Notes: Michael Dubee was released today to make room for Jon Meloan a former Dodgers and most recently a Long Island Ducks. ... Here's some video from yesterday of a Zoilo Almonte RBI single and Melky Mesa's two-run bomb.

Update - 6:01: Craig Heyer, who threw his first sim game today on his road back from arm stiffness, said he will be active in nine days, which lines him up for July 3. How he'll be used will be interesting, he acknowledges, because all five starters in the rotation are performing well. 

"I don't expect to just get thrown back in the fire. All those guys are doing great, so we're going to see what happens. I don't have any innings built up, so I'd hate to just bump somebody from their spot and throw two innings before their scheduled six."

Here's some video of his sim game from this afternoon. 

Mike Ashmore -- I believe you know him -- is covering today's game for me. I'm here because this is what I do when I have off days. Y'all know that. I'll be in Staten Island tomorrow. That should be fun.
