So it seems Mark Melancon warmed up for Tampa last night but when they went to call him into the game, something happened and he didn’t pitch.
Worry not, baseball fans. He’s not injured.
Brian Cashman reports that Tampa manager Luis Sojo forgot to put Melancon’s name on the lineup card, so he couldn’t come into the game.
“The player is fine,” Cashman wrote in an e-mail.
Meanwhile, how have we gotten to the point where fans in New York are following Class A relievers? Could New York fans actually embrace the idea of developing players? It boggles the mind.
