AAA: Buffalo Bisons (52-54) @ Louisville Bats (40-67) 7:05
LHP Garrett Olson 4-6, 4.98 vs. RHP Tim Gustafson 3-3, 5.11
The Bisons rotation looks a lot different without Hefner and Harvey, and will turn to Garrett Olsen. He beat Louisville in late June, going 6.1 allowing 3 ER on 7 hits and 3 BB.
Robert Carson and Mike Nickeas join the Bisons roster, while Blaquierre is disabled and Germen sent back to AA.
AA: Portland SeaDogs [BOS] (47-58) @ Binghamton Mets (48-55) 5:35
LHP Drake Britton 2-3, 4.75 vs. RHP Cory Mazzoni 3-3, 3.50
RHP Mike MacDonald 1-0, 4.50 vs. LHP Darin Gorski 5-5, 4.13
Cory Mazzoni was activated last night before the rainout, and will get the ball along with Darin Gorski for tonights AA twinbill. Adam Kolarek was promoted to AA. He had posted a 1.65 ERA and allowed just 53 baserunners in 49 IP in the FSL. Eric Turgeon has been released.
A+: Lakeland Flying Tigers [DET] (17-16) @ St. Lucie Mets (15-19) 6:30 ET
RHP Warwick Saupold 0-0, 0.00 vs. LHP Angel Cuan 5-7, 3.49
Logan Verrett has been promoted to St. Lucie on left handed reliever moving day in the Mets system, and as a right handed starter he’s likely to help begin a shakeup of the St. Lucie pitching staff. Yohan Almonte has been starting on the same day as Verrett and is a candidate to move to the pen.
A: Savannah SandGnats (15-18) @ Rome Braves [ATL] (20-14) 7:00
LHP Jim Fuller 3-2, 4.29 vs. LHP Fabian Williamson 0-2, 3.38
Six days ago Jim Fuller held Rome scoreless over 6 IP, allowing 1 hit and 2 BB. The Gnats hit Williamson for 4 runs over 4.1 IP in his last start five days ago.
SSA: Brooklyn Cyclones (23-15) @ Batavia Muckdogs (19-18) 7:05
RHP Luis Cessa 2-1, 2.93 vs. RHP Joe Cuda 3-0, 3.14
After an 11 am game yesterday, the Cyclones stay in Batavia for a night game tonight, makes sense… Luis Cessa is 16th in the NYPL in ERA, in what has been a pitching strong league so far this year. Matt Bowman has followed Cessa regurally. His record is 1-2, with a 4.35 ERA over 10.1 IP allowing 11 base runners and striking out 11.
R: Bristol White Sox (9-23) @ Kingsport Mets (11-22) 7:00
RHP Euclides Leyer 0-4, 5.56 vs. RHP Jon Gant 1-2, 7.94
