There has to be a more artful way to phrase that title. Oh well. Salem played in the morning yesterday, now we have Portland & Worcester.

11:05 a.m.: AA - Portland (TBD) @ Somerset

11:15 a.m.: AAA - Scranton Wilkes-Barre (Beeter) @ Worcester (Whitlock + Winckowski)

7:05 p.m.: A - Salem (Ingrassia) @ Augusta

7:05 p.m.: A+ - Winston-Salem @ Greenville (Perales)

Some fun arms. It should be Bastardo for Portland.

Ha - I’m a dummy. I just responded in yesterday’s thread about Romero being almost exclusively at second base since being drafted.

5 mins later, check this and he’s starting at short for his first game of full season ball this year.

Jojo is doing Jojo things so far.

2 IP, 0 hits, 1 bb, 3 k. Will be interesting to see if they try to push him to 4 or 5 innings. He's already thrown 33 pitches through 2, so looks like he's on pace for 4.
