Brevard County Hitting Rehearsal

I like the idea, but I feel like they could have come up with a better name than hitting rehearsal. They need something catchy otherwise everyone is going to continue to call it BP. Anyone have a better suggestion?

Another solid outing for Cappy

Another strong outing for Capuano in Brevard County. 5IP, 6H, 1ER, 0BB, 5K

Interview with Manatees Hitting Coach Corey Hart

With many sports fans enjoying the Final Four and the final exhibition game not until 9 PM, it's a slow day for Brewers news. In case you're interested, the Brevard County Manatees' web site interviewed Corey Hart last week. Before you ask, the Brewers' right fielder hasn't retired to a coaching career. No, this is the other Corey Hart, a .242/.371/.317 hitter over eight seasons in the minors. My favorite part is the story of how he got the job: "I went to Spring Training with the Brewers in 2006. Halfway through camp, I was released on a Friday and offered the Brevard County hitting coach job at same time. I interviewed on Saturday and was coaching on Sunday." Oh, and "Fear the Sea Cow!" is one hell of a rallying cry.

Brevard's graveyard

Not as alarming as it sounds; it's an article about how tough a place it is to hit in.

Gamel, Jeffress, and Lucroy make the BA Hot Sheet

No.'s 11, 12, and 13, respectively. Gamel: "With a .373/.438/.631 batting line this season, Gamel is making a strong push for our Minor League Player of the Year honors. He's a tremendous hitter, with the ability to hit for average, hit for power and get on base at a good clip. Gamel, a lefthanded hitter, struggled yesterday against changeups from a righthander, but otherwise showed a patient approach and drove the ball with ease. His actions in the field aren't fluid—he made three errors in the last seven days, giving him 22 on the year—which dings his value whether he stays at third base or has to move to the outfield. But with his hitting ability, Gamel will soon force his way into a big league lineup." Jeffress: "Jeffress has one of the best fastballs in the minors, as the Florida State League has found out in recent weeks. What Jeffress needs to do now is improve his consistency. He's allowed one or fewer runs in five of his eight starts, but he's also put up three duds—giving up 20 earned runs in 11 2/3 innings. He's been making progress in that regard, going 2-1, 2.45 in June. His control has been especially impressive, as he's now struck out 56 batters and walked just 15 in 41 2/3 innings." Lucroy: "Lucroy has been knocking on the door of the Hot Sheet for several weeks now, but has been denied because his performance was more worthy of the "Men Among Boys" category, since he was 22 in low Class A. He has since moved up to high Class A, where he has continued his assault on pitchers. Four of his nine hits this week were for extra bases and his minor league totals are now .310/.382/.522 with 12 home runs in 268 at-bats."

Fantastic scouting report on Jeremy Jeffress

In-depth analysis of what he throws and why he struggles. Articles like this are why it's so great to be a baseball fan in the internet age.

Lucroy promoted to Brevard County

Excellent news. Now he can start showing up on Baseball America's Hot Sheet; he made it last week, but they consider him too old for his level to officially qualify: "Low Class A West Virginia catcher Jonathan Lucroy (Brewers) is celebrating his 22nd birthday today, the downside of which is that he'll be sentenced to the Men Among Boys section of the Hot Sheet whenever he puts up a good week while staying in low Class A. That's the case this week for Lucroy, who hit .320/.452/.600 (8-for-25) with a double, two home runs, and three RBIs. The 2007 third rounder is hitting .311/.390/.515 in 235 at-bats for the season. He's a very solid prospect, we just are looking forward to seeing what he can do against older competition. "

Lorenzo Cain promoted to AAA

The poster, if you're curious, is Cain's agent. I have to say, this is very surprising. Cain needed to be promoted and was blocked by Cole Gillespie and Matt LaPorta at AA, but both of those players are older than Cain, and I expected one of them to get the bump to Nashville. Obviously the team values keeping the winning core together down in Huntsville. You can find Cain's current and career stats, as well as his current splits, on the Prospects sidebar on the right-hand side of the page.

Brent Brewer promoted to Brevard County

Brent Brewer 2007 at WV: .251/.315/.390/.705 Brent Brewer 2008 at WV: .213/.294/.310/.604 I guess they figured he needed a challenge?

Jeffress pounded

4.7 IP, 11 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HR, 2 WP The stuff appears to have been fine, and he was doing quite well until the middle of the the fourth inning, when the wheels came completely off.
