Lots of catching up to do on the Astros minor league front! But first, my unbounded gratitude to Dustin for keeping things going so beautifully while I've been traveling (and recuperating from a bit of a cold). If you aren't reading Dustin's recaps, you are really depriving yourselves!

In an update on Corpus Christi OF Danry Vasquez after his recent collision with Mott Hyde, the initial reports of a possible torn ACL were apparently incorrect. This Spanish language article reports that Vasquez suffered from a dislocated kneecap and should only be out for a couple of weeks, a report that was corroborated by friend of the blog Jeremy Schmidt.
Come back tomorrow for another farm report that will catch you up on the Astros minor league club standings.
