Frias to DL for Potomac

RHP Marcos Frias was placed on the DL for Potomac. 24-year old RHP Zach Dials has been added to the P-Nats roster. Dials was signed recently as a minor league free agent after five appearances for Toronto’s Double-A team in New Hampshire. All his appearances were in relief.

    So does this mean Bronson now becomes a starter?

    I had 6SPs listed for Potomac on the Big Board. With the removal of Frias I am now down to the traditional five (which includes Bronson)

    Most likely – Bronson went nearly six innings on Tuesday, having pitched just an inning on the Friday = awfully similar to the usual routine of side sessions.

    I suspect will have a McGeary sighting in Woodbridge when his spot in the rotation rolls around.

    Does POT push Peacock forward on short rest tonight, or do they start Fabian, let him go 3 innings, then fall back on the bullpen?

    Man, it would be great to have McGeary in Woodbridge. You’d love to be able to see him in person.

    I heard about the horrible head injury Norris sustained when he was hit in the head by a fastball at the P-Nats/Salem Red Sox game tonight. Was anyone there and is there any update to his status? He seems like such a good kid and you just want him to be all right.

    Well, it shouldn’t have taken something like this, but now all those people calling the S100 a bobblehead helmet will STFU.

    News & Notes from Friday link in name. Not much else to report about Norris.

    Thanks Sue – was wondering if he was wearing the new helmet. agree wholeheartedly with your sentiment!

    The helmet is a bit silly but if it keeps everyone safe who cares?

    Saturday’s News & Notes link in name.

    Zuckerman has the latest on Norris:

    The only quibble I have is the idiotic characterization by Rizzo of a “slight” concussion, who should really know better. There is nothing “slight” about being struck in the head by an object traveling 90-plus miles an hour, and I am speaking from personal experience (yes, may explain a few things;-)

    Maxwll just appeared in today’s NATS game (won 4-3 in bottom of tenth, Willingham walkoff HR, 1st blown save by Capps). What’s the good word? Just read about Norris in today’s morning WAPO. Hope he is okay.

    Maxwell is here because they had an extra roster spot with Olsen sent to the DL. They are eventually going to need another pitcher and when they do you’ve got to expect him to get sent back down to Syracuse. Such is the life of a 5th/6th OF with options left.

    What is the current state of the catching position in the system? I know Norris is supposedly the catcher of the (immediate) future with only his defense a significant question. I know that Flores is probably not being counted on to contribute anything significant. It appears that Pudge is not going to make the West coast trip and it seems likely they DL him and add some kind of catcher. What do we have to fill in this position and what do we have elsewhere in the minors as possible prospects? The whole Flores situation seems to have wrongfooted the organization at the position and if Pudge goes down for any length of time the club will take a significant hit.

    Chances are, Maldonado will get the nod if Pudge goes on the DL for the short term. If the injury is deemed to be long term, a trade may be in order. The position is pretty thin, IMO.
