Eduardo Perez, a switch-hitting first baseman from Venezuela, who has been the main man in the Loons attack all season, has been suspended indefinitely for violation of team policy. He takes a .326 average to the sidelines with 10 home runs and 43 RBi so his is a bat the team sorely needs. But rules are rules and Perez is out.
His place in the lineup has been taken by James Peterson. Peterson had been a first baseman when he turned pro but was switched to the outfield. Now he's back where he started.
The spot on the roster was filled with the activation of Parker Brooks,who is listed as a catcher but who can play just about every position on the field.
Ironically the Loons began the year with two first baseman as Perez alternated with David Sutherland. Perez won the every day job with his hitting while Sutherland never did hit much and was recently released.
