Carlos Hernandez & The B Squad Fall Short; Jason Hammel Sharp

My spring player of interest, Carlos Hernandez was unimpressive today. He walked a few, gave up a few hits and gave up a few runs. If you are the third horse in a three horse race, you don't want to be putting up a line like this...

Hernandez's numbers this spring are the following: 12 IP, 11 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 5 Ks. Not bad, but not the numbers that a 28 year old, who hasn't pitched in a big league game since 2004 needs in order to make the roster of the defending AL Champs. However, Hernandez is still of use and I'll be happy to have him at Durham

One of the other horses in the race, Jason Hammel also pitched today. Hammel walked his first batter but settled down to get a few groundball outs. On the day he finished with a line of 3 IP, 2 H, O ER, 1 BB, 1 K.  Hammel is still at the top my leaderboard next to the final horse, Jeff Niemann, who pitches tomorrow behind Scott Kazmir.

Offensively, the B squad registered one run on eight hits. Reid Brignac and Michel Hernandez had two hits a piece.

DRB Site Note:  If you haven't noticed the masthead at the bottom of the page, Jason a.k.a. Sandy Kazmir is now on the DRB staff. He'll be handling some prospect stuff for us as well some other things. Welcome aboard.
