Carmen Angelini was demoted to Extended Spring Training and Jose Pirela was put on Charleston's roster to play shortstop. Angelini was abysmal in the field, racking up 18 errors and was hitting under The Mendoza Line. Hopefully he'll get it together in the next few weeks.
Scranton was off, as was the entire International League. Trenton won, with Christian Garcia finally getting off The Pavano List and having a decent first outing. He didn't allow a run in 4.1 innings, but walked 3 and Garcia's velocity topped out at 91.
Tampa got rained out again, while Charleston won.
