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.
