- Mikey O’Brien was promoted from Low-A Charleston to High-A Tampa while Scottie Allen went the other way. I thought they’d give O’Brien the full year with the River Dogs, but I guess not.
- Addison Maruszak was demoted from Triple-A Scranton down to Double-A Trenton. Corey Maines went fromCharleston to Short Season Staten Island.
- Jason Place has been released. Not surprising, he was just filler despite his former first round pick status. Warner Madrigal was released as well.
- Josh Norris posted video of Bryan Mitchell as well as Cito Culver, Mason Williams, and Angelo Gumbs.
Now for the games…
Double-A Trenton (3-2 loss to New Britain, walk-off style) Brian Cashman was in the house
Ray Kruml, CF: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E (fielding) – ten for his last 23 (.435) with a triple and two homers
Corban Joseph, 2B: 0 for 4, 2 K
Austin Romine, C: 1 for 4, 1 SB – good to see him back after the concussion
Cody Johnson, DH, Bradley Suttle, 3B, Rob Lyerly, 1B & Damon Sublett, RF: all 0 for 3 – Johnson walked, scored a run, and struck out twice … Suttle walked … Lyerly got hit by a pitch and struck out twice … Sublett whiffed once
Jose Pirela, SS: 1 for 3, 1 RBI
DeAngelo Mack, LF: 1 for 2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K – got picked off second
Phil Hughes, RHP: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 3-3 GB/FB – he was sitting 92-93 early and 91 in the third … he threw 72 pitches overall but 27 of them came in the fourth inning, when he struggled to put guys away … Hughes said he threw more cutters than usual but felt good, and Cashman said he just needs to work on fastball command and will make a “few more starts” … oh, and today is his 25th birthday, so happy birthday to him
Cory Arbiso, RHP: 0.2 IP, zeroes, 1 K
Shaeffer Hall, LHP: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 4-4 GB/FB
Naoya Okamoto, LHP: 0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 er, 2 BB, 0 K – brutal way to lose, the walk-off walk
