Game 76: Pre-Game Notes (Hughes Official For Wednesday)

7:00 PM — Spoke to Grant Duff today…he said he’s feeling good and should be back in a week or so.  Just some minor shoulder discomfort.

Also, I’m on Trentonian duty tonight, so my updates will be Twitter-only.  Loyalty to the paycheck and such.  I did speak to Chase Whitley and Josh Romanski, and you will see more of those quotes shortly…aside from what pops up in the paper.

6:10 PM — Fernando Hernandez called up to Triple-A Scranton.  Chase Whitley is active, Josh Romanski is not…Romanski will pitch out of the bullpen, despite having started all season for Tampa.

4:50 PM — Lineups…

3:55 PM — As I reported, Phil Hughes will be rehabbing in Trenton on Wednesday…it’s now official.  Get your tickets here…12:05 PM start.

3:30 PM — Josh Romanski and Chase Whitley are here, both called up from High-A Tampa.  Trenton was at 24 players before those moves, so two players need to come off.  I will get you those moves.

Romanski had made 13 starts for High-A Tampa, and went 6-5 with a 2.99 ERA.  In 69 1/3 innings, he walked 14 and struck out 51.

Whitley appeared in 23 games for Tampa in relief and went 0-1 with six saves and a 1.68 ERA.  In 48 1/3 innings, he walked 10 and struck out 40.

    Interesting about Romanski.
    Could be on fast track NY LOOGY role?

    I’d have to see how he does first…but I’m not sure. I don’t know how seriously the org. takes him.
