Joe Savery (2009) – Savery started for the Triple-A squad and was solid over three shutout frames, but the team lost to the Triple-A Jays by a score of 6-1. A product of Rice University, Savery threw 50 pitches and allowed 2 hits, 3 walks, and 1 strikeout.
Michael Schwimer (2009) – Schwimer tossed two shutout innings for the Double-A squad today in the team’s 5-4 victory over the Double-A Blue Jays. He fanned three batters, while allowing four hits over his two innings of work in game one of the club’s Minor League spring schedule.
Neil Sellers (2008-2009) – Sellers, who spent the past two seasons in Reading, went 1-4 with a double and RBI, as he tries to earn a spot in Lehigh Valley for 2010. A native of Robards, Kentucky, Sellers batted an impressive .317 last season for the R-Phils, and hit 17 homers, and drove in 86 runs.
