Triple A Newsbeat

Triple-A Game between Lehigh Valley, Rochester features 15 homers

Saturday afternoon’s Triple-A game between the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) and Rochester Red Wings (Twins) set or matched all kinds of franchise records. The two squads combined to score 38 runs, racking up 43 hits and eight walks. 15 of those 43 hits were home runs. The IronPigs outlasted the Red Wings 20-18 in 10 innings.

And there are people who think power hasn’t been cheapened in the contemporary game!

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. reportedly called up to Triple-A

The top prospect in baseball just took another step closer to seeing a major-league field, according to a report from MLB Pipeline.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had his spring training cut short this March after an oblique strain forced him to miss more than half the month’s worth of games. He spent the rest of the spring in minor-league camp rehabbing the injury, and made a short four-game appearance with the high-A Dunedin Blue Jays once the season started.

Guerrero went 4-for-15 in his quick time with Dunedin, and apparently looked healthy enough to now head north and join the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons, according to Jesse Sanchez.

I’m trying to remember- how much longer do they keep him in Buffalo before the service time game pays off?
