AAA: Las Vegas 51s (18-19) off

The 51s are in last place in the PCL Southern but just 3 games out of first. They will spend the next eight days on the road, going first to Omaha (19-18) and then Iowa. They will start this stretch without their two best starters as Zack Wheeler is resting his sore shoulder clavicle for a turn after seeing doctors in New York and Collin McHugh has joined the Mets in St. Louis to give the overworked pen a long reliever.  This would be a good time for Wilmer Flores to  go on a tear…
