Place was originally selected in first round of the 2006 draft by the Boston Red Sox. The 23 year-old spent parts of the past two seasons in the Eastern League with the Portland Sea Dogs and has a .234 career batting average with 47 home runs and 218 RBI over the past five seasons. The Yankees signed Place after being released by Boston during Spring Training. 
The first-place Trenton Thunder will begin a four-game series with the Reading Phillies Monday night at 7:05 PM from FirstEnergy Stadium. LHP Manny Banuelos (2-0, 2.12) gets the pearl for Trenton, while the R-Phils will counter with RHP Josh Zeid (2-3, 6.44). Tune-in to the game from Reading, PA on 91.3 WTSR-FM and on The SBLI Pre-Game Show with Hank Fuerst begins at 6:50 PM.
