Steve Geltz - Tampa Bay

It's been a rough start to the season for Geltz. While he is certainly not playing awful he is playing below where Tampa Bay fans would like to see a potential set up pitcher.

Geltz has been struggling a bit this year but he had a couple of rough patches last year as well and still managed a decent season for a short reliever.

Tommy Murphy - Albuquerque ( Colorado AAA )

Murphy was in a horse race for the second catcher spot in Colorado this spring but seemed to have struggled a little at the plate. As soon as he was sent down to Alburqueque he was put on the 7 day disabled list for a Strained left oblique. He stayed on the DL for nearly a month. Then, 9 days ago, he was activated by the isotopes.

Since then he has played 7 games and is putting up solid numbers. Against Salt Lake City he hit a grand slam which put the Topes' up 5-2.

Mike Burke - extended spring training ( Baltimore Orioles )

Burke finished last season pitching at the A level with the  Delmarva Shorebirds. He was 2-2 with a save and an under 4 ERA and that was enough for the O's to bring him back for extended spring training.

Mike is getting a lot of work in spring ball. And he appears to be making the most of it with a very good era and a fantastic strikeout to walk ratio.  Sometime in June the club should assign him to a club. I would guess either back to Delmarva or the Frederick Keys, an advanced A level team.

Nick Sinay - extended spring training ( Toronto Blue Jays )

Sinay was drafted by Toronto as a project player and spent last season in the rookie leagues. Like Burke he was solid enough that the Jays decided to invest in some extended spring work before placing him. I would guess you'll see him in Vancouver (Short A) or Lansing (A).
