Carolina Mudcats news...

RHP Ruben Medina has been assigned to the Bakersfield Blaze of the California League, while C James Skelton has been assigned to the Mudcats from Goodyear, AZ. Skelton was signed as a free agent earlier in May.

Syracuse defeated Durham this afternoon 11-0. The Chiefs DH, Robert Aubrey, was 4-4... four home runs and seven RBI! Not a bad day.

Taken from sundeck...

Reds optioned RHP Mike Leake to Triple-A Louisville.
He was sent down to make room for Jose Arredondo on the active roster. Leake was removed from the rotation earlier this month and struggled in the bullpen, so he's better off starting every fifth day in the minor leagues.

So who goes out of the rotation when Leake goes in at Louisville?

I'd guess Cochran.

Who moved into the rotation when Homer came back to Cinti? Whoever that was would be my guess to move out.

Mesoraco just hit a ROCKET out for a 3 run home run in the 1st and it ups the lead to 4-0 for the Bats.

Someone is ready.

But someone else also hit 2 dingers against the Cardinals today :thumbup:.

Yeah, Ramon doesn't seem like he's ready to be moved out. Great situation for the ballclub.

Cochran has really been the ace of the Bats staff. I'd guess Carroll will go to Carolina.

But they also might put Dontrelle back in the pen.

L'ville just put up a 4 spot in the 5th.

Francisco & Frazier single, Hermida walked, Dorn & Cleven doubled. 8-2 now.

Cozart 2 for 4
Valaika 2 for 3
Francisco 2 for 3
Dorn 2 for 3
Frazier & Mesoraco both 1 for 3 (Mes' hit was a 3 run bomb)

Willis pitching. 6 hits, 1 earned run, 1 bb, 2 k's, 5.1 innings

Wow, didn't realize his numbers were that good. That'll make it a hard decision for the Reds, then.

But has there been any report on Hanigan after he was hit on the hand or wrist Friday night and left the game? Looked like he was hurtin'.

Dayton won 7-2. Another good start for Josh Smith (1.91 ERA).

A six-run fourth was highlighted by a bases-loaded triple from Duran, followed by an inside-the-park HR by Devin Lohman.

All reports are saying he's fine. He caught Cueto in between innings a bit today.

Donnie Joseph just got pillaged (5 R, 2 HR in an inning). Carolina trails 7-0.

What is up with him this year?

Is he hurt? Did other teams finally figure him out? Or is it something else?

No word on anything trickling down from the Leake move.

The president of the Pensacola Baseball Club was at the Carolina/Mobile game last night with about 650 fans that traveled over with him. They all had thunder sticks! The president did an interview during the game on Mudcats radio. They're very excited about getting an AA team in there. His description of the park, facilities, and surrounding area made it sound like they are going to have a real good future there.

In spite of this team being the 2011 version of the *Bad News Bears, I'm hating to see them go.


*My apologies to the Bad News Bears

Hitters figured out that they don't need to chase Joseph's slider outside of the zone. It's a classic case of 'baseball is a game of adjustments'.

Pretty much agree with this. If he misses it is usually down. Apparently the guys at this level aren't biting like they did at other levels. When he has to pitch to them, he doesn't have overwhelming stuff. He tops out at 90-91 on the gun.
