Bigley Promoted to Ft. Myers
Hicks to Beloit????
I just learned the Beloit outfielder Evan Bigley has been promoted to the Ft. Myers Miracle. I thought there was an outside chance that the Twins tenth round pick in 2008 out of Dallas Baptist would start the season with the Miracle. He was sent down to Beloit, and he showed that he deserved to be in Ft. Myers and today, he will make that flight, and join the Miracle tonight. In 25 games with the Snappers, he hit .307/.340/.446 with six doubles, a triple, two homers and 22 RBI.
Here are a couple of other thoughts, pure speculation on my part at this point. I will be working to find out if my guesses are accurate, or what the other moves are.
∑ First, my assumption is that 2007 first-round pick Ben Revere could be going on the Disabled List for the Miracle. He left the game early on Saturday night. The Miracle did not play on Sunday. Revere was also not in the lineup on Monday. Could he be headed to the Disabled List?
∑ Second, well, you know where Iím going. With Bigley moving up to Ft. Myers, the Beloit Snappers could use another outfielder. Could this be the time for 2008 #1 pick Aaron Hicks? Should it be? Who else could it be? Could be a fun season in Beloit with Hicks joining Angel Morales!
