Lehigh Valley and Jersey Shore posted victories yesterday. Reading and Clearwater weren’t as fortunate.
Word is finally out regarding the misfortune that hit the Complex. There is no COVID IL in the minors. So, it will not be readily apparent who is out because of a positive test, contact tracing, or a legitimate injury. So, be careful about any speculation regarding players going onto the IL. The guy who tried to bait me into revealing COVID info about players is gone.
