Castillo Gets The Call: P Alberto Castillo, formerly a pitcher in the Atlantic League with the Bears, Riversharks and Road Warriors, has been called up to the Major Leagues by the Baltimore Orioles.
He had not pitched in affiliated ball since 1998, and spent four full seasons in the AL.
Gracesqui Released: You could make a case that it was Franklin Gracesqui’s poor performance in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader that truly cost the Bears the first half.
Consider the fact that he had three poor starts before that, and it’s pretty obvious what happened next.
The former Major Leaguer was released yesterday after posting an 0-4 record and 14.09 ERA. – Mike Ashmore
Hidalgo Signs: I know this has been talked about on here, but I figured it was just worth mentioning that the Long Island Ducks officially signed Richard Hidalgo today. – SS
