Memphis Hitting

  • Blake Drake (CF) – 2 for 4, R, 3B, K
  • Anthony Garcia (LF) – 1 for 3, R, 2B, BB, K: Could this be the year we see Garcia?  I initially thought it wouldn’t happen this year, but when you look at the Cardinals OF depth, it’s a real possibility.  Randal Grichuk, Dexter Fowler, and Tommy Pham all have had injuries in recent seasons and Jose Martinez is still a question mark in the long term.

  • Danny Diekroeger (3B) – 1 for 2, R, 2B: He’s one of those players who I really like, but doesn’t have the tools to be a top prospects.  He’s never going to be an All Star at the MLB level, but he could easily sneak into a utility role there.

Palm Beach loses to Potomac, 12-3
