Minors Thread: Mid-Late May

The last thread has gotten too unwieldy and is quickly approaching the time where it will get purged from the front page regardless of the rec number. To promote some discussion, what are some prospects (Rangers or otherwise, I'm not picky) that you have found disappointing this year OTHER THAN Martin Perez, Neil Ramirez, and Jordan Akins. And some prospects you are impressed with OTHER THAN Jurickson Profar, Mike Olt, and Cody Buckel.

Statistically, Will Lamb has disappointed me. The Rangers' 2nd round pick has given up around a hit per inning pitched in Hickory, walked more than he's struckout, and he doesn't strikeout very many. His BB/PA is 11.5% and his K/PA is 10.7%. Now he's very tall and lanky, and I've heard that those are the kinda guys that have trouble repeating their mechanics, but it's still kind of a poor showing from the Clemson lefty. I will now await my painful homicide like a man.

I've been very impressed with Kyle Hendricks, the Rangers 8th round pick from the 2011 draft. Now, I don't know how much of this is his gem from last night, but meh. He's got a 41:5 K:BB ratio in 51.1 Inning. That is phenomenal. I am eager to hear what Parks and Cole have to say about him and his stuff, as they were at his start in MB.

Speaking of Parks, he's posted his thoughts on Nick Tepesch's semi-No hitter over at TFR and you should check it out.
