This was actually Andrew Albers' second start in his return.

Adam Walker's 13 HR is great, but he's not close to the pace that Eddie Rosario and Miguel Sano were on last year. That was just crazy. The other thing to note about Walker is his BB:K rate.

Finally, it bugged me when Twins fans immediately called Pedro Hernandez a bad prospect, a "soft-tossing lefty." So is Scott Diamond. Let's at least give him the benefit of the doubt for a little while.

Albers made a start earlier this month, but he was just listed as activated yesterday.

The Rock Cats lost.
Oswaldo Arcia had the day off.
Coincidence? I'll let you be the judge . . .

Hernandez has had two straight good starts after being bombed his first start for the Red Wings. I see he is only 5'10", but fandom should wait and see before deeming him a bullpen arm or nonprospect.
