Not sure that you can get his June splits easily, because he was in 2 leagues, but Luis Perdomo had a monster month in AA and AAA and deserves to be in the list. And he faced better competition than the others. (On the other hand he is 28)

All chosen are very good relievers, and all deserve to be on this list. I am hoping that Red Winger Caleb Thielbar was in the top 10 of the month. Still pretty amazing story, starting in Ft Myers and within two months, running up the league to AAA Rochester and striking out some pretty good hitters. He is walking a few more than normal in AAA, but he is also getting out of tough situations as well. Nice list though Seth!!!

The over-worked baseball player division. Every level the Twins are stressing bullpens. Probably not alone in this in the pro ranks.

I was watching Caleb Thiebar at Midway Stadium last year. It will be quit a story if he is eventually called up. Plays last year in Saint Paul and the next year is pitching at Target Field.

Thielbar and Perdomo were both certainly considered.
