Roster Moves: I thought we'd catch up on these a little bit, since it's been a while since we've looked at them. As Enerio Del Rosario got the call to the big leagues, Joseph Krebs is back in AAA. The Cycle was sporting a 3.75 ERA in AA to start the year. There's a new face in Carolina as well, with former Phillies 2nd round pick Mike Costanzo on the roster. Costanzo was involved in both the Brad Lidge deal with the Astros and the Miguel Tejada deal with the Orioles. The 3B is hitting .217 in 23 AB so far this year. A few new faces in Lynchburg, as Efrain Contreras got a promotion, despite hitting .207 in Dayton, and James Avery made his 2010 debut after the Canadian starter spent the last couple seasons in AA. There are a few new names in Dayton, mostly former Billings guys like Blair Carson and Tim Crabbe, but the most intriguing name on the list is outfielder Cameron Satterwhite. The former 50th round pick out of Moeller HS didn't sign with the Indians out of school, but went on to the University of Cincinnati and hit well there for 3 years. After not getting drafted, he went and played in the independent Frontier League last year, hitting .317 for Evansville. So far this year, he's hitting .417 in 12 AB for the Dragons so far (going into yesterday's games), and hopefully will keep this story going. Even though it's a small sample size so far, it's nice seeing local guys out of indy ball doing well. On to the games...
Louisville lost 6-3 to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Logan Ondrusek earned the loss with a 4-run 8th inning, and Ben Jukich gave up 2 runs in his 4 innings of work. Michael Griffin had 3 hits in the game, including 2 doubles. Up next: Chad Reineke takes the hill against Scranton at 7:05.
- Carolina won a wild one against Chattanooga, 9-7. Dallas Buck didn't even get out of the first inning, giving up 4 runs in 2/3. Hopefully it's not another injury. Jeremy Horst and Jerry Gil picked up the slack, only giving up one run each in 3 innings of work each. Dave Sappelt led the way for the offense going 3-for-6 and driving in 4 runs. Jake Kahaulelio, Mike Costanzo, and Eric Eymann all homered for the Mudcats. Up next: The Mudcats are off today.
- Lynchburg was off. They'll take on Myrtle Beach at 7:05.
- Dayton was blanked by Bowling Green 5-0 on a night where the offense couldn't get anything going, with Henry Rodriguez collecting 2 of the 5 Dragons hits. Josh Ravin was the losing pitcher, giving up 4 ER in 6 innings, and Chase Ware pitched 3 perfect innings of relief. Up next: Justin Walker takes on Lake County at 6:30.
