Phil Bickford recently got promoted to Class A Advanced San Jose and he did not disappoint in his debut. Phil struck out 13 batters in six innings. Twelve of those strikeouts were swinging. History has shown that the Giants know pitching. Phil looks to be up next. Load up before its too late.

Clint Frazier is a former Baseball America High School player of the year and is putting together a nice season at AA Akron. He is currently one of the youngest players at the level and some say there is a chance you might see him in the big leagues this season. Clint has impressive power and bat speed that you can't teach and will play in games. He also possesses an above average arm fit for center field or right field.
What I like about Clint is that he has made adjustments to his swing and approach and has cut down on his strikeouts. There is still work to be done but the Cleveland Indians have a good track record of developing professional hitters in their system. Clint has the tools to become a dynamic outfielder in the MLB and I expect him to be a big asset to the club. Frazier and Bradley Zimmer in the same outfield could be something special in the years to come in Cleveland.

Austin Meadows has been on fire since coming back from injury. He currently has a 17 game hitting streak and his extra base hits have increased. It seems that he is finally starting to reach his power potential. Just another reason why it pays to be patient.
