Milledge has been working back to full health after breaking his right index finger and having surgery back in mid-May. He just began his rehab work with the Gulf Coast League Nats over the weekend, playing his third game down there on Monday. He'll continue rehabbing in the GCL before joining Triple-A Indianapolis in seven to 10 days to continue his rehab work.
so he will be back up in AAA in a week or so.

then he will just have to wait it out until there is a spot for him, which would mean Steve Pearce or Garrett Jones would get sent back down. OR, Adam LaRoche is traded making Pearce and/or Jones the starting first baseman

Tony Sanchez 1-5 in first Low A WV game, had a RBI also

Pedro Alvarez is 3 for 25 in AA Altoona but 2 of those three have been Home Runs and has 5 RBIs. Has struck out 10 times in 25 at bats.

Lastings Milledge who was on rehab in the Gulf Coast League is 1-5 in three games with a home run being his only hit

Brad Lincoln got beat up a little in his second start at AAA, only going 3.2 innings, giving up 6 hits and 3 runs.

The Lincoln performance becomes VERY alarming. I guess he might just have had a bad night.

Yeah, he had an occasional start like this at Altoona. He's been good at reedeming himself.

I haven't really been following Lincoln that much. What kind of pitcher do you think he'll be? A true strikeout ace or a another Paul Maholm who only strikes out a few per 9.

He struck out 65 batters in 75 innings in AA this year. from all the scouting reports ive read on him, he has a mid 90s fastball with plus movement to go with a real hard breaking curveball. that combo could lead to quite a bit of K's if he can locate his pitches

anyone see the game tonight? how did Hanrahan pitch? Saw he pitched an inning, gave up a walk and had a K but how did his control look?

well its looking like from this point out any player we trade, it HAS to be for pitching. Maholm isnt cutting it right now. Duke is really the only one of our 'top' pitchers that is performing. The other is in AAA.
