- OF Jared Mitchell has repaid our skepticism about his aggressive assignment to Birmingham by continuing his hot hitting from spring training. He's batting a stellar .300/.417/.533. Of course, as you might expect, that's fueled by a BABIP of well above .400. While Mitchell is the type to have an above average BABIP, it won't be that above average. He also hasn't addressed the strikeout issue, as noted by director of player development Nick Capra. But, after the last couple years, we'll take any signs of prospect life.
On a personal note, I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to the Daily Herald's Scot Gregor.
