    Written by DocShorebird

    When I arrived, I was told that there had been four releases. By the time line-ups were posted, there were four more releases. Their names had to be scratched off of the line-up cards. Released today were David Baker (p), Matt Bywater (P), Cameron Coffey (P), Adam Davis (C), Kevin Dultz (C), Dudley Leonora (IF), Tim Smith (OF) and Eric Wooten (P).

    The Twins catcher Joe Mauer was batting for their AAA team today.

    Chris Pettit hit a HR for Norfolk and Jason Esposito hit a HR for Bowie. There may have been others that I didn?t see.

    Henry Urrutia is still getting the rust off in simulated game batting practice.
