Starting next week we plan to start a weekly post covering the D-Rays minor league system. However, Wednesday night’s Visalia Oaks game could not wait until next week to be mentioned. The team tied a California League record by hitting 8 home runs in a 17-15 victory over the Bakersfield Blaze. More importantly, one of the Ray’s top prospects, SS Reid Brignac hit 3 home runs and had 8 RBI. He is now hitting .429 on the season. Can anyone say B.J. Upton, thirdbaseman?
