First – Robby Rowland has been scratched from tonight’s start. He is apparently still showing concussion symptoms, although he is feeling fine and acting normal. Rowland was struck in the face by a thrown ball during Thursday’s early warm-up work, one of five Osprey who were injured on the day.
Speaking of those others – Jeremia Gomez is fine, and played last night. Both Westley Moss and Ty Linton did not participate in throwing activities (going on now), so they will likely not be available tonight. Matt Jensen did get treatment on his knee injury, and is beginning to walk a bit, but will not be available for a few days.
Here are today’s starting lineups:
Chris Ellison LF
Stephen Cardullo SS
Ryan Court 3B
Jon Griffin 1B
Jeremia Gomez LF
Eric Groff 2B
Roidany Aguila C
Bryan Henry DH – making his professional debut
Justin Bianco CF
Raymond Hernandez RHP – making his Osprey debut. He pitched an inning for the Arizona League D-backs, allowing a hit and a wild pitch while striking out two batters. He will more than likely be on a pitch count.
Great Falls (2-3)
Pete Gehle LHP
