    White Sox P Kyle Drabek performing well at Triple-A

    Right-hander Kyle Drabek has not gone from top prospect to dud quite yet. He is only 27 and is on a roll at Triple-A Charlotte. Drabek was demoted by the White Sox after three relief appearances in April. He has been used exclusively as a starter with the Knights and owns a 2.85 ERA. He has allowed just 54 hits in 66 1/3 innings with 21 walks and 45 strikeouts. He spent parts of four seasons with Toronto after being selected in the first round of the 2006 draft by Philadelphia, but never came close to reaching his potential. His big-league career ERA is 5.27 and he has yielded an unacceptable 113 walks in 177 2/3 innings.

    Blue Jays pitchers get work in before game called due to rain

    The Blue Jays/Phillies spring opener was stopped after 6 1/2 innings Wednesday because of rain. However, it was still plenty of time for three pitchers who hope to be in the Blue Jays' rotation to make their first spring training appearances. J.A. Happ, who should be in the rotation come opening day, struggled in his spring debut. He was taggged for two runs on four hits and one walk in one inning of work. However, Happ did record three strikeouts. Happ was replaced in the second inning by Todd Redmond, who is competing for the final spot in the team's rotation. Redmond (1-0) actually earned the win thanks to two scoreless innings in a 4-3 victory for Toronto. He didn't allow a hit or walk, while striking out one. Kyle Drabek, who is also competing for the final spot in the rotation, replaced Redmond. He recorded a hold, as he allowed one run on one hit and three walks in 1 2/3 innings. Drabek recorded one strikeout.
