Clearwater Threshers Review

It’s been a couple of weeks since we took a look at the Clearwater Threshers, and for that I appologize. I was out of town on business, almost immediately followed by being out of town another week for a funeral, so I haven’t had a lot of time to dedicate to baseball lately.

Daily Discussion

Just a few quick notes to get the day started:

In Lehigh Valley, Justin Lehr was named the International League Pitcher of the Week (5/10–5/10) for the second time this year, while in Reading Vance Worley was named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the same time period.

In Clearwater last night, Kyle Drabek had another solid outing in CLearwater’s extra inning win, going 5 innings and allowing one run.¬† He did not get a decision. Dominic Brown has been on fire as well, hitting above .325, with a 6RBI game over the weekend.

In Lakewood, Anthony Gose stole his 19th base of the very young season last night.  Impressive.

Relief Pitcher Matt German, who has been outstanding this year for Reading, was placed on the DL with a strained oblique muscle.
