Marcum, Janssen, Richmond on the Comeback Trail

Scott Richmond started for the GCL Jays today in their Rookie league game.  He got into some trouble early, gave up a solo home run in the second, and ended up going 3 1/3 innings, striking out 5, walking one, and giving up 3 earned runs on 9 hits.  That's a lot of hits, but good to see him pitching again. 

Casey Janssen picked up the win yesterday for New Hampshire with 1 1/3 hitless innings with one walk and one strikeout. 

We covered Shaun Marcum's last start for New Hampshire (I always group he and Janssen together, maybe because they both debuted for the Jays the same year) - 4 2/3 scoreless innings, 4 Ks, 2 walks, 3 hits.  He was reportedly throwing in the mid-80s, which is good - in his Dunedin start he was in the low-80s so things are apparently progressing well.  By my calculations he is scheduled to pitch again tomorrow night for New Hampshire against Trenton.
