(17) – Stefan Gartrell | OF | Chicago (AL)
Three of the Top 7 home run hitters in the Southern League come from the same Birmingham squad but only catcher Tyler Flowers is a legitimate prospect. Gartrell, 25, has come a long way since being drafted out of the University of San Francisco in the 31st round as a senior in 2006. He’s repeating double-A after spending all of 2008 in Birmingham, as well.
(17) – David Cook | OF | Chicago (AL)
Cook has been kicking around the system since being drafted out of the University of Miami (Ohio) in 2003. Now 28, the outfielder is having a nice season while providing veteran leadership to the organization’s young prospects. He was recently promoted to triple-A.

The Southern League announced prior to Tuesday night’s game that Barons outfielder Jordan Danks will replace David Cook in the 2009 Southern League All-Star Game.
The most intriguing move was the promotion of catcher Adam Ricks to Birmingham from Winston-Salem. Three catchers in Birmingham…mmmm, I wonder. With outfielder Christian Marrero and utility man Javier Colina manning first base after Brandon Allen’s promotion to Triple A, does this mean we see Tyler Flowers move there? Or will he DH more now? …
As FutureSox says Barons OF David Cook was promoted to Charlotte.
