Some minor leaguers 

A few random notes about some minor leaguers...

There was some question about whether Nick Regilio would work as a starter or as a middle reliever when he was sent down to AAA. Well, he's pitching in relief of John Wasdin tonight, suggesting that the team is looking at him more as a reliever than as a starter down the road.

The fact that John Wasdin and Jason Standridge are in the Oklahoma rotation makes it that much more inexplicable that John Hudgins has been sent back to AA.

Laynce Nix and Gerald Laird seem to have hit the ground running in Oklahoma, alleviating somewhat the concerns that they'd take their unhappiness about their demotions on the field. Through tonight's game, Laird is hitting .286 in his first three games back in AAA, and Nix is hitting .333, and each has a homer.

Joaquin Arias (.444/.500/.611) has carried his spring hot streak over to the regular season.

Mike Nickeas, on the other hand, is 0 for 13 with 8 strikeouts to start the season at Frisco. He was being jumped from short season-A to AA, a three level leap, and I wondered at the time if the organization wasn't pushing him too rapidly. This suggests that he might be a bit over his head...
