MINOR LEAGUE NEWS
FAIREL HAS STREP
Lynchburg’s lefty ace Matt Fairel has been diagnosed with strep throat but is not expected to miss his next start…he’ll be treated with medication and an endless supply of popsicles and milkshakes.
Dayton catcher Kevin Coddington last night was diagnosed with a grade 2 concussion after being struck on the head with a batter’s follow-through swing. He’s expected to miss 3-5 days.
“He pitched very, very well. I don’t think we had very good at-bats, but you have to give him a lot of credit. He was aggressive. When he needed to, he made us look bad.” – Louisville manager Rick Sweet on Toledo’s Armando Galarraga (7ip, 3h, 0r, 0bb, 6k). (Louisville Courier-Journal)
“We battled back and put ourselves in position to win the game. We kept swinging the bat and that’s all you can do….The bullpen was good…There were a lot of good things. We’re playing a good team over there, but a lot of good things happened.”
– Carolina manager David Bell following yesterday’s loss to Tennessee.
