Ducks Lose Leek: The Long Island Ducks have lost P Randy Leek for the second time this year. According to a source, Leek has been signed by the Toronto Blue Jays organization and will be assigned to Triple-A.
Leek was 5-1 with a 2.29 ERA since returning to the team in late July. He made six starts since his return, and allowed only eight runs in 47 innings of work.
Road Warriors News: I spoke to Road Warriors manager Jeff Scott before today’s game in Somerset, and he said that the team has brought in P Jose Espinal. Espinal is a righty, and was originally supposed to start tonight, but missed his flight. He may still start in this series, likely Saturday.
Kieran Mattison will get the nod tonight.
Also, Mike Garcia has gone home. The former big leaguer simply wasn’t ready to pitch again, and will likely serve as a pitching coach in the Dominican Republic. – Mike Ashmore
