It's good to see Berrios have a bounce back game. I have to imagine that he's getting tired. He's already thrown more than twice as many innings as he threw last year. I have to believe that it's tougher for young pitchers to adjust to full season ball than it is for hitters. I have no idea how many innings he threw in a year during high school, but if it's anything like Kohl Stewart, it wasn't a lot.

Any word on the extent of his struggles? 7 K's in 41 ABs (~17%)-- has he just been unlucky? Over-matched? Combination?
*I'm really resisting the urge to say something along the lines of, "This really 'Will Hurt' his development as a legitimate prospect"...

I'm hoping Rosario is back in action soon, I'm looking forward to seeing him and Sano in Reading this weekend.

Sad to hear that. He's a good guy, and he throws hard. Struggled with some injury and with throwing strikes on occasion, but generally, I thought he had a chance.
Me too. He was moved to the bullpen pretty quick after some success as a starter in the low minors. He must have really struggleled throwing anything but a FB.

The Kernels just keep on rolling. Will some of the Top College draftees move up to CR as they reach playoff time - If E'Town is struggling?
I think there is a high probability that happens. I would think it has more to do with the innings some arms are accumulating. The Twins don't like their pitchers taking huge leaps in IP. And a lot of low level starters are a year removed from being college relievers. Guys like Peterson, Bixler and even Eades and Slegers could find themselves in Cedar Rapids by the end of the season.

Is it just me, or has Buxton been putting up a lot of 0-fer's recently? The BA is starting to creep downwards in addition to quite a few strikeouts adding up. Is it just a tough stretch or have opposing pitchers found a weakness?
Keep in mind this is his first full year with lots of extra attention and commitments. He could be suffering from some fatigue.

Just a good reminder of how tough the game is and how everyone is going to meet the occasional struggles. The good ones come back. See Sano, Miguel.
