Mejia makes his second start for the Bisons tonight and his fifth overall in the minors in 2012. In his last start, Mejia went six innings and allowed two runs on two hits. With the state of the big league bullpen, it would not surprise me if Mejia is contributing in the pen sooner than later.
SS Ruben Tejada joins the Bisons today in hopes of a big league return by the end of the week.
OF Matt Tuiasosopo (man that’s tough to type!) has 17 RBI in his last 18 games. Since May 4, he is hitting .311 (32-103) with six doubles and five home runs in 30 games.
A+: St. Lucie Mets (44-12) vs. Tampa Yankees (NYY) (24-32) – 6:30LHP Chase Huchingson (5-4, 3.14) vs. LHP Matt Tracy (0-1, 1.25)
After a few bumpy starts, the lanky lefty got back on track his last time out. Opponents are hitting just .219 off Huchingson for the year with 49 strikeouts in 51.2 innings. He’s walked at least four batters in five of his ten appearances this year.
