3:45 PM — Spoke to Mark Newman for a few minutes…Newman is always gracious with the media, and this was no different.

Newman told me — and John Nalbone first reported this — that David Adams has a chip fracture in his foot, something that didn’t come up until a third MRI.

“Nobody saw it,” he said.

Newman also said that Damon Sublett is going to get some more at-bats in the GCL, and when he’s ready, “he’ll come back here.”

And now, the disappointment for Thunder fans…holding your breath to see Manny Banuelos or Dellin Betances with Trenton this season?  Newman says you can exhale.

“They’re not going anywhere, they’re staying there,” he said.

Newman did not, at this time anyway, anticipate anyone from Tampa joining the Thunder roster for the remainder of the season.

2:45 PM — Not a whole lot going on here just yet.  Mark Newman is still here and is out in right field working with some of the pitchers.  I hope to speak with him later.

Also, the next two days are Trentonian days for me, so I won’t have any in-game updates until Sunday, when Adam Warren takes on Kyle Drabek.  Seriously, you can’t miss that one, that’s a stellar matchup.

    I have been meaning to ask since the all star break: Why is it that the Thunder are allowed to carry a 25 man roster? They have 8 relievers. Kontos isn’t listed as a Rehab guy, right?

  2. richard Says:

    Berkman for Melancon and Paredes.

    Christian Garcia at the Yanks GCL game,rumor has it he may be back.

  3. thunderbaseball Says:

    Thunder only have 24. 13 pitchers, 11 position players.
