Minor League Chat, All-star edition

Things are a little slow in the minors right now, with Pulaski and Peoria not yet in action and the AA, A+ and A leagues on their all-star breaks. Ketel Marte represented Jackson in the Southern League All-Star game and had a good day, going 2/5, but couldn't prevent the Southern North losing 6-4 to the Southern South. In the A+ game Gabriel Guerrero played for the Cal League against the Carolina League and finished on the winning side but didn't contribute on offence, going 0/2 before being replaced. No High Desert pitchers were selected; can't think why. We had better representation in the MWL game, where Marcus Littlewood, Jack Reinheimer, Edwin Diaz and Emilio Pagan played for the victorious West Division; Littlewood contributed a walk and a sac fly. Oddly, no Austin Wilson.

The other news, of course, was that the Mariners signed their first round pick, Alex Jackson, for a little north of $4m. I'd guess he'll start out in Peoria and maybe see time in Everett later if he's looking good.
