    John,
    I am assuming the organization has Glasnow on an innings limit. Is he getting close to it?

    • John Dreker

      There is some limit, but I’m not sure how close he is. Surprisingly, they have let him go six innings in two of his last three starts, so just going by that fact, I think he may be able to start through the end of the season. He is at 87.1 innings now, which isn’t a huge number, considering he was pitching innings last year in Fall Instructs and Extended Spring Training. Those numbers don’t show up on the stat sheet. I think it’s possible he could make all seven starts he has left, though that could put him around 120 innings, which sounds a bit high.

  • rburgh

    Strange game for Jamestown. Beat Auburn 8-4 with 7 unearned in the 9th. Justin Maffei debuted in the NYP League as a PR and C. Are they converting him to C or is this just something that happens in the low minors?

    • John Dreker

      Right now, I’m going to say it is a scoring error. He probably pinch-ran, but I doubt he stayed in at catcher. Could be wrong, but I’ll wait to see if they correct that

    • John Dreker

      Hasn’t been corrected yet, but Andrew Dennis caught the ninth inning
