Josh Hader pitched good for gcl orioles today, 6 so and 0 walks in 3 plus innings. Seems to be doing ok so far this year.

I was at the game. Will have some more information later including a scout's thoughts on some players.

Rain delay for Norfolk. Tough luck for Arrieta, as he could very well be in line for a call up if Britton falters tonight. Also could be Steve Johnson.

Schoop was HBP in first inning of Bowie's game, and then was promptly picked of 1st. Growing pains.

Creede Simpson hitting .368/.442/.526 over past 10 games and has a 3 R HR tonight for Aberdeen
He's a jack of all trades utility type. I think he could be a nice little player down the road with some work. Not flashy but gets job done.

Machado constantly works long at bats that result in walks. Really advanced for his age. Worked 2 BB tonight so far. Probably saw at least 14 pitches alone.

L.J. Hoes Showing his nice compact swing to place a single past the SS. Really just love his approach, not trying to do too much.

I'm game hopping tonight on Milb.tv.

3 walks in 2.2ip so far for Arrieta and 1 er on a Felix Pie double (lol). Pie actually having a solid season at AAA this year.

I'm watching and He's been up and down all night. Can't find a rhythm with his curve. Fastball been sharp though.

Not sure, have the sound off and there is no gun on the feed. I'd assume its around 94 from looks of it.

Machado JUST missed driving a HR over the LF fence. Ball was just inside enough where he couldn't get bat head completely on it

Man...he has some pop in that bat.

Not the kind of start for Arrieta that one hoped for.

Just was nibbling the entire night, couldn't find the curve.
Walks killed him.

Gwinnett just was going with his fastballs and shooting them opposite field for easy singles. If anything, have to be impressed with the Braves approach.
Disappointing, let's see how he looks in 5 days.

It took Tillman a few starts to find a groove at the beginning of the year and he spent nearly all ST with Peterson. I just hope Arrieta works as hard as Tillman did and is back next year.
