    In any event, it'll be nice to see Stewart and Eades pitching down the road, if I wanted to see them.

    Lo
    Im almost shocked that Malinowski didn't make the roster. Anyword on these guys Seth?
    Robb is hurt.

    I think it will be interesting to see if Malinowski does some starting this season for Elizabethton after being pretty solid out of the bullpen there last year. He could also be one of the first called up.

    Lo, I'm not sure. He was pretty good last year too, but he begins the season in EST.

    The guys in EST, pitching-wise, that surprised me most are Ethan Mildren and Derrick Penilla. I think those two should be next up.

I first saw him pitch this spring, and I liked what I saw, but for some weird reason in the back of my mind, I have 2 words: Jose Mijares...
    I'd be quite happy if he had a Mijares like career. He was a pretty good reliever for us for a while. The fact that we got a decent prospect for Butera still surprises me.

    Penilla has a few GCL innings and most in relief under his belt. He has to be E-town bound...

    .
    Malinowski struck out a guy an inning as a 19 year old in GCL and did basically the same as a 20 year in E-town. He had 2.01 ERA in the bullpen.

    He's from Minnesota and he's 21. My head is full of questions to not see him on.


    Have you seen him pitch? Does he has an attitude problem, something wrong with his delivery?

    Its possible there is information on
    Malinowski I don't have. But to leave him off the roster while non prospect guys like like Powell or Muren repeat makes no sense.

    Is it possible the Malinowski family bought a car from Mauer Chev, had some problems, filed a complaint with the BBB and now he is being punished?

    Do we know the order of the rotation?
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Tweeted by Kernels play by play guy, Morgan Hawk:

    Morgan Hawk@Morgan_Hawk57 mins@CRKernels rotation for opening series with the @LumberKings: THUR: Aaron Slegers, FRI: Randy Rosario, SAT: Ryan Eades, SUN: Kohl Stewart

    They have a travel day on Monday as they head to Great Lakes. Pitching coach Ivan Arteaga said last night they'd use a 5-man rotation the first couple weeks with the fifth and sixth starters (Jorge and Sulbaran) piggy-backing to split game 5.

    Of course, with the weather forecast for Thursday and Friday in CR, this is all very much "tentative."

    The way things are looking, you might have been able to see the entire 4 game series by getting here Saturday morning. Thursday looks like rain/low 40s. Friday looks like rain-snow/upper 30s.

    Since Clinton doesn't return to CR again in the first half of the season, they'll likely try to do whatever they can to get all 4 games played. Otherwise, they'd probably have to play postponed games at Clinton in a few weeks.

    Hope you can make it down here at some point.
