A couple of summer ‘assignments' have not been settled just yet. Pitcher Josh Johnson is considering playing for Cotuit in the Cape Cod League. And pitcher Chad Crosswhite has tentative plans to play at Danville in the C.I.L., but there is a chance he could go to the Cape as well.
Third baseman Michael Rutledge and middle-infielder Bunky Kateon will pass on the better-known leagues this time around and spend their off-season playing for summer squads in their hometown areas.
Meanwhile a number of veteran Dogs will be taking a break from the game this summer, with the blessing of their coaches. That doesn't mean they'll be lazing the off-season away entirely. Catcher Edward Easley, first baseman Brian LaNinfa, second baseman Jeffrey Rea, outfielder Matt Richardson, and starting pitcher Justin Pigott all plan to attend summer school at State.
Also, pitcher Matt Lea will now likely be spending his summer at home. The rookie had originally planned to play but the arm problem that has sidelined him since April 18 is dictating a lot of down-time instead. And outfielder Andy Rice has been booked for post-season corrective surgery on the shoulder muscle torn back in late March, which means a summer spent in rehab.
