postheadericon MAUER GOES APE!

Joe Mauer – 6 for 8 with an RBI in the double header upping his average from 260 to 290.  That’s Mauer being Mauer, right?

Stephen Strasburg – Threw 95 MPH in a simulated game Monday.  There is a small chance that Strasburg will pitch in September, but I would not count on it unless the Nats are in contention.

Roy Hallday – Left Mondays start with heat exhaustion.  When asked if he was going to make his next start he said absolutely.  No need to worry here, move on.

David Wright – 3 for 6 with 3 singles and 3 runs scored in High – A ball.  It shouldn’t be too much longer before Wright returns.

Jason Heyward – Has a foot contusion after being hit on the foot Sunday.  Heyward is list as day to day, what else is new, hes the new glass Chipper.

Michael Brantley – 5 for 8 with an RBI and a run scored in Mondays double header.  Brantley now has 8 multi hit efforts in his last 13 starts.

Sergio Santos – Split the 9th inning with Matt Thornton.  Guillen could be re-thinking his 9th inning man now that Thornton has been pitching better.  This situation needs to be monitored closely.

Ryan Vogelsong – 6.2 IP, 0 ER, 5 K’s and now has a season ERA of 2.02.  Can someone tell me when this guy is going to crash and burn?  We have no choice but to continue to roll him out there while hes hot, but be aware that he could crash and burn soon.

Clay Buchholz – Threw from 120 feet on Monday, there is still no timetable for his return!

Aramis Ramirez – 1 for 3 with a home run.  The home run was his 17th and yup, you guessed it, he currently has the best stats of any NL 3b out there!
