A few tidbits to get it going:
Jason Knapp has begun a throwing program in Lakewood, in hopes of returning over the next couple of weeks. He last pitched July 11, before being placed on the disabled list.
Kyle Drabek, coming back from one of his few bad starts, was a small notch below dominant last night, going 8 innings and giving up just 2 runs on 6 hits. He walked one and struck out 7. Neil Sellers continued raking for Reading, hitting his 10th homer of the year, while raising his average to .322 with another multi hit game.
Jason Donald continued his rehab in the Gulf Coast League, appearing as a designated hitter for the second consecutive day yesterday, going 2-2 with 2 runs, rbi, and a SB. Hopefully, we will be at SS today and be back in the Lehigh Valley lineup for the weekend.
The minor league catching corps has grown thin with recent injuries to both Reading starting catcher Tuffy Gosewich and Clearwater starter Joel Naughton. Both were recently placed on the disabled list.
