Sublett finally returns from injury

By

HWB Waikiki (9-6 loss to West Oahu)
Damon Sublett: 1 for 2, 1 2B, 1 K – first game action since getting hurt on May 29th … I’m still not quite sure what exactly the injury was, I’ve heard everything from torn knee ligaments to a broken ankle to a broken wrist, so who really knows … the general consensus seems to be that he suffered the injury while sliding into a bag, so all of the injuries would fit that scenario

No Yankees’ farmhands played in Tuesday night’s game, which Waikiki loss 12-3. Considering they have the most talented team in the league (on paper), it’s got to be disappointing that the Beach Boys are 0-4 and have been outscored 36-15. Andrew Brackman will take the bump for his second start either tonight or tomorrow, depends on what they do with the off day earlier this week.

Oh, and how cool is this? MLB.com now has a page for each ML club that gives stats for all their minor leaguers playing winter ball. It’s about time they put something like this together, no more digging around to find guys hidden away in obscure Caribbean leagues. Just awesome.

The Arizona Fall League starts next Monday.

    So Sublett was 1 for 2, that = FUTURE SUPERSTAR.
    If he was 0 for 2, then that would = COLOSSAL FAILURE.

  4. dan says:

    According to his facebook page back when it happened it was torn ligaments… not sure where they were torn, though.

  5. Jacob says:

    I’m not familiar with him. What kind of prospect is he? How high is his ceiling?

  6. dan says:

    Pete Abraham mentioned Luis Sojo as an option for a coaching job next season. It was purely idle speculation, but what do you guys think? He’s the Tampa manager now, for those unaware.
