Notes from Down on the Farm…
- We still don’t know much else on Jeremy Hellickson’s injury other than he has officially gone on the DL. In and of itself, that means little, as we already knew Hellboy would miss one start and the minor league DL is only 7 days. [Biscuit Crumbs]
- Shawn Riggans was pulled early from his first rehab start after getting hit with a foul ball. [Biscuit Crumbs]
