I'm not sure if it's been posted here, but they just announced it on WLW.

He was 0-1 witha 2.88 era over 25 innings. 11 bb and 28 k's with 2 saves.

Considering his age, it's time to move him out and bring up some younger arms. Best of luck Jim.

Roenicke to AAA, Geronimo to AA and who to Sarasota? Thats my guess.

Well, I certainly agree with Roenicke. I'm not that familiar with Geronimo however. Good stuff?

He has allowed a run in 1 game this year. 0 runs in his other 22. He is absolutely dominating the FSL right now out of the bullpen.

Jocketty is clearing out the fluff. Good to see! We've been holding guys back (especially middle relievers) for the sake of backup veterans for too long.

Speaking of which, Guevara is starting up in the PCL: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 5 SO, 1 BB. I still think we're going to regret not protecting him, even if he's just a serviceable middle reliever for a few years.

Notable pitcher's (by performance) in Dayton -- possible promotion candidates?


Name Age IP ERA WHIP H BB SO
Montana 23 55.0 3.27 1.09 48 12 42
Del Rosario 22 45.1 1.59 0.82 28 9 31
Klinker 22 43.2 3.30 1.15 42 8 34
Valiquette 21 26.0 3.12 1.35 25 10 32
Jeffords 23 25.0 2.52 1.32 24 9 36

Valiquette is the only one I'm familar with. Del Rosario has been amazing at avoid hits, but the K rate doesn't back it up. Jeffords' K rate is of the chart, but he's a reliever. Montano looks like the most well rounded starter of the bunch.

Wow. I love Geronimo's numbers. Good lord!

0-0 / 0.78 era / 3 saves / 23 ip / 11 hits / 5 bb / 29 k's / .138 opp avg

That's impressive stuff. How in the world did I not even NOTICE the guy? Sheesh!

Valiquette was already promoted so he isn't an option.

Del Rosario and Valiquette were both promoted to Sarasota earlier this week.
