Guys to watch:
2B Robert Refsnyder: The most outstanding player in the College World Series for Arizona last year, he has raked to start the year, earning a promotion from Charleston to Tampa, where he continues to hit. He played RF in college but the Yankees drafted him as a 2B. He can also play 3B because of his athleticism and strong arm. He could become one of the team’s best prospects if he keeps it up.
 
C J.R. Murphy: With Romine getting the call to the big club, there is an opening at Triple-A SWB at catcher. I doubt it’ll happen so soon, but if Romine is still with the big league club for a while and Murphy continues to hit, he could move on up.
OF Jake Cave: 6th round pick out of high school in the 2011 draft but missed the entire 2012 season. He’s gotten off to a strong start in Charleston.
 
RHP Rafael DePaula: Finally getting to pitch after visa trouble, he’s been monstrous to start the year: 39 strikeouts in 22.1 innings. He has some of the best stuff in the system. It just sucks that he lost some years. He’s only 22, and he would’ve been close by now if it weren’t for the visa and ID trouble.
 
RHP Jose Ramirez: Fresh off the DL, he went right at batters in his first appearance of the year, which was also his debut in Double-A. 6 Ks and only 1 BB and 2 hits in a 4 IP save.
 
3B David Adams and 2B Corban Joseph: Both have wielded hot bats so far this year. If the injuries continue, and they may have with Kevin Youkilis hurting with a bad back that also hurt him last year, there’s a possibility they could get the call.
 
 
Up-coming week:
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre has to make up four games they lost this weekend in the next two days. Two double headers in Charlotte. They then play a four game series in Gwinnett starting Thursday
 
Trenton wraps up its homestead with a 3 game series against New Hampshire. Then they play a 3 game series in Richmond.
Tampa wraps up its series vs St. Lucie, plays a home and home and home against Clearwater, and begins a series in Fort Myers.
 
Charleston plays one more vs. Kannapolis, plays three at Lakewood and then a few at Delmarva.
