Lansing Recap
The entire Midwest league was off on Monday

Look Ahead

BUF - Buffalo continues at home against Norfolk (BAL). The starter is TBD. By my count, it should be Chad Jenkins, though Randy Wolf is also due.
NH - New Hampshire takes on Trenton (NYY). Michael Lee takes the hill
DUN - Dunedin will look to get some revenge on Daytona (CIN) at home. Luis Santos makes the start
LAN - Lansing starts a series at Lake County (). Chase Mallard starts
