Maine throws seven one-hit innings in AAA win

By

OF Mason Williams is on the 7-day DL. He got banged up diving for a ball in the outfield last week. RHP Caleb Cotham has been placed on the DL, but it’s just to control his innings. He’s approaching the limit and they need to back off a bit. Other than that, no news to pass along. Since I haven’t updated the standings in a while, let’s take care of that today. These do not include the results of today’s games, however.

    Cust? Laird?

  • jayd808

    For the past two weeks every game I watch is, like, the same. I know they are all different. 5-4, 4-3, 3-2, etc… etc… Day late and a dollar short. Bottom fell out of Cano. Now Tex is hurt. I don’t WANT TO WHINE, but it feels good.

    • Dave M

      What does that have to do with “Down on the Farm”?

  • Andy In Sunny Daytona

    The FSL and SAL are actually split into two halves. Tampa is 1.5 games up and Charleston is 7.0 back.

  • Jd

    What is going on with mason Williams.

  • Tremont

    Does anybody know when Jordan Cote will appear in a Staten Island game? He hasn’t pitched since July 19.

  • Carl LaFong

    If they have to d/l Tex, they could call Laird or even Ronnie Mustelier up, now that he’s off the d/l. One problem is that neither Laird or Mustelier can play shortstop & if Pena has to be sent down, I’m uncomfortable w/Nix as my backup shortstop.

    Maybe Swisher moves to 1b until Tex’s wrist heals, Ichiro plays rightfield, & we get a look at Mustelier in left field on days Andruw Jones d/h’s?

  • Carla LaFong

    Yay for Cock!

  • Manimal

    Mustelier= Sept call up? We have to at least try every option at third base until Arod gets healthy

    • Manimal

      or even earlier if Chavez gets hurt or Nix doesnt do well
