Steve July 15, 2017 Great job by Reyes in his Wahoos debut. Longhi went on the DL. What happened? Daytona needs another starter. Varner coming off rehab assignment to join the rotation? nycdave July 15, 2017 What in the world does Alejo Lopez have to do to get bumped to Dayton? The kid can flat hit. And it’s not like we’re still looking at a SSS. Doug Gray July 15, 2017 He had a .669 OPS last season in Billings over the full year. He’s played 20 games this season, and he’s certainly hit quite well, but that is still a small sample size. Jim Delaney July 15, 2017 Nice to see heatherly pitching well he could be beating on the door to be in the top 25 rankings… DanD July 15, 2017 Also impressed with Heatherly and would like to say Packy Naughton has impressed as well. Hopefully Cash Case goes on a tear and ends the season strong. Love seeing what Fairchild is doing because there were other outfielders that I would have rather had. dbfromnva July 15, 2017 PLAYER AVG HR RBI BB SO OBP SLG OPS Drew Waters .370 2 10 6 10 .463 .609 1.072 Doug Gray July 15, 2017 OK? DanD July 15, 2017 This is the player that I would have preferred over Fairchild. MK July 15, 2017 Good to see Alexis Diaz back on the mound. The 2016 injured guys slowly but surely getting back. Next year at the time we can welcome back the 2017 guys. DaveCT July 15, 2017 Tyler Mahle up to his old tricks.
