Here are the day’s notes:
- Two roster clearing moves, per Matt Kardos: RHP Branden Pinder has been released and RHP Dillon McNamara has been traded to the Giants for … something. Not sure what. Probably cash. Pinder had allowed just one run (unearned) in 11.2 innings back from Tommy John surgery.
- 3B Miguel Andujar is away from Triple-A Scranton because he’s about to become a dad. He’s currently in New York with his girlfriend, who will soon give birth, reports D.J. Eberle. Congrats to them.
Triple-A Scranton (2-1 win over Charlotte, walk-off style)
- 3B Tyler Wade: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K, 1 SB
- CF Jake Cave: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K
- DH Mike Ford: 1-4, 1 RBI, 1 K — walk-off single
- RF Billy McKinney: 0-3, 2 K
- LF Mason Williams: 0-3 — threw a runner out at second
- RHP Chance Adams: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 12/1 GB/FB — 64 of 95 pitches were strikes (67%) … only his second career start with zero strikeouts, and the first only last an inning due to rain … the ground balls are really good though
