BaseBull Monday - Buffalo Bulls in the pros

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Steve Geltz - Tampa Bay Devil Rays

The Devil Rays are making use of their bull pen to get over some injuries to the pitching staff. Last Wee Steve Geltz pitched the first two innings against Wasthington putting down all six batters he faced.

A decent reliever who's only trying to go one or two innings is as good or better than a starter trying to pitch deep into a game. Geltz got flyball outs from the first two batters he faced, and that brought up Bryce Harper. Against the most dangerous hitter in baseball, Geltz shone.

Going back ten appearances Geltz has pitched 11 innings with a 0.82 ERA.

Tom Murphy - New Britain Rock Cats (AA)

Murphy has fallen off that amazing 350 batting average he was rocking last monty but he is still showing some serious power.

Short stop Trevor Story and catcher Tommy Murphy are locked in some kind of home-run war. Seems like every time I'm writing that one dude hit one out, the other has as well and in this game they both hit their tenth blast of the season.

Over his last ten games the Catcher is flirting with the Mendoza line. The power game is not enough for a summertime move to AAA.

Jason Kanzler - Fort Myers Miracle (A+)

Kanzler continues to rebuild his average after a terrible start to the year. In his last ten games Kanzler is batting 290 with 5 runs scored and 4 RBI's. That has brought his average for the year up to 248.

Jason Kanzler led off with a double down the right field line and advanced to third on Garver's ground out to second. Knecht then chopped a single through a drawn-in infield to score Kanzler and double the lead, 2-0.

Mike Burke - Delmarva Shorebirds (A)

Burke picked up his first save of the year for Delmarva.

In game two, Nick Cunningham and Mike Burke dominated with a superb pitching performance. Cunningham pitched five scoreless frames in the start, his longest outing of the year. Burke retired all six batters he faced to close out the night.

He continues to get good work in but one game in which he surrendered 5 runs in 1.2 innings drags down his ERA. Over the last three games he has pitched five innings and gave up only a single run.

Nick Sinay - Bluefield Blue Jays (ROK)

No official word yet on where Sinay will land but I have it on pretty good authority that he will be suiting up in Bluefield West Virginia as one of the Blue Jays.

The team was supposed to announce their roster on Saturday but still no word from the organization or the news outlets that follow them.

Tyler Mautner - Elizabethton Twins (ROK)

This is a sad one. Tyler Mautner was cut by the twins organization.

After a shoulder injury this past spring Mautner was not able to recover from the injury before the season started and went into extended spring training.
