Southern League notebook

More praise for Mike Minor, this time coming from Tom Glavine, another "soft tossing" lefty who managed to stick in the bigs and do alright for himself. Frank Wren is also pretty impressed, apparently: "Take away about six pitches all year and he's been nearly perfect. He could come very fast." The article also confirms that he's hitting 94-95 this year on the gun.

Columbus' Marte Named IL Player of the Week

Andy Marte, for whom we managed to somehow snag Edgar Renteria from the Red Sox (who turned into Jair Jurrjens and Gorkys Hernandez, part of the package for McLouth), just won the IL PoW award for the week for the second week in a row. He's actually the first player to do so since '06 (Cole Hamels), and with a .320/.362/.541 line plus 11 homers and 46 RBIs to boot through 67 games, he's having his best season since we traded him (and maybe ever.) He's been a disappointment thus far, but maybe he'll turn out to be something after all.
