in AA: he's only 20 years old.

Gerry Rodriguez has been back with the Pelicans for about a week after serving his 50 game PED suspension. He's fortunate to have kept his job, as his teammates who were suspended at the same time, Yoel Campusano and Armando Zazueta, were released. Jordan Kreke has been too old for every league he's played in to garner much attention as a prospect, and he's still too old for the Carolina League, but at least he's dominating like he should. He's a very solid player who does well at third and shortstop, so there is some upside there. Cory Rasmus gave up a few too many hits in his Pelicans debut and took the loss, but it wasn't that bad of a start.

David Rohm was really good with the GCL Braves, with a .320 average and .812 OPS in 75 at bats, and he's been better in 44 at bats with Danville, with a .386 average and .894 OPS. Evan Gattis is straight up hammering the ball for the D-Braves, with a .384 average and .948 OPS in 99 at bats. He excells with runners on, cranking out a .477 average and 1.224 OPS in 44 at bats in that situation.
GCL Braves 2, GCL Tigers 0
Matt Lipka not dominating the Tigers today was probably a newsworthy as anything else that happend. Daniel Falcon was overmatched at Danville but is undermatched in the GCL, with a .424 average, 1.033 OPS, and 6 steals in 8 games since his demotion. Dan Jurik missed a little over a month after getting blow up in his last start, to the tune of 5 earned runs in 4.2 innings, but came back strong today with 5 shutout innings. If you take out that last start his season line is a 0.75 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP. Of course, he's 23 playing in the GCL, so he should be dominating.
DSL Braves 1, DSL Angels 0
18 year old Juan Peguro hasn't had much success in his pro debut, but he had a perfect day today, reaching base all three times he came to the plate. Hopefully he can build on that. 19 year old Jean Carlos Gil has had a ton of success in his pro debut, with a 1.65 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 43.2 innings, and continued that today, shutting out the Angles over 6 innings.
