Shea Goodbye: According to Revs beat writer Jeff Johnson, it sounds like York INF Shea Hillenbrand won’t be returning to the club this season.
With Hillenbrand on the shelf and having oddly left the team after injuring his hamstring, Johnson writes the following:
“But while Hillenbrand offered his hitting expertise and gave York one of the purest swings the Atlantic League has ever seen, he’ll also be remembered for other things.
The way he dogged it on numerous groundouts. The time he barked at a fan who dared to boo him for his lack of hustle. And the occasion he left the Revs’ dugout with his gear in tow while York was trying to mount a rally in the late innings.”
It should be interesting to see how this plays out…
Bluefish Release Two Pitchers: The Bridgeport Bluefish have released P T.J. Tucker and P Rafael Bergstrom.
Tucker, a former big leaguer, was 3-3 with a 7.39 ERA in 34 appearances. With a WHIP over two, this move was long overdue.
Bergstrom, the ex-IBL standout, was 6-7 with a 5.73 ERA in 18 appearances for Bridgeport, including 16 starts. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him re-surface somewhere in the league, I still think he could make a good fourth or fifth starter for a club. – MA
