Padres’ Minor League Roundup for August 10th

Triple-A: El Paso Chihuahuas (30-32)

The Chihuahuas are in the middle of a rare five-game series. They won the first 3 games against Salt Lake Bees, but had their 4-game win streak snapped against the Bees last night with a final score of 5-7. Last night, Taylor Lindsey went 0-for-3 lowering his batting to .208 since coming over in the Houston Street trade with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Lindsey has not been himself since joining El Paso. He had hit at every level as he progress through the Angeles system, but his success at the plater has severely stalled since the trade. Before the trade he had a triple slash line of .247/.323/.400 as a member of the Salt Lake Bees. So he is still in the same league playing against similar opponents, which causes for a scratching of the head. Could it be the pressure of being a key piece of a trade? Could it be adjusting to a new environment? Not entirely sure, but he will need to turn it around if he want to be promoted before the end of the year, and have a shot to make the Major League squad out of Spring Training next year.
