BA reported that Eric Patterson was promoted to AA West Tenn. Not sure why this late as it seems strange. I can only think it's to help with a playoff run. At this rate he should pass Corey on the organziation depth chart by March '06.
1st rounder Marc Pawalek finished a strong campaign despite an 0-3 record. He threw 43 innings with only 25 hits against 21 BB's with 56 K's. Very solid peripheral numbers.
And 2nd rounder Donald Veal finished up in fine fashion thorwing 4 scoreless innings with 7 K's. His fastball sat at 92-94 and topped out at 97 in this game. For the short-season in Boise, Veal threw 19 innings with 15 hits. He walked 10 and struck out 20.
That's 2 nice arms and a top of the order guy to keep our eyes on in the next few years.
