Just some quick hits from over the weekend:
Tyson Gillies was removed from the Reading game Saturday evening in Harrisburg after a collision. He is day to day with a wrist contusion.
Brody Colvin worked in relief after being scheduled to start the Clearwater game on Saturday night.
Austin Hyatt is suffering the same short term fate as Colvin. Hyatt is being removed from the Lehigh Valley rotation in favor of Tom Cochran. I suspect it is short term and simply to give Hyatt a psychological breather.
So, if Halladay is placed on the DL, who comes up? The obvious choice had been Scott Elarton but ELarton has really struggled his last several starts. The new obvious choice is Dave Bush who has pitched several well recently including a complete game shutout in his last outing. He also has a June 1 “out clause” in his contract, so this seems to make some short term sense. My dark horse candidate is Tyler Cloyd, who has impressed in just abut every outing this year.
Harold Martinez has been hitting the ball, raising his average to .277 in Lakewood, while playing predominately 1B.
Another three hits for Leandro Castro last night, who after a miserable April (.214), has hit ,436 over his last 10 games t raise his average to .277.
Happy Memorial Day and thank you to all who have served!
