Good morning. Here’s the rundown:
LAST NIGHT: Project Birmingham opened with a bang, with five A-ball prospects delivering multiple hits in their Double-A debut in the Barons’ 11-7 victory over Mississippi.
ELSEWHERE ON THE FARM: Charlotte beats up Louisville, a depleted Winston-Salem team comes up short against Asheville, but Kannapolis is buoyed by recently drafted bats.
IN THE SHOW: The White Sox dropped the series opener in Baltimore despite spotting Dylan Cease an early lead.
TONIGHT: We’ll see how the Barons juggle a now-stacked lineup, and Lucas Giolito tries to pick up Cease for once.
AROUND THE LEAGUE: The Angels are for sale, injuries and surgeries abound, the Guardians win, and the Twins lose (with another unusual rule call going against them).
