Memorial Day Update

The Rainiers complete the Vegas series with a 12:05 game today (850 AM; Tacoma has a chance to win a series on the road – a win today will do it. RHP David Pauley (0-3, 3.38) starts for Tacoma against Las Vegas LHP Brad Mills (4-3, 4.73).

Tacoma beat Las Vegas yesterday, 9-7. The Rainiers scored six runs in the top of the first inning and then played hang-on baseball. Guillermo Quiroz, Brad Nelson, and Greg Halman each homered.

The remainder of this blog has been Vegased out, and it will not be made up. Regular blog continues on Tuesday – travel schedule permitting.

    Bridgeport Bluefish Sign Wily Mo Pena
    By Tim Dierkes [May 31 at 10:06am CST]
    The Atlantic League’s Bridgeport Bluefish signed outfielder Wily Mo Pena on Saturday, according to the team. Pena, 28, had been released by the Mets about a year ago after posting a .276/.296/.414 line in 152 Triple A plate appearances. Pena’s new team features plenty of familiar names, such as Brian Barton, Denny Stark, Jorge Julio, Antonio Alfonseca, Tike Redman, Adam Greenberg, and Esteban Yan.

    Pena was once very highly regarded as a power hitter. He has three appearances on a Baseball America Top 100 Prospects list, once for the Yankees and twice for the Reds. He was still an interesting player upon being dealt to the Red Sox for Bronson Arroyo in ’06 and to the Nationals the following year. Shoulder surgery and a $2MM salary led to Pena’s release by the Nats in March of ’09.
