An abbreviated DotFBy
- Eric Duncan doubled and hit a homer.
- The Steven White to the Bullpen transition has begun, he twirled a scoreless 1.1 innings in relief.
- JB Cox tossed 1.2 scoreless, and has allowed 1 run in his last 15 IP.
- Austin Jackson hit his third homer in his last 6 games. Didn’t I tell you that the doubles would start clearing the fence once the weather warmed up?
- Steven Jackson got lit up in his return to Double-A. I would have preferred it if they kept Jackson in Scranton and cut either Phillips or Traber, but oh well.
- Brandon Laird smacked two homers, giving him 6 XBH in his last 6 games.
- Jairo Heredia made his first appearance since sustaining and “upper body injury,” tossing a scoreless inning.
Michael Kay said during the game broadcast last night that Mark Melancon has been promoted to Triple-A Scranton, but I haven’t been able to confirm it. If true, they’re moving him a bit too fast for my liking, and hopefully they give him at least 2 full months in Scranton before calling him up to the Bronx.
Update: Melancon’s still with Trenton, he hasn’t been promoted.
