Recapping last night’s Tampa Bay Rays minor league activity, here are today’s four stars.

Durham Bulls center fielder Andrew Velazquez went 3 for 5 with a home run in a Durham Bulls doubleheader.  He is now batting .302 for the season with three home runs.  The Bulls went on to sweep the doubleheader, improving their record to 23-14 for the season.  Velazquez came to the Rays along with Justin Williams as part of the trade that sent Jeremy Hellickson to Arizona.

On the mound,  Vidal Nuno improved his record to 3-1 for the Bulls in the second game of their doubleheader with Louisville. He threw five innings, allowing just three hits and a run to go along with six strikeouts.

Montgomery Biscuits shortstop Jermaine Palacios went 3 for 5 in a 12-11 slugfest loss against Birmingham.  Palacios added three RBI in the game.  He is the prospect that the Rays acquired in trading Jake Odorizzi to the Minnesota Twins during spring training this year.

Bowling Green pitcher Jose Disla pitched three shutout innings in relief in a 5-4 win against Great Lakes.  He allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out three.

The Charlotte Stone Crabs were rained out last night.  They open a weekend series tonight against Jupiter.
