Center fielder Greg Golson is not in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees lineup this afternoon against Norfolk. It’s curious that he’s getting a day off because the team doesn’t have another natural center fielder on its roster. Can’t help wondering if he might be in New York tonight.
Jesus Montero is also out of the Triple-A lineup, but it’s a day game after a night game, so keeping the starting catcher on the bench makes sense.
Without Golson in the lineup, Kevin Russo is getting his first outfield start of the season in center.
UPDATE, 12:37 p.m.: Donnie Collins is reporting that Golson is in New York waiting to be activated. My guess is that he’ll take the place of Mark Melancon, but no move has been announced.
