    Not to minimize the ongoing Nolasco Fiasco, only (only?) 6 of the 9 runs were his. The Twins would have won that game 7-6 if Swarzak would have offered relief and not given up 3 earned in 3 innings. The runs that scored with Swarzak on the mound were the winning runs for the Yankees.
    Jorge Polanco sure seems like one that should be promoted as soon as possible. He cameo on the Twins, and his performance since he has been back in Fort Meyers is certainly deserving. I hate to see anyone held back because of age. It really seems the most irrelevant factor of all.

    Need more information on this.

    He may get a promotion to AA, and with a good performance through the rest of the year, a September call up and an opportunity to earn a spot coming out of spring training. I don't expect to see him in the majors again this year

    Sounds like he's headed back to Puerto Rico to be a new daddy.

    Much better news than the "he got traded" scenario that was running through my head.

    That was my first thought, too, when I saw the headline. Then I saw it was just Seth trying to give us all heart attacks.

    I was at the Kernels game for this one, the night before too. Engelb Vielma was my favorite to watch. he crushed a triple to RF corner on Saturday, and has a great arm at short. He is tiny. Unfortunately, he came out of the game on Sunday after a strange collision with JD Williams in left field. It looked like he was holding his head. If anyone has an update on his status, that would be nice to know. It seemed like the offense really lost a spark when he came out of the lineup.

    JD Williams sure has been at low A for a long time now, and he didn't look good at the plate at all over the two games I saw. He finally got a hit late on Sunday, and that collision in the outfield with Vielma was on him. It would be nice to see him earn a promotion sooner than later, but things didn't look good this weekend and his avg sits at the Mendoza line...

    Jake Mauer said after the game that he expected Vielma would have to sit out a week, the standard 7-day DL requirement for anyone with a head injury.

    Nothing official, that I'm aware of, as of Monday night, however. Kernels had an off-day today.

    It is not lost on me that the title is "Buxton's Back" with a picture of Buxtons back, very clever.

    Buxton's hitless in his first three games after returning. One BB.
