News and notes

  • Weickel was added to the Fort Wayne roster this morning after an extended spring training stint. He was a supplemental draft pick and last pitched with the Padres' Arizona League affiliate.
  • Despite a pair of losses in the past two games, the TinCaps are averaging 6.2 runs per outing. The high-power offense has suffered in the past two games from some early exits from starters and a lack of solid relief. In the past two games, Fort Wayne gave up eight and 11 runs, respectively.
