In the last two days, the Bradenton Marauders have placed two pitching prospects on the 7-day injured list. Brennan Malone left his outing on Wednesday with the trainer after only five pitches. The next day Anthony Solometo left after two batters reached in the third inning, throwing 39 pitches up to that point. Malone went on the injured list yesterday and Solometo followed him today. Xavier Concepcion, who pitched six early-season games with a 7.27 ERA in 8.2 innings before heading to the injured list, returned to Bradenton to take one of those spots. The other has yet to be filled.
Malone just made his debut less than two weeks ago when he pitched for the FCL Pirates. He pitched twice for Bradenton before going on the IL. In those three games he allowed four runs in five innings, with seven strikeouts.
Solometo has a 2.08 ERA in 13 innings, with 13 strikeouts and a 1.08 WHIP in four appearances. In his previous outing before leaving early, he pitched four no-hit innings.
If any more moves are announced, we will update this post.
