    I heard the police approached the pitching mound and arrested DRH for impersonating a pitcher in last night's game.

    Juan Duran went 3-for-5 with a HR (#3) and 3 RBI. Duran is hitting .286/.353/.429 - .782 OPS in 77 atbats in July. Eye popping numbers? No. Encouraging? Yes. He's showing signs of progressing. He's extremely talented and has significant upside but he's also extremely raw and will require patience.

    Billy Hamilton had another good game as well as he went 3-for-5 and stole his 16th base. Hamilton is now hitting .315/.373/.438 - .811 OPS in 146 atbats this season.

    From Baseball America:

    Considering Travis Wood's success in the big leagues as a fill-in for Homer Bailey and Edinson Volquez's return to the Reds' rotation, LHP Matt Maloney, 26, is further from a big league starting job now than he was at the beginning of the season. That seems almost unfair, as Maloney pitched well in two big league starts this season (after a successful September callup last year). But all that he can do for now is dominate the International League, something he's been doing a pretty good job of all season. In two starts this week, Maloney went 2-0, 0.66 for Triple-A Louisville, lowering his ERA for the season to 2.91

    Also, Perez, who was injured after crashing into the outfield wall yesterday, was not in the line up today will be placed on the 7-day disabled list.
    I just recently posted a link to an article that mentioned Ceda. He's a legit prospect. The guy is freaking huge--listed at 275 pounds!
    Jose Ceda, RHP, Marlins (AA)—Ceda was acquired from the Cubs for Kevin Gregg prior to the ’09 season and was tabbed as Florida’s closer of the future. He put up some silly numbers in the low minors, like allowing just 14 hits in 46 1/3 innings in Low-A in 2007.
    Ceda got sidetracked by arm problems as soon as he joined his new organization in 2009, however. He would miss the entire year and, like Banuelos, the opening part of 2010.
    The 23-year-old is finally back, though, and he’s still throwing triple-digit bullets and wipeout sliders. He’s allowed just nine hits and two runs in 18 Double-A innings, striking out 28 batters.
    Ceda, who is built like Jonathan Broxton and has similar stuff, just needs to throw strikes. He’s walked just eight batters in 18 innings this year, which is pretty good for a pitcher with a history of control problems who missed over a year. As long as he can keep his walks to about one every two innings, Ceda should be an intimidating closer for Florida as soon as April 2011.
