    1. Marchan to the 7, no explanation. Sands to the COVID IL for 7.

      I’m not 100% sure, but if Sands failed a test and is vaccinated, he just has to pass one or two in a short time period (like 12 hours) to be reinstated. If not vaccinated, his stay becomes a set number of days. Five, I think, including a negative test result. But, like I said, I’m not 100% sure of the minor league rules for this.

      I do know that the Phillies have had non-vaccinated MiLB players go on the IL when their roommates/locker mates have tested positive. If the player had been vaccinated he would have been able to return much quicker after a negative test.

  1. I’m glad to see a recap with our teams in the top levels putting up a large number of runs.

  2. McCarthy Tatum was drafted in 2019 which seems like forever ago. He’s 26 now and just getting to AA.

    You have to appreciate perseverance.

  3. Plassmeyer may be a pleasant surprise….not sure what the heck happened to him with the Giants, but Cesar Ramos must have found something.
    Will be interested to hear from him what he has to say about it and what he has done to correct whatever was the fault..

    1. Interested to hear what he throws. His numbers have been excellent for Lehigh and he’s not much older than Bailey Falter. He should be in ST next season.
