Mark Melancon through two games for Trenton: 5 2 1 1 0 8.
At some point Chase Wright (6-1, 2.70) has to get a chance at Scranton, no? I realize Mike Lowell’s homer just landed, but he is left-handed.
Jason Jones (7-0, 2.13) can’t be long for the Eastern League, either.
Here comes Austin Jackson (.275/.371/.409).
Austin Romine (.350/.375/.450) and Jesus Montero (.307/.350/.466) are making the Yankees look pretty smart down in Charleston. I’m going to try and catch the RiverDogs when they come to Lakewood in August. Very, very interesting bunch.
Jesus is third in the SAL with 36 RBI.
A reader from Cancun, Mexico, wrote to tell me about a RHP named Alfredo Aceves. He was 4-1, 2.11 in eight starts for Tampa. 47 innings, 32 hits (one HR), 8 walks and 37 Ks. Pretty impressive. He’s not in the media guide, so I believe he’s a recent signing. He either is with Trenton or on the way. Anybody know?
I’ll post more when I find out more about him.
UPDATE, 4:45 p.m.: An alert reader found this story on Aceves.
