Prospect Watch: It was Cody Decker who homered last night to give the T-Pads a win, tonight it was "brother" Jaff to give the T-Pads a win. While many of us might have scratched our heads when he was called up, he did well in his few at bats with the club and has continued on the right track since being back in Tucson. Over his last two weeks Jaff is hitting a stunning .484/.579/.645with seven walks and six strikeouts in 38 plate appearances.

. Western Michigan WhiteCaps 7 – Fort Wayne TinCaps 5
Prospect Watch: Just when we think our prospects are finally getting healthy another injury happens. During the fourth inning of today's game, Adys Portillo reinjured his surgically repaired shoulder and had to leave the game. Prior to the injury, Portillo looked like his old self. He was sitting 94-96 with his fastball, and showed good movement with all his pitches. Unfortunately, that might not matter as he might be out for the remainder of the year. No report yet on the severity of the injury.
For further reading on the TinCaps' please see the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette.
Propsect Watch: Reyes started off the year in Fort Wayne but despite a 3-1 record injuries and a 7.07 ERA sent him back down. Still the 6'5" Dominican has an abundance of talent and maybe this year's version of Justin Hancock.
AZL Royals 5 – AZL Padres 4 (10 innings)
Prospect Watch: Oramas, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, was one of the better Padres'pitching prospects. It was his second start and so far in seven innnings he has only allowed one run.
