Ponce allowed two earned runs on seven hits and posted a 4:1 K:BB in a game with High-A Carolina on Thursday.

Ponce now owns a 3.35 ERA through eight starts this season, and he has been particularly sharp of late, allowing just four earned runs in 22 innings over his last three outings. He owns just 37 strikeouts this season, but has also issued only six walks and owns a 1.18 WHIP. Having turned 23 in April, he has a shot to move up to the Double-A level at some point this year.
