Looks like Rowan Wick was promoted to Peoria today. I'll be at Dozer Park tonight, I'll report back after the game with what I see.

Also, a note about Reyes would be great. I love reading about this kid.

Wick didn't look very good in four of his five at-bats. He looked overmatched and, in his first one, looked like he had never seen a curveball before. But that one other at-bat, in the bottom of the ninth, he looked great. 

The first pitch he saw he launched into right field to cut a five run deficit down to two. Based on the swings I saw, I had no idea how he'd make contact. But when he gets a ball he likes, in the spot he wants it, it's not staying in the yard.

EDIT: Here's a link to Wick's home run, if you're into that sort of thing.

As for Reyes, he was a touch on the wild side at times, especially when he got down in the count. It seemed like he'd try to reach back for something extra and would find it, but would miss the strike zone. He threw one at 97 that missed way high and outside. Then he'd pinpoint the zone and strike someone out on three pitches. He didn't get a decision and the only run he gave up came on a double to left when Wick airmailed the throw back in.
