  1. Medina had 7Ks last night, not 4.

  2. pat

    Not a huge deal but in that Deivi article it is incorrectly stated that he struck out the side in a K filled outing. He had one K and two popups.

  3. dasit

    my advanced scouting technique of reading box scores tells me that canaan smith will be a star

  4. Wire Fan

    Is Kriske a potential Scranton shuttle reliever next year?

    Also with Maybin on the mend, not sure I see a near term spot for Frazier, even if Gardy lands on the DL. Tauchman would need to be on the roster as a backup CF and I doubt they put Maybin on waivers when his rehab is up.

      That is Frazier’s issue. If he’s not included in a trade, then he likely still won’t be recalled until September roster expansions. Maybin in rehabbing, but they will need to create a spot for him. They could keep him down there for about 20 days, which means he’ll need a sport around August 10th at the latest. The simplest move would be to send Tauchman down for three weeks until rosters expand. That means the fans who were upset that Tauchman was called up instead of Frazier can now get pissed that Tauchman has been sent down, joining Frazier in AAA!

      Then there’s the eventual return of Stanton. No way all these players can fit on the MLB roster before September. Clint is locked in Scranton.

    • CountryClub

      He actually has more potential than that. According to Matt Kardos: mid 90s with a good slider and a promising splitter.

      It was a long road back from TJ, but he’s supposedly opening eyes in his first full season.
