--C Matt Wieters homered Friday, his third longball in 24 hours with the Class AAA Norfolk Tides. Wieters, the top position prospect in all of baseball, should be recalled in the next month.

--OF Nolan Reimold was in the lineup Thursday, making his major league debut less than 24 hours after being recalled from Class AAA Norfolk. Reimold started in left, batting seventh, and went 1-for-5 with his first big-league hit: a seventh-inning single.

--INF Robert Andino had to have all his gloves ready Wednesday. Andino was the lone non-catcher available on the bench, alongside Gregg Zaun, who got the night off behind the plate before flying out as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "For a couple of days there, I pretty much thought that I threw my last game. A lot of things run through your mind." -- RHP Dennis Sarfate, on his mind-set between feeling numbness in his right middle finger and the promising results that he'll return in July.
