Sun Devils in the Bigs Links
Ian Kinsler's hit streak ended as the Rangers were shut out yesterday against the Twins.
ESPN is known for covering the Red Sox a little too much. The good part is that means they have obligatory articles on Dustin Pedroia.
Jeff Larish just got sent back down to AAA Toledo.
Brooks Conrad and Travis Buck (Athletics AAA affiliate) led the Sacramento Rivercats to a 10-1 win last night over the Las Vegas 51's.
Conrad, Buck, Matt Spencer and Petey Paramore are a part of the work in progress Oakland A's.
Eric Sogard continues to dominate in A ball for the Padres, hitting at a .306 clip.

Saw this on Deadspin the other day...check out Beau Vaughan's picture on MILB.com.
CJ Retherford is doing well in Winston-Salem (White Sox, A ball) with 15 homeruns this season. Nice picture of him at the top of the article.
Brett Wallace got to go to the All-Star game this year, being in town for the Golden Spikes Award Ceremony. The award, obviously, went to Buster Posey.
