Notes from Game 43

Here's today's lineup:

Christian - DH
Krum - CF
Romine - C
Laird - 3B
Brewer - LF
Vechionacci - 1B
Gonzalez - RF
Nunez - SS
Snyder - 2B

The big news of the day here involves two injuries to pretty significant players. Starter Jeremy Bleich is scheduled for surgery on his left labrum, meaning his season is over. Although he was promoted before the injury was discovered, Hector Noesi will essentially take Bleich's spot in the rotation.

Bleich was 3-2 with a 4.79 ERA over 41 1/3 innings. He also issued an unsightly 28 walks during that time. He left before the Thunder's last road trip, complaining of shoulder stiffness. The team sent him back to Florida, where was he checked out and the decision to have surgery was made.

Also, David Adams was placed on the disabled list with a right ankle sprain. The diagnosis seems to be 2-3 weeks, but nobody would be surprised if it lasted longer. He was replaced on the roster by Kevin Mahoney, the former Canisius star and 2009 MAAC Player of the Year.
