Excellent!  Congrats - it's a great opportunity for him.  Any chance they give him a look at CF?

In Bowie? It's possible. DJ Stewart is in left and Jay Gonzalez usually is in right, same with Rosa and Nathans when they are out there.

Surprise promotion considering this guy was in Aberdeen a year ago and has only had about 300 total at bats in A ball. 

He is turning 22 in a week and was .316. 367. 434 .800 in Frederick.  Plate discipline seems pretty good 10 walks to 22 K's.  That's twice as many as Ryan Mountcastle and Austin Hays.  Hopefully the power will come.  Only hit two in Frederick.  

I think he has to be considered inside the top ten at this point.

A slight surprise. Bowie needed an outfielder. If be surprised if he sticks there for any longer than it takes for Mullins and/or Davis to heal up.

Good player though. Good arm and speed.

Davis is an organizational guy and doesn't command every day at bats.  You typically don't promote your real prospects unless you plan on having them stay there.  I wouldn't expect him to be sent back to Frederick unless he really under performs.

This is true, but they were moving guys up and down last year due to injury around this time too for a few weeks at a time. Stewart in left, Mullins in center, Gassaway in right?

I can't remember the last time we had three legit prospects in one OF together.  Let alone AA.  Hays isn't too far away either.  Add Harvey to the system plus 4 top 100 draft picks and our system is starting to look pretty good.

I like that Hays appeared to take it well that Gassaway got the promotion rather than him.  Hays goes right out and hits a homer and a double.  (I'm not saying Hays should be upset - he shouldn't - but I can see how it might bother someone in that position.)

Gassaway has been in th system for longer. Not saying it's the deciding factor in this one, but he does have "senority."

On the bright side, it's a great thing no matter which one got promoted. Hope they both do well.

That would be my thoughts though he'll probably also play LF at first since he's used to playing there. Good to see Gassaway get a chance. I'd like to see a little more power from him and I want to see how he handles AA offspeed pitches. Overall though, he's had a nice year.

I'm just glad we have actual hitting prospects in the upper levels of the org. 

Mancini- MLB

Sisco- AAA

Mullins-AA (DL)

Stewart-AA

Gassaway- AA

Not even getting greedy with Marin and Wynns.  Plus Mountcastle and Hays should be in Bowie at some point.  Must be a fun season for Bowie's fans.

Oh, it is!

Gassaway got his first rbi (on a ground out) and first bit hit (single) today.

It's not possible that Hays didn't take it well but still went right out and hit a homer and a double?:noidea:
