This Week’s Top Headline

ROSENBAUM IS A ROSENBAUM IS A ROSENBAUM IS A ROSENBAUM: In 5 starts for Hagerstown, LHP Daniel Rosenbaum is 1-0 with a 1.57 ERA (5 ER/28.2 IP)…the 22-year old southpaw has struck out 25 and walked just 5 (5.0/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio)…among Single-A South Atlantic League pitchers, he ranks 5th in ERA and 7th in WHIP (0.94)…Rosenbaum was selected in the 22nd round of the 2009 Draft out of Xavier University (OH)…he is scheduled to make his next start tonight at Rome (Braves).

15-11, 3rd Place, 1.0 Game Back

HAIL TO THE NEW CHIEF: Yesterday, RHP Stephen Strasburg was promoted to Syracuse…Strasburg is scheduled to make his Triple-A debut on Friday vs. Gwinnett (Braves)…Strasburg, the top overall selection in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, went 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA (4 ER/22.0 IP) in 5 starts with Harrisburg of the Double-A Eastern League…with 27 strikeouts and just 6 walks in 22.0 innings pitched, Strasburg posted a 4.5/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and an Eastern-League best 11.05 strikeouts per 9.0 innings.

WHAT A RELIEF: Since surrendering 3 earned runs in 0.1 inning in his season debut, April 8 vs. Lehigh Valley (Phillies), LHP Atahualpa Severino hasn't allowed an earned run 13.1 innings…he has tossed 10.0 consecutive scoreless innings over his last 6 appearances beginning April 20…overall, Severino is 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA (3 ER/ 13.2 IP) in 10 appearances…right-handed hitters are just 4-for-28Read more »
