Here are the day’s notes:
- RHP Chance Adams was named the Double-A Eastern League Pitcher of the Week. He started his season with 9.2 scoreless innings and has a 0.79 ERA (3.02 FIP) through two starts. With Johnny Barbato (traded) and Dietrich Enns (injured) both out, there are some openings in the Triple-A Scranton rotation. I’m guessing Adams will be there soon.
- RHP J.P. Feyereisen has been placed on the Double-A Trenton disabled list, the team announced. Supposedly it’s a shoulder problem. That’s never good. Hopefully it’s nothing a little rest won’t knock out.
Triple-A Scranton had a scheduled off-day.
Double-A Trenton (1-0 win over New Hampshire)
- SS Thairo Estrada: 0-3
- 3B Gleyber Torres: 0-3, 1 K — first career game at third base … the plan is supposedly two games a week at the hot corner
- DH Miguel Andujar: 0-3, 2 K
- 1B Mike Ford: 2-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI
- RF Billy McKinney: 0-2, 1 BB — got picked off first … remember his great Spring Training? he’s off to a 5-for-29 (.172) start, though at least four of his five hits have gone for extra bases (two doubles, one triple, one homer)
- CF Rashad Crawford: 0-3, 1 K
- RHP Domingo German: 6.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 11/3 GB/FB — 57 of 89 pitches were strikes (64%) … German had the turbosinker working tonight, I see
- LHP Nestor Cortes: 0.2 IP, zeroes, 1 K, 0/1 GB/FB — eight pitches, six strikes
