postheadericon MOONS OVER MY HAMMY!

Adrian Beltre – Given the O.K. to start running the bases Monday.  Beltre is now on a pace to return by September.

Jose Constanza – Has a slight ankle sprain that he suffered during his game with the Cubs Monday night.  Its uncertain if he will need a DL stint or not, but its sounding more like he will not.

B.J. Upton – Has a right shoulder strain after crashing into the outfield wall.  Upton is listed as day to day and shouldn’t miss too much time.

Victor Martinez – Scratched from Mondays lineup with back spasms.  Vmart should be back in the lineup Tuesday, if not Wednesday.

Starlin Castro – Got a mental day off according to Mike Quade.  Another reason why Mike Quade should not be managing a big league club.  Just because some racist announcer says he’s lollygagging it doesn’t mean you need to listen to him.  Consider Mike Quade a joke.  Castro will be back in the lineup Tuesday.

Jose Reyes – Expected to being a minor league rehab stint on Thursday for Double A Binghamton.  Reyes could be back by early next week.

Michael Cuddyer – After sitting out 10 games due to a neck issue, Cuddyer goes 2 for 3 with 2 doubles and a walk.  Thank you Cuddyer for coming back and  helping my squad.

Mike Napoli – 1 for 4 with a home run and 3 RBIs.  I don’t look now but Napoli is now on an 11 game hitting streak and hitting .293 on the year with 21 home runs on the year.  Mauer? Mauer who?

Mike Carp – Saw his hitting streak of 20 games end with an 0 for 4 night.  During the streak Carp went 29 for 84 with 4 home runs and 19 RBIs.

Aramis Ramirez – 3 for 4 with a walk as he continues to kill the ball the last 2 months.  Can anyone say best 3B in the league?  Don’t let anyone tell you any differently, he certainly is.
