    Sometimes being a “good soldier” helps.

    Wes Darvill played all of last season out of position at third base in Single-A after early injuries to Javier Baez and Dustin Geiger. Now, he is replacing Alberto Gonzalez on Iowa’s roster.

    Good to see such a young group of pitchers, I don’t believe any are over 30. Good to have depth on the 25 man so the younger guys can get a chance.

    I know its just triple A, but an OF of Bogusevic, McDonald and Jackson? Yeesh.
