    Saturday 5/21/2011 minor league update

    Dontrelle takes the mound in Norfolk. The D-Train returns after missing his last start due to a groin injury.

    Thompson looks to get the Mudcats two wins in a row for the first time in a long time.

    J.C. Sulbaran faces off against Modesto

    and last but not least Josh Smith gets the nod tonight in Dayton.


    In other news, Mudcats first baseman Naftali Soto was activated off the 7-day disabled list. Outfielder Kyle Day was released to make room.
    Also, Blaze right-handed pitcher Ruben Medina was placed on the 7-day disabled list yesterday.

    Play ball!

    So campbell's day off yesterday was a rest day then, no promotion?

    Not that I've read. I haven't talked to anyone but I don't think anything's gong on.

    Dontrelle faces off against Rick VandenHurk. Two former Marlin teammates. I wish I were there.

    Also just read on Baseball America that catcher Chase Weems was released sometime this week. I don't believe I've seen it posted on here yet.

    Rojas was just popped in the jaw trying to backhand a grounder. He stayed in the game though. 2-0 Lookouts top 5

    Wow. Then Jas-Man just made a diving stop up the middle and flipped it to Puckett to end the inning.

    Bats get 1 run in the 1st.

    I'm not going to be able to cover the Bats game, if someone else would like to step in.

    Cinreds: Since Rojas started playing in the States, we've been hearing that his glove is big-league, arguably the best in the system. Have you seen enough to agree or disagree with that?

    I like him. But a scout wasn't that big of a fan. I can't remember exactly what he said, but I believe it was his defensive approach. Maybe like how he charges a ball or sits back on it. I can't remember which one.

    The VSL Reds won today 14-4. Seventeen-year-old SS Geraldo (not Humberto) Valor, who yesterday had three hits and some extra bases, today went 2 for 4 with a 2B.

    In the FWIW category, a lefty reliever for the Reds named Joher Cardera, who pitched a perfect eighth inning, is 16.

    Interesting. First caveat I've heard on Rojas--other than his hitting, of course. Thanks.
