  1. Nick Gordon's 2018:

    Month Avg OBP SLG OPS
    Overall .350 .392 .526 .918
    April .345 .363 .536 .898
    May .358 .435 .509 .945

    His plate discipline has improved some in May. In April he had 3:12 BB:K; so far in May it's up to 6:11. I hope they move him up before the All-Star break.

    1. I have no idea what more they think they need to see. And the Rochester second baseman, Taylor Featherston, is batting .152, so it's not like anybody's blocking him. Whatever they think he still needs to work on, he can work on it in AAA.
