Segedin goes deep again in Tampa loss

By

Based on his Twitter feed, Slade Heathcott swung a bat today for the first time since having his second left shoulder surgery last year. He’s scheduled to return in June.

High-A Tampa (5-3 loss to Dunedin)
CF Eduardo Sosa: 1-4, 2 K
2B Kelvin Castro, RF Shane Brown & SS Jose Mojica: all 0-4 — Castro struck out once, Mojica twice
3B Rob Segedin: 2-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI — six for his last 11 with a double and two homers, his second straight day with a jack
1B Kyle Roller: 2-4, 1 R
C J.R. Murphy & DH Tyson Blaser: both 1-3, 1 BB
LF Ramon Flores: 1-4, 1 RBI, 1 K
RHP Shane Greene: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 4/5 GB/FB

LHP Kramer Sneed: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 1/0 GB/FB — dude just made a spot start on Friday, though he didn’t make it out of the second inning

Triple-A Empire State was snowed out. Yes, snowed. There’s going to play a doubleheader at some point in the future. Both Double-A Trenton and Low-Charleston has scheduled days off.

  • jjyank

    Crazy weather this year man. Lamest DotF this year! Where’s my refund?

  • pat

    Pinder…. BOSS

    Tyler Austin mentioned as a sleeper prospect.

      I bet he plays more 1B as his minor league career progresses. Ultimately a Swish type of RF/1B defender.

      • pat

        Swishies has been an above average defender in RF UZR-wise for his Yankee career. I’ll take that in a heartbeat. I think Austin might even have a little better arm too.

        • Plank

          I think Austin might even have a little better arm too.

          What is that based on?

          • pat

            Absolutely nothing. I made it up to sounds cool so that people would like me.

            • Plank

              Well…It worked!

          • A.D.

            I would hope he does since Swisher doesn’t have much arm and Austin is originally a 3B

  • Plank

    Does Heathcott ever make it to the show? I say no.

    • jjyank

      I say no too. It’s unfortunate, but he’s had a lot of shoulder surgeries to overcome. I wish the best for the guy, but I doubt he makes it.

    Slade swung a bat? Is the other guy still alive?

    Sorry if I missed this, but what’s the deal with Matt Duran? Extended Spring Training?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      Yep. Then SI.

  • Dick Gozinya

    Sorry if I missed this, but that the same deal as Cave? Extended Spring Training then SI?

  • Mike

    Pinder ain’t messing around. Hopefully Segedin gets promoted to AA this year, try to get him back to a more age-appropriate level. They should start playing him in the corners, and maybe at second, to increase his value, if he has those defensive capabilities.

  • JonS

    Does Pinder project as a ML closer?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      No one ever really projects as a closer, they just end up as one.
