Jenry Mejia has a 1.16 ERA as a starter for Buffalo allowing a .181 BA as compared with .303 as a reliever. Justin Thomas is a spot starter for the Yankees and hasn't gone more than 4 IP this year. With the parade of relievers used last night, and Mejia and Thomas not lengthened out as a starters, the back half of this game could get messy.
Rodriguez makes his second start in eight days as Binghamton recovers from two doubles headers in the past week. On July 31st Rosenbaum lost to the B-Mets going 6 IP and allowing 6 hits and 3 BB. The Mets signed Andrew Carpenter and have assigned him to the Binghamton squad. He was pitching for the Blue Jays with 5.00 ERA in 9 innings of relief, after going 6-3, 3.85 for AAA Las Vegas. He spent the previous three years with Lehigh Valley and some cups of coffee with the Phillies.
Jacob DeGrom makes his FSL debut after going 6-3, 2.51 in the SAL, with 78 K to 14 BB over 89.2 IP. Stuifbergen faced St. Lucie last Sunday and look the loss, allowing 5 ER on 8 hits and 2 BB over 4 IP.
In yesterday's double header Cam Maron went 3-for-7 with a triple, a walk, and two K's. He caught the first game and was the DH in the second.
