In his last four starts Chris Schwinden has allowed 15 runs on 23 hits over 18.2 IP, striking out 9 and walked 9. Tim Byrdak has joined the 51s after spending five weeks with the St. Lucie Mets. He replaces Pedro Feliciano and returns the Vegas pen to five lefties, because four just won’t do… Lucas Duda‘s rehab has been moved to the 51s.
Tyler Lyons has allowed 6 runs over his last 6 starts, in those 40.2 IP he has allowed 16 hits, walked 8, and struck out 37. Must be nice to not need pitching like that on the big league level.
This is the 7th game St. Lucie has had cancelled this year. OF Cory Vaughn moves up to Binghamton, Charley Thurber comes off the DL
Shawn Teufel is promoted to St. Lucie to take the roster spot opened up by Byrdak‘s promotion. Teufel has appeared in 30 games this year spread out between Binghamton, Brooklyn and Savannah.
Eric Wooten has thrown 9 shutout innings over 3 relief appearances for Charleston, striking out 7 and walking 1. He threw 7.1 innings for Tampa previously this year, striking out 12 and walking 2.
Luis Cessa has given up 28 hits in his last 19 IP (3 starts) while striking out 16 and walking 2 in those games. SAL batters have hit .284 against him this year, but he’s allowed only 17 walks to keep his WHIP under 1.30. Tim Petersen heads back to Savannah after a stint in Brooklyn where he didn’t allow a run in 9 appearances.
