Players of the Week: Mark Holliman and Matt Maloney
The two former Rebels put up impressive weeks in Double-A ball as Holliman fired a no-hitter for the Tennessee Smokies, while Maloney went 2-0 and allowed a combined four runs over 14.2 innings for the Reading Phillies. Holliman missed a perfect game by one batter with a third-inning walk.
Two of the three big league Rebels are currently on the shelf as David Dellucci and Bobby Kielty are serving time on the 15-day and 60-day disabled lists respectively. Dellucci has a strained hamstring, and Kielty suffers from a strained left calf.
Working back to the top:
T.J. Beam and Barry Gunther have each been in Triple-A ball this season, but injuries have forced them to rehab stints in a lower level. Beam is playing for the Gulf Coast Yankees of Rookie League, while Gunther is suiting up for the Single-A San Jose Giants.
Movin' on up:
Eric Fowler was recently promoted to Double-A for the Toronto Blue Jays. The Duck Hill native picked up the win after pitching six shutout innings in his debut.
Craig Rodriguez has been assigned to the Tri-City Dust Devils and is 0-0 with a 4.15 ERA in 4.1 IP.
