-Jordy Mercer and Anthony Norman still out after their collision on Wednesday night.

-Tony Watson has made five appearances against Richmond this year, with a 1.59 ERA.  Tonight will mark Watson’s second start of the season.  He pitched three innings against Trenton on July 25th, with four runs on six hits, no walks, and two strikeouts.  I expect Jared Hughes to piggyback this start with him.

-James Skelton was promoted from Bradenton to Altoona yesterday.  Skelton made an appearance in yesterday’s game.

-I’ll be providing Twitter updates from the game, which starts in about half an hour. I’ll also be uploading pictures from the game.
