Notable pitching performances, including a long-awaited pro debut

Danny Hayes hit another grand slam.

All four full-season affiliates won on Wednesday, which is a novel development. Buried in there is the return of Blake Hickman. The White Sox selected the Chicago native and ACE product out of the University of Iowa in the seventh round in 2015, but the start of his pro career was delayed by Tommy John surgery shortly after the draft. He missed the entirety of the 2016 season and used the time to finish his degree.

He started for Kannapolis and couldn’t have asked for much more, throwing six innings of one-run ball against Hickory.
