• Richmond put Anthony Lerew on the 15 day DL with a lower back strain.  I’m not sure if the injury is the cause of his bad start to the season or if his bad start is reason to put him on the DL.  Maybe a little R and R will help Anthony find his old stuff.
  • James Jurries returned to the Richmond Braves over the weekend.  While he played first and hit fourth, Scott Thorman moved to the outfield (both left and right).  Thorman did a little “cleanup” of his own hitting 2 homers off Josh Towers before adding a grand slam in Sunday’s game.
  • On Saturday Chuck James got up to 82 pitches giving up 3 runs on 5 hits and a walk.
  • Prospect Martin Prado is 9 for 21 since his call up to Richmond, but left Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury.  Prado has been a second baseman for his career, but is playing mostly at third so far at Richmond.
  • Myrtle Beach lefty Matt Harrison struck out 8 in 8 innings at Potomac Saturday night and earned his 7th win of the season.
  • Rejuvenated pitcher Jo-Jo Reyes lost his first game of the year giving up 6 earned runs in 4 innings of work.  Jo-Jo did strike out 5 batters.
  • Draft day is tomorrow.  I’ll put up a draft thread and give updates in the comments.  Hope you can join me.
