I'm dubbing Anthony Reyes the A-Train, and yes I know the moniker isn't very original, let me know if you can come up with something better.
The A Train had a solid game last night against the AAA Washington affiliate, allowing only 3 hits in 6 innings, striking out 7 and walking none. In case you were wondering about the other 11 outs he got-6 on the ground 5 in the air. So perhaps he's learning to curb the flyballs like a good soldier. In his previous game, Anthony got a bit roughed up, allowing 9 hits in 6 innings including a homerun, but his groundouts to flyouts were 11 to 3. Altogether he's k'd 10 in 12 innings, with a 2.25 ERA and no walks.
Other Memphites of note, John Gall is hitting .379 in 29 AB's, 4 of those hits for extra bases. After a red hot spring, Chris Duncan's bat has cooled to .214/.267/.250. in 28 AB's. And Junior Spivey is hitting only .240, but his OBP is .406 is in 25 AB's. He also has 2 fielding errors.
