Tony Giarratano Called Up From AA, Makes Debut

Jason Smith was sent. I like this move.

Tony Giarratano made the most of his first major league game. He really caught Tram’s eye by having a great spring training, and after going a rather mediocre .253/.330/.388 for the Erie Seawolves, Giarratano went two for three and he drove in the tying run with a single. He’d later score the go ahead run on a Brandon Inge single.

Jeremy Bonderman improved to 6-3 with a decent outing. These two teams square off tomorrow in the rubber game in a go away day game.

First, I always thought the term was “get away game” or “get away day”, not “go away”… But I am known to pick nits…

Second, is anybody else wondering if Giarratano can play second base and possibly replace Infante’s 648 OPS (the lowest on the team now that Carlos Pena has been shipped off to Toledo)?

Yes, it is get away day.

Giarratano isn’t much of a slugger, so I think we’ll see him used similar to the guy he replaced (Jason Smith).

Hopefully Infante will turn things around. He showed too much last year to have this bad of a season.
