And to you for Sunday (and the format to steal for a quick write-up).

Can we unlock the Giolito thread?  Decent outing tonight: 6.2, 7 hits, 0 er, 2bb, 7ks. Bryan Harper threw 1.1 perfect with two ks.

Wiseman is putting up a great game. Going to get a FTP thread up for him

Lopez at the big league level. Giolito (probably) in AAA. Fedde in Potomac. Nice.

Mariano the III blew another save. He has not been good this season.

Jose Marmolejos-Diaz is having a helluva year. Got the bump to AA. Gonna keep an eye on him. 23 y.o 1B, with some power, good OBP, and solid BA. If he hits over the next couple weeks in AA, I'll get a FTP going.

Was wondering about him when I saw him a few weeks ago. Will see what he does.

No one's really talked about him, but he's having a great year (had a good 2015 too). 1B don't get a ton of hype without big power, which he doesn't have yet (maybe he won't). Still, worth keeping an eye on. "The Orange"

An extensive look at our 2016 draft class so far in the minors (through 8/4)

http://dcprosportsreport.com/washington-nationals-2016-draft-class-update-84/

Lots of strong performances.  Jacob Howell has already made it to low-A.  27 IP, 2.67 ERA 0.85 WHIP

We need a Tyler Watson thread. Dude killed it this season. 2015 HS arm (34th rd pick) that signed. Looks like he's been shut down as well (only 43 IPs this year though).

Yup. P-Nats will get to play some good Texas farm teams at least
Even after the trades the Rangers are still loaded.

Wasn't clear from the article where the other team will locate until the Fayetteville stadium is ready.

I don't think they know yet. Not sold. Probably will see a team announced this offseason as player development contracts are up.

Sounds like the Astros may move with them, but we'll see (stadium won't be completed until 2019).

So, maybe they both play in Kinston for 2017-18?

Or Fayetteville splits time in other stadiums? Not too familiar with Fayetteville, but there's plenty of other Carolina League teams "close" by. I'd imagine they'd do what the Hartford (IIRC -- the Red Sox affiliate) has been doing during their stadium debacle

Read this in another article; apparently there are other temporary options in Fayetteville. 

"If a team wanted to move to the city before a new ballpark is in place, it could find a temporary home at J.P. Riddle Stadium, the former home of the Sally League team and current home of the Fayetteville SwampDogs of the summer college Coastal Plain League. Small-Toney said that hasn’t been considered an option at this point."

Maybe they should have left the temporary stadium up at Ft. Bragg.

Yeah, they'll figure it out. Guessing there will be some shifting in the Cali League too, since they're down to 8 teams now. The Midwest league (different A-level class) has 16 teams, but none regionally close to California. Maybe they'll just have 8 teams...

Everything I've read suggests the California League will stay at 8 for 8+10 Carolina + 12 FSL = 30 total High-A teams.  The FSL numbers probably won't change, as they just play in the spring training ballparks, many of which are pretty nice.  As for the Carolina, I wonder if the Waldorf folks made a pitch there.  They've got the stadium already, and the owners have operated in the Carolina League before (used to own Frederick).
