Once again, there will be no recap of the Pirates game. I got home late from work and there is no way I'm staying awake long enough to get one of those in. I should be able to get back to it starting Wednesday.
The Indianapolis Indians, Altoona Curve, Bradenton Marauders, State College Spikes, and GCL Pirates each had the day off. It was a scheduled off day for all five teams. Since all those teams had the day off, I'll do something I don't usually do and wrap up the games for the Dominican Summer League teams. It's kind of difficult to tell who the real prospects are on those teams. But guys do make it. Starling Marte started out down there. Usually the best way to tell who the prospects are is to look at their age and what their signing bonus was.
