Greenjackets in Asheville tonight

Hey guys, I’ll be taking a run down to McCormick field in Asheville tonight to see the Tourists (Rockies) take on the Augusta Greenjackets (Giants).  It will be my 3rd look at Augusta this year.

On the mound tonight for the Greenjackets is right hander  Cory Taylor, he’s 22, he’s listed 6’2″ 255 lbs, bats and throws right. Taylor was drafted by the Giants in the 8th round of the 2015 draft out of Dallas Baptist.  Statistically he’s having a pretty good year I’m looking forward to seeing him.

On the mound for the Tourists is high profile right hander Peter Lambert, he’s 19, listed 6’2″ 185 lbs, he bats and throws right. Lambert was drafted by the Rockies in the 2nd round of the 2015 draft out of high school in San Dimas, Ca (Los Angeles metro). Lambert’s been terrific but his last few starts have been bumpy. I think he’s tired.  This often happens to teenagers in there 1st exposure to full season ball, they wear down from the grind.

Some the Greenjackets hitters I’m looking forward to seeing are

SS Lucius Fox

2B Jalen Miller

CF Johneshwy Fargas is back with Augusta.  As much as I enjoy seeing him I would prefer it if he was off conquering the next level.

I would love to see 3B Kelvin Beltre as well but he’s out with a broken arm.

We’ll see who else stands out.

For the Tourists I’m always look forward to seeing

2B-SS Brendan Rodgers

CF-LF Mylz Jones

LF-RF Sam Hilliard

It should be a fun one tonight, I’ll be live Tweeting throughout @AshevilleSoxFan
