Notes from Down on the Farm…
- Jeremy Hellickson has been promoted to triple-A and will start on Friday. No word yet on who will replace Hellboy in the Montgomery rotation. [The Heater]
- So much for those rumors that Wade Townsend had retired. Townsend started yesterday for the GCL Rays and threw 1 innings, walking 1 and striking out 1. [Rays Prospects]
