MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: May 8

Casey Kelly, Carlos Quentin and Chase Headley all continued their rehab assignments Thursday. None had much success.

Chihuahuas 4 - Fresno Grizzlies 7

Key Statistics LF Carlos Quentin 0-3, GIDP; 1B Tommy Medica 2-4; C Adam Moore 2-4, 2 RS; CF Alex Castellanos 1-4, 2B, RS, 3 RBI; RHP Billy Buckner 5.2 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K .

Prospect Watch: I think Quentin is ready; 0-3 and a double play!! He will fit right in. In prospect news, Jace Peterson played short and went 1-3 with a walk. Jonathan Galvez came in late for Quentin and went 0-2 with an RBI. Nothing of note of any prospect. CF Rico Noel who led the Texas League in stolen bases last year and is hitting .361/.439/.361 with RISP, has not appeared in a game in four days. Instead CF went to an infielder?.
