Notes from Down on the Farm…
- Matt Joyce has missed the last two games with a tight hamstring but is expected to be in the lineup today. [Triangle Offense]
- *Yawn* Desmond Jennings (above) is once again on the weekly “Prospect Hot Sheet.” [Baseball America]
Should we start charging Jennings rent for being a regular tenant here on Hot Sheet? Phone lines are open. The guy just keeps on tearing through the Southern League, with his latest escapade starting last Friday with a five-hit game that included three runs scored and a double. And get this: He’s hitting .468/.526/.596 (22-for-47) in May.
- Elliot Johnson’s stay on the DL is going to be extended as he will need surgery on his broken hand. [Watching Durham Bulls Baseball]
