Maybin to the Big Easy!
trip to the desert has not been much fun for the Z’s. The Isotopes have won the first three games
of the series and attempt for the sweep on Monday afternoon. The Z’s scheduled starter for the Monday
contest John Koronka has been scratched. Instead he will start for the Florida Marlins
tomorrow in Milwaukee. Congrats to John on the promotion!
Z’s will start Willie Collazo instead. It’s his first start of the season. Willie made 16 starts for the Z’s last year
and four starts in ’07. Collazo has
represented the Zephyrs in the All-Star Game for the past two years.
is on the way! The Zephyrs will get 22
year old outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Marlins. The Marlins number one prospect was batting
.202 in 26 games with Marlins this season.
He played in the MLB Futures game the past two seasons and was
outstanding a year ago in Double A.
Z’s added a pitcher on Sunday. RH Jay Buente appeared in 12 games this
season in relief for the Suns. He had no record and a 2.12 ERA.
Z’s have made 14 roster moves this week.
The Z’s have Tim Wood and Jai Miller on the DL with oblique
strains. Both are elgible to come off later
this week, but will likely miss more time.
Gaby Sanchez was placed on the DL with a right knee MCL strain and he is
in Florida and will miss a minimum of
a few weeks.
