The Generals have had a bit of a rough start to the season, plagued by bad weather and poor pitching, especially in the bullpen. Still, there’s a few stat lines that stand out among the non-premium players.

The first full week of minor league action is complete, and with it comes the first edition of MFR’s weekly recaps for each club. For now, it starts simple; as things progress and time allows, the recaps will get more detailed. For now, we start with what we have. Everything should be pretty self-explanitory; if not, ask in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Opening Day Roster
Because of where the Mariners’ prospect depth currently lays, the Generals might just be the team to watch in the organization this year, as they have some of the more interesting prospects in the system.
Prospects To Watch:
Sorry I couldn’t be more timely with this one; the announcement was made literally ten minutes in to my drive to SafeCo Field yesterday for the home opener. Them’s the breaks sometimes…
Due to the knee injury of Adam Moore, the young catcher has been placed on the 60-day DL, necessitating the callup of Chris Gimenez to replace him on the roster. Because Moore is on the 60-day DL, he’s temporarily off the 40-man roster, so no one had to be DFA’d to clear roster space for Gimenez.

The 2010 season was something of a transitory one for the West Tennessee DiamondJaxx, as only three position players and five pitchers were full-season contributors to the team due to transactions and injuries galore. They saw a number of early season contributors shuffle around, many heading up to AAA Tacoma, with a handful of their struggling players shipping down to High Desert.

Final 2010 Record: 73-66, lost in first round of playoffs
2010 Batting Leaders: Carlos Peguero 23 HR | Alex Liddi 92 RBI, .281 BA
2010 Pitching Leaders: Michael Pineda 8 W, 2.22 ERA
