    And credit to Boxcar for explaining how to use imgur and the [img] command so everything isn't a shrunken clusterfuck

    Don't tell me he's injured again.

    I'll probably use some of its player tracker info once there's enough of a sample size to give season stats for select players

    Minor detail. Spank that's a great website and John - you're also my hero for doing this summary. I love following the minor league teams!

    Found this nugget on SBNation about Diaz last night:

    "Yennsy Diaz was the star of the evening, throwing 5.2 shutout innings with 10 strikeouts. He faced just two batters over the minimum, a hit batman in the third and a double on the first pitch of the sixth inning to spoil the no hitter. That was basically the only hard hit ball he yielded, though there were only seven non-bunted balls put in play.

    Diaz was sitting 92-95 MPH with his fastball, touching 96 once, pretty close to his top shelf velo considering it was the first game for the year and the game time temperature below 5C. Funny enough, the first five strikeouts were all looking on fastball, and the last five strikeouts were all swinging. The dominance showed in the incredible 19 whiffs Diaz piled up on just 44 swings (57% contact rate) and just 81 pitches. He did have to labour a little harder towards the end, running a bunch of deep counts."

    As King mentioned, he did all that while throwing only fastballs.
