Edition Two of “Hot or Not” with plenty to talk about. At the dish, Reading had a huge night last evening, influencing numbers and sending Cesar Hernandez and Darin Ruf climbing up the charts. Leandro Castro has also been consistently ,making things happen. Anthony Hewitt’s “promotion” is not going well early on and the struggles of Jeremy Barnes continue.
Nice to see Brody COlvin breaking through on the hot pitcher list, which included two nice starts by Trevor May. Jesse Biddle had a rough outing this week, but too early for real concern. The Lehigh Valley bullpen plays prominently in the Hot Reliever section with two real nice outings by Kenny Giles getting him some “pub”.
