Sprained/strained wrist. It happened during the game he last pitched. Initial reports were that they thought he'd still be able to make his next start ... apparently not.

He should be able to come back in 10 days with no rehab, I’m thinking.

Right. One missed start.

Stewart is scheduled to start for Rochester tonight, Romero on Saturday, and Littell on Sunday.

 

Take your pick among the last 2.

Easy one. Romero. $20 says he's up Sunday to start and either Drake is gone or, please let it be true, Morrison is gone.

Sounds like it will be Kohl Stewart. How about that.

Wow, you are right. He will get the 40-man spot vacated by Rodney. Should be interesting.

Wait. So they managed to figure out a way to make me want to watch another game this season.

 

Well played, Falvey.

I’ll take that $20!

I was just thinking this exactly. I was just going to post this same thought in another thread.

Really dont understand keeping Gonsalves down any longer, even though he doesn't match up for this weekend. Let him get his feet wet! He might have a rough first outing or two, but so what if he does? He's one of our best pitching prospects. Let him gain some experience.

Romero should be up too. I agree with a 6 man rotation at this point.

Very aggressive and surprising on Stewart! Unexpected! But I love the move! I love the challenge! Still doesn't excuse Gonsalves still not getting up here ASAP.

Report: Adalberto Mejia sidelined because of nerve traction injury

 

 

Mejia was diagnosed with a nerve traction injury above his left elbow and will undergo more tests, according to the Pioneer Press. This is not an ulnar nerve injury so that’s the good news.

Mejia originally landed on the disabled list on Friday because of a left wrist strain that forced him to leave Tuesday’s game against Cleveland. It turned out to be more than that.

Mejia is 7th on the team in bWAR this year after appearing in just five games.

 

He is sure to pass Dozier for the year should he ever return (1.2 v. 1.0 bWAR).
