Recent send-downs, as of May 21 (it would appear the milb.com doesn’t update as quickly as the Major League enterprise):
Danny Valencia is batting .293 with two doubles, two home runs, and seven RBIs in 10 games with the Rochester Red Wings. More important, he’s only struck out three times in 41 at bats. He had fanned 23 times in 100 at bats for the Twins.
Michael Schwimer has three saves in five games (five innings) for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (how ironic). He’s given up but two hits, walked no one, and struck out five. It’s a marked difference from the five games he played with the Phillies in which he allowed six runs on seven hits, walking five and fanning three for an 0-1 record with one blown save.
And from TampaBayOnline comes this item about “Super” Sam Fuld:
One of the first Rays players to be placed on the disabled list this season believes he could be ready for a return to action some time in June, which would be two months sooner than initially expected.
OF Sam Fuld, who broke his right wrist during spring training, said the doctor that performed his surgery told him this week the wrist is healing nicely and that he could begin a hitting program in early June.
“What I was thinking initially was mid-August (for a return), but it might be a little sooner now,” Fuld said. “Not surprisingly the biggest test is going to come when I actually start hitting.”
