I'd wait before freaking out. A+ to AA is supposed to be the most difficult jump and he did miss a lot of time before coming back last year.  Let's see what his stuff looks like in August.


Fort Myers to Chattanooga is also a transition from an extreme pitchers' park to an extreme hitters' park. Combined with the level change, that is fairly tough for a pitcher. Even if they pitch well their numbers won't be as pretty, given the environment.

If you ain't got no haters, you ain't poppin'.

Thorpe threw 49 pitches in 4.0 innings Friday. Gave up 3 hits, 1 walk and a solo home run. Not bad for first time out in two years.
