There’s been this creeping thought in the back of my mind that Chavis’ breakout season has just been a mirage and he’s going to come crashing back down to Earth at some point soon. I’m not basing that on anything, but rather just being negative for the sake of being negative. It’s days like this when I come to my senses. He’s up to a 1.152 OPS for the season and hasn’t really hit a rough patch yet this year. It’ll come at some point, but as long as it’s not prolonged there’s no reason to believe Chavis hasn’t taken a real step forward.

Greenville W 1-0

Tyler Hill: 1-4, 1 RBI, 1 K

Roldani Baldwin: 0-4, 2 K

Lorenzo Cedrola: 1-3, 1 K

Stephen Nogosek: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K

Baldwin is a fairly interesting hitter behind the plate. He’s not going to blow you away with his average or his on-base skills, but the power makes him a legitimate prospect given his position. The good part of that profile, of course, is that any one swing can break a game open. The bad part is that every once in awhile he’ll have a miserable game like the one he had on Thursday.
