TinCaps Week in review #10 6/11-6/17/11
The Fort Wayne Tin Caps continue to struggle with offensive production from the lineup. Although outfielders Rymer Liriano and Luis Domoromo continue to hit well and third baseman Jake Blackwood hovers around .300 consistently, the rest of the lineup has struggled to hit. Regular center fielder Rico Noel has hung below .200 for the season and has been placed in the temporary inactive list. Donovan Tate, finally ready to play, after rehabbing with the extended spring training camp, was sent to Eugene to work for the time being. It is hoped he will rejoin the Tin Caps after some tuning up. OF Mykal Stokes is a temporary fill in and OF Oscar Garcia should also be temporary. There should be some significant roster changes after the All Star break, coming up next week, and a realignment of the line up should be expected.
None of this detracts from the welcome improvement that has been seen in Liriano
