John Gast has been dominating the Triple-A Pacific Coast League this year posting a 3-0 record in five starts and has yet to give up a run in 29.2 innings for the Memphis Redbirds. He pitched 5.0 innings with two hits and tied a season-high with seven strikeouts in his most recent outing against the Nashville Sounds (April 28).

Sean Gilmartin is also pitching well in the early stages of the International League (AAA) for the Gwinnett Braves. He went 8.0 innings with five hits, one run, two walks and three strikeouts to secure a 2-1 win on April 26 against the Louisville Bats. Overall, he is 2-0 with a 2.40 ERA and 14 strikeouts on the season.

Jayce Boyd of the Savannah Sand Gnats (South Atlantic League - Class A) has been difficult for opposing pitchers to get out so far this season. He went .700 (7-10) with four walks, two doubles, a home run and six RBI in a recent series against the Delmarva Shorebirds from April 23-25. He is hitting .395 with nine doubles, two home runs and 22 RBI overall for the Sand Gnats.
