Around the minors

Scouts in the International League certainly are reporting Heath Bell's dominance for Norfolk He's struck out the side in both outings thus far. Expect to hear his name in trade rumors or for him and Jorge Julio to trade places. Henry Owens still hasn't allowed a hit in three outings and has 10 strikeouts over 4 innings of work. Mike Pelfrey was exteremley effective in his second start last night for Gary Carter's St. Lucie Mets. He's allowed only one unearned run over 11 innings of work and has 13 strike-outs. Remember, all Mets minor league starters are limited to 75 pitches during April. I expect Pelfrey to only make one more stop in the minors before a promotion to Shea. If all goes well for the Mets this season, look for his recall in August so he'll be eligible for post-season play......Cuban pitcher, Alay Soler has been assigned to St. Lucie as well and pitched five scoreless innings in his first start...........Lastings Milledge is batting lead-off for Norfolk and hitting .300
