Yesterday wasn’t a good day for the guys in red and white, as they fell on the strength of a milestone A-Rod homer, and lost their primary, journeyman-ish catcher, Hanigan, to a hand injury. That’s Vasquez down for the year and Hanigan for a good stretch as well if you’re keeping score on catching injuries.
The bright side? Blake Swihart, yet another catching prospect, makes his way to the bigs. Let’s see if he’s what he’s cracked up to be. Might need some offense with Miley on the mound against Eovaldi in today’s earliest game of the day.
