Game 31: Pre-Game Notes

5:55 PM — A few things…Craig Heyer is set to pitch Thursday, and Igawa stays in the rotation for Friday.

Damon Sublett has been throwing sides lately.  Doesn’t sound like it’s anything too serious in terms of a conversion to pitcher, but it’s certainly noteworthy.

And…add this to the story queue (see: Norton, Tim and Sanchez, Tony)…I spoke to Manny Banuelos about how he learned the English language.  On-field stuff has been hammered to death with him…so I figured why not.

4:05 PM — In the “let’s guess Betances’ pitch count” game for today, keep in mind that he threw 73 pitches his last time.  He may go…gasp, dare I say, 80 today?

3:45 PM — Kei Igawa pitched Like a Bosh on Sunday…no word on if he’ll start again on Friday.

Lineups are in…

2:45 PM — Heard from Alan Horne today. The 2007 Eastern League Pitcher of the Year is now ahead of schedule and is scheduled to face hitters for the first time tomorrow in extended spring training. He anticipates getting into an extended spring game as early as next week, and he’ll likely stay there until his pitch count gets built up. Horne is very optimistic and says he feels very good.

More pre-game notes when I get to the ballpark…
