News and notes

  • South Bend is on a four-game winning streak entering today and has shut out its opponent in three of those four games. Today's pitcher, Wheeler, went five innings and gave up two hits in his first start for the Silver Hawks. He also had six strikeouts.
  • The TinCaps are now No. 5 in the Midwest League in hits on the season with 80, and second in home runs with nine. The high-power offense played a big role in Fort Wayne's first homestand of the season, and it's proven to be efficient, too: the TinCaps are sixth in the league in batting average (.245) and eighth in on-base percentage (.321).
  • After a sloppy relief outing Sunday, 6-foot-7 pitcher Tayron Guerrero was put on the disabled list by the TinCaps today. He appeared uncomfortable in his most recent action and walked four straight batters before being pulled. Guerrero was missing badly on throws, including a couple wild pitches, so this might explain what happened there.
  • With Guerrero out, the TinCaps have moved right-hander John Hussey to the roster. Hussey is 26 and two years removed from his last professional game.
