Who at this point has a better chance at a September call-up, Aaron Hicks or Joe Benson?

I'd still say Benson, but Hicks is playing great, and so is Arcia.

Romy Jimenez looks like a badass! I'm excited to see him progress through the system. Think he'll be sent to Beloit by year end?

I doubt it. Always have to be careful with Appy League numbers, and especially just on month of Appy League numbers. Also, he's average age-wise for the league, and after missing so much time last year, he just needs to play.

Did Jimenez used to be "Trinidad"? I see a discrepancy between the line score and box score all the time on the milb scoreboard.

Might as well ask it here. Seth, any chance that Adonis Pacheco joins the GCL club this year?

Romy Jimenez = Romy Trinidad. Not sure why MiLB still uses Trinidad.

Ok. In the line score (say if he homers) it says "Trinidad." The box score, however, is always correct.

Yes, and like you said, it's strange to see box scores that use them interchangeably. You'll see the box score show that Jimenez went 3-4, then down below, it'll say 2B - Trinidad (8), HR - Trinidad (4)...

Hard to get too excited about a guy in his third season in the DSL that just turned 21. So, I would say No. I'd guess that he would come to spring training next year and get an opportunity to play in Beloit... If he can't make that team (which he likely wouldn't), he could get released. Or, he could play in EST until the draft and maybe get an opportunity to play in E-Town, but more likely get released at that time.
