News and Notes from Everett
The weather here in Everett has been amazing for the first four games of this series – in fact, I haven’t seen a cloud so far (outside of those hanging over the Cascade Mountains to the east). Temperatures have been in the 70s (compared to the high 9os in Boise), dipping into the low 60s during the latter innings – it has been near perfect.
Some News and Notes from around the organization…with the Kosuke Fukudome trade two days ago, former Hawk Tyler Colvin was recalled by the Cubs, while at AAA Iowa, Welington Castillo went on the disabled list, allowing another former Hawk, Steve Clevenger, to earn a promotion to AAA. At AA Tennessee, Dallas Beeler has been put on the 7-Day DL, while Brent Ebinger made his second trip up to Sevier County. David Macias was sent to A Daytona (with Dustin Harrington being the odd man out, earning him a trip back here to Boise).
On the big league front – Jerry Blevins has been called up by the A’s for the fourth time this season, while Jose Ceda was recently sent down from Florida to AAA New Orleans for a third time. Also, Sergio Mitre’s season looks done in New York, as the Yankees put the 2001 Hawk on the 60-Day DL.
Down in the desert – Tyler Gretzky (7th Round) and Darien Martin (13th Round) have signed, while lefties Andrew McKirahan (Texas) and Sheldon McDonald (U. British Columbia) have seen game action and could see a trip to Boise to provide some help in the pen in the near future.
