-Ronald Uviedo made a rehab appearance, pitching 1.1 innings with three runs on five hits, two strikeouts and no walks. It was the first appearance in almost a month for Uviedo. I added the GCL results to Uviedo’s page, but not to the game log.
Other Game Notes: Neil Walker went 1 for 5 in a rehab appearance. Second baseman Greg Picart went 3 for 3 in his season debut for the Spikes. Picart hit .274 for West Virginia. He’s 23 years old, so pretty much a non-prospect. Rinku Singh allowed three runs on three hits, with two walks and a strikeout, recording just one out.
