Games of July 9th
Dylan Carlson is still treading water as an 18 year old in full season ball. I'll take it for right now...Peoria has run into a bit of the same issue I described above with Palm Beach, but they do have a couple of interesting names like Plummer, Yepez and now now Robertson...Yeison Meidna has 36 strikouts through 20.1 IP.
Mike O'Reilly just missed his first Maddux.The Peoria starter needed 101 pitches to throw a complete game shutout against Cedar Rapids. His raw strikeout total isn't gaudy, but he's striking out over 27% of the batters he faces and walking only 3%, and his 1.56 ERA is second in the Midwest League.
