J.D. continues to hit the ball hard and Kyle Ryan looked good in out of the bullpen. I was really happy with Ryan’s performance because Ausmus had to make another early call to the pen and Ryan delivered 4.2 solid innings. Ryan and VerHagen just might be long relief options for 2016.
Andrew Romine is a solid utility player that can flash leather at any position and can swing the bat just enough. I haven’t said enough about him this year.
I’m not sure if anybody else noticed but Nick Castellanos has similar offensive numbers to Minnesota’s All-Star second baseman Brian Dozier. Nick “The Quick” is hitting, .250, with 15 hrs and 68 rbis. Dozier is hitting .239, with 27 hrs and 70 rbis. The homer are way higher for Dozier but he only has two more runs batted in. I know you expect more power from third base but I I couldn’t help it, the numbers just struck me as interesting.
