  5. Reggie C. says:

    Heredia should’ve started in Charleston with a promotion to Tampa in the works after at least a month of work. Obviously his stuff and power hasn’t recovered from an injury that practically cost him a year of development at Charleston. Heredia never threw harder than 90-91, but I wonder if he’s even hitting that number at this point.

      how is that obvious after two starts? do you have anything to back up what youre saying? cause it really doesn’t seem like you know what you’re talking about.

  6. China Joe says:

    On the sixth day, Jesus rested. Seriously, was that a home game? Imagine showing up to a Scranton Yankees game and missing out on Jesus. That’s like showing up to the stadium expected a CC start and getting Sergio Mitre instead.

  7. Barry says:

    Brackman’s MiLB.com player page has him on the DL if you’re still looking for a source.

  8. Ramondo says:

    Jon Albaladejo doesn’t do it with the big club because he is and will never be good enough. That’s just being real. It’s like at the start of the season where everyone is on equal ground yet you know the Pirates are going to stink. Well, I know Jon Albaladejo will never be a good pitcher.

      huh? your whole comment is a lil’ confusing

    What’s the deal with DeAngelo Mack? With a name like that how can he not be a decent prospect?
