A possible microfracture surgery down the road has dropped Da'Quan Bowers, a top 5 talent out of the first round.

By Brandon Pemberton

The other day I released a list of my top 50 prospects in the 2011 NFL Draft. Here are my top remaining prospects going into todays 2nd and 3rd round.(the number represents where they were ranked coming into the draft on my board.) Look for these players to come off the board early today in the second round. The concern with Da’Quan Bowers knee is the reason why he has dropped out of the first round. Rumor is that he eventually might have to have a micro-fracture surgery. Enjoy day two of the draft.

Prospect Watch: Brown, Aumont

Domonic Brown hit his second home run in as many days for the Threshers on Thursday. It’s only two games, but Brown has apparently gotten back to his comfort level at the plate. In 9 plate appearances, Brown has two singles, two homers, four RBIs, and a walk.

Meanwhile, in Reading, possibly Brown’s second destination on his rehab tour, Phillipe Aumont pitched a perfect inning of relief Thursday afternoon striking out all three batters he faced. For the year that bring Aumont’s K:BB ratio to 15:4 in just 9.2 innings.

The Irony of It All

Blanton is eligible to come off the DL on May 9th

Anyone else notice we have a WV and a VW on the team?

Late last night the Phillies made an addition. Just not the kind you really hope for. They added Joe Blanton to the list of walking wounded, placing him on the 15-day DL with what is being called “a medical impingement” on his right elbow. Blanton said he had felt discomfort in his pitching elbow in his last two starts. What makes this ironic is that in his last two starts, Blanton pitched to an ERA of 2.57. To fill his spot the Phillies have called up right hander Vance Worley. Worley has a 2-2 record in Lehigh Valley, but is sporting a 2.78 ERA with a K:BB ratio of 25:6.
