            (Note: clicking this link is not really worth your time) For some reason, FiveThirtyEight blog discussed the Tim Tebow promotion. They didn’t say anything new, they just “had fun” with Baseball Pro’s minor league WAR, which is a really weird stat to evaluate him by. I think someone just wanted to get a dig in on Tebow.

            In an unusual take, the AJC says Tebow earned his promotion.

            Per Steve Wilmoth of TriCitiesSports, Aaron Ford Feels At Home With K-Mets.

Recapish


            Las Vegas cruised to an 8-0 lead behind Tyler Pill Monday night, only to see the Rainiers charge back against the 51s pen and take the series opener 9-8. The 51s had a power outburst against Rainiers starter Chase De Jong, launching three doubles and three homers against him over his 5.1+ IP. Pill took a shutout into the 6th, but then Tacoma hit a pair of homers against him before he left, and another homer against Logan Taylor in the 7th. They completed the comeback with Alberto Baldonado on the mound, who has had trouble adjusting to Triple-A this year.

Recapish


            The Binghamton Rumble Ponies wasted a great comeback effort from the offense in a 7-6 series opening loss to the Hartford Yard Goats. P.J. Conlon got the start for Binghamton and struggled. He battled through three-plus innings, but was charged with all seven Hartford runs in the loss, and again it was the homer ball that burned him. He’s now allowed thirteen homers in his fifteen starts this season, with ten of those homers coming over his last ten starts (48.1 IP, 1.9 HR/9-inn).

Recapish


            The Columbia Fireflies hit the road Monday to start a series with the Lexington Legends and took the opener 4-0 after a pair of old faces rejoined the team. Thomas McIlraith and Vinny Siena came to the Fireflies from opposite directions, with McIlraith continuing to work his way back from a strained oblique injury, while Siena looks for a reset after struggling to hit with the St. Lucie Mets over the past year. Siena may have had a quiet day at the plate, but McIlraith made his presence known with six shutout innings in the win. At the plate, Jay Jabs stayed hot with his third homer of the year, and Andres Gimenez connected for his third three-hit game of the month. Milton Ramos made his pro debut in LF during the game, taking over for Gene Cone, who left unexpectedly and with no word from the MiLB.tv broadcast.
