5:45 PM — Rob Lyerly will miss the rest of the season after having labrum surgery. Jose Pirela, meanwhile, is heading down to Tampa to get in some at-bats…he’s likely very close to returning after suffering “concussion-like” symptoms several weeks ago.
3:00 PM — After re-doing the post-game notes from last night, I’ve got pre-game notes for you for today. Basically, just lineups…note that it’s Jose Toussen’s Double-A debut tonight, one night after Shane Brown came in to make his as a defensive replacement for Abe Almonte, who is evidently fine.
Thunder lineup: Almonte RF, Brewer LF, Murton 1B, Johnson DH, Mesa CF, Mahoney 3B, Gil C, Toussen 2B (debut), Maruszak 3B, Stoneburner P
Sea Dogs lineup: Hazelbaker RF, Vitek 3B, Linares CF, Rodriguez 1B, Tejeda LF, Brentz DH, Butler C, Gibson SS, Meneses 2B, Hernandez P
