Apparently catching prospect Casey Rasmus has retired in a premature way you would think.

The Chiefs juggled their rotation. I wrote about it last week in this subscriber article.

Just got back from the double header in Peoria. I missed the 1st inning where Reyes walked a few and gave up a hit and a run. The rest of the game he was dominant. Sitting 92-93 on 4 seamers and popped 95 a few times. 94 in the 7th inning. Used mainly fastballs the first 4 innnings then starting working the curveball after. Ended up with a 7 inning CG allowing only 2 hits, he also did well against Cubs Ryan Sweeney.

I reallly like Vaughn Bryan, didn't see him hit right handed but he has good bat speed and a smooth swing from the left side. He also flys. Hit 2 doubles to the left center field gap today.

Second game Chase Brookshire- he just throws up junk but had only given up 1 run through 5 innings. He gave up solid contact and about 6 hits but only one.

Jhonny Polanco- Sat 93, popped 95. Everything was straight was barrelled pretty hard. Ball about caught him on a shot up the middle. He caught it but then threw into CF trying to double the guy at 2nd.

Very good read.  I'm sad that Swauger didn't reach the Bigs but very pleased he's remaining in St. Louis' organization.

I drove up for the Peoria DH as well.  I liked Alex Reyes.  Good size at 6-3 #220 or so. Looks the role.  I had most of his fastballs in the 93-95 range.  Started off slow, with a lot of full counts, but breezed thru Kane County in the second half of game.  Retired 15 straight hitters at one point.  Two secondary pitches were in the 84-86 range and in the 76-78 range.  On the games were he has command of his pitches he will be hard to beat.

Vaughn Bryan and CJ McElroy will be interesting players to watch thru July and August.  Also liked Carson Kelly's size and potential, plus he won't be 20 yrs. old until next month.  Disappointed in Steve Bean's bat.  For a big kid he is more of a slap hitter than Kelly, who is never short-changed on his swing.

Might be why his power is his weakest tool and hasn't even improved upon slightly in his pro career.

Does it look like Juan Hererra might be able to play in the Major Leagues some day?

I think so. He's got a weirdish swing but he can field and run.
