  1. -LH JoJo Romero – 1 perfect IP – 7 pitches – 7 strikes
    He is getting very close to a recall.

  2. Rojas….77 games, 38 stolen bases.
    Reading has approx 60 games left in the season….with any luck, Rojas could end up with 70 SBs for the year. Right now he is 4th in all of the minors. Doubt he will ever catch Max Ferguson in the Cal League with 51 SBs, but good chance he comes in runner-up.

    1. Romus……..I think if Rojas is a throw-in and DD Is certainly concocting something, we will greatly regret it. Also, Ethan Lindow appears to be quite the technician. Though he lacks the heater, not many walks in his stuff! I hope Cole Irwin is a reminder/lesson to us.

    2. Not really sure what to make of Rojas right now. He’s been great in Reading, though small sample. Very mixed bag in jersey shore.

      I wonder if they were having him try specific things at the plate before that might have hampered his numbers. It wouldn’t be the first time. Or maybe he’s just in a groove.

      1. let him get in a groove right now and sell him at the peak of his value. personally i still question his hit tool in terms of being a key player on a good mlb team, but let some other gm fall in love with him and get us something for the current team

        1. If he is still on the team in 2023, I would think Rojas will again be a camp invitee in the spring…perhaps start the season at LHV, or maybe Reading again for a short stop-over, and then maybe get a chance in Philly by August 2023.
          I assume, he will be on the 40 come December he is now Rule 5 eligible after this season…… and seems injuries happen every season, so who knows.

  3. I wonder if Lindow gets consideration to pitch in Toronto. Hell be properly rested, and we know a bunch of our guys arent gonna be able to make the trip

      1. Haha very good point. Do you know something we dont there? All I know is if I were a minor leaguer Id make sure I was vaxed in case an opportunity like this came up. But if hes not, yeah hes not in the equation. Im really worried were gonna miss the playoffs by a game or two and theyll look back at get swept by toronto bc they have to field a AAA team
