Webb to Frederick. Awesome. I'm going to the game tonight to see Bundy but seeing Webb in addition tonight is a nice bonus. Very cool.

Very happy to see Webb at Frederick. Can actually go see him play now without driving two hours.

More moves:

Trent Mummey placed on DL
Travis Adair placed on DL


Mummey cannot catch a break... Really feel bad for the guy. He's a hard worker and gamer, but just cannot stay healthy. He's so talented, but these injuries are severely holding him back.

He reminds me of Val Majewski. Lots of talent. Lots of injuries.

I'm at the game in frederick so I'll be posting some updates tonight. I'm told by some here at the park that the radar is about 3 mph slow so keep that in mind.

Bundy looked ok in the first inning. All three outs were decently hit balls to the outfield. The first of which was a hard hit line out to left. He threw mostly fastballs ranging from 90 to 94 and he threw one exceptional curveball that just missed the black of the plate.

Also Webb isn't in the staring lineup. Guess he couldn't get here in time? The word is that both Petersen and Duquette made it though.

Yea probably. I think there is a very strong chance he is moved up after tonight.

2nd inning wasn't as good. He's stuck to the fastball almost exclusively and he doesn't seem to be fooling many people. He gave up three doubles to lead off the inning. His curveball is very sharp though and his first K that was on a 93mph fastball was set up by some solid curveballs.

Thanks for the updates.
