So today I have only two games for you, with New Hampshire and Lansing getting their games postponed. This means that Lansing will have a doubleheader today, but no such thing seems to be scheduled for NH. On to the action:

The Las Vegas 51s:

Brett Lawrie: 1-for-4, strikeout. .442/.500/.674

Eric Thames: 2-for-4, double, triple, strikeout. .400/.479/.675

David Cooper: 2-for-4, double, strikeout. .375/.444/.550

Ryan Shealy: 2-for-4, 2 doubles. .250/.364/.321 (at 31 years old he's just filler, especially with Cooper doing so well I'd imagine Shealy is pretty low on the depth chart)

Brian Jeroloman: 1-for-3. .238/.304/.238

Mike MacDonald: 9 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K. He's 29, so not a prospect, but good performance from him.

The Dunedin Blue Jays:

Brad McElroy: 4-for-5, home run. .333/.474/.600 (He'll be 25 in a week and has hit only against RHP as a lefty)

Brad Glenn: 2-for-5, home run, strikeout. .342/.390/.711

A.J. Jimenez: 3-for-4, 2 doubles, strikeout. .310/.355/.483

Kenny Wilson: 1-for-3, walk, triple. .333/.379/.556

Ryan Tepera: 3 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. Apparently sharing starts with Nestor Molina while the latter gets stretched out from a reliever to a starter. Speaking of the guy who sounds like he should be catching:

Nestor Molina: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K. 54.5% groundballs, so another promising outing for the Molina-who-is-not-a-catcher. According to Jays Journal he throws a fastball, cutter, splitter and changeup. Which is a weird combination since a splitter and changeup seem to act in the same way.
