News and notes
- The TinCaps will face a 6-foot-4, 150-pound starter today. That's my height minus about 90 pounds. From talking to the radio play-by-play man from Great Lakes, he can hit the low-mid 90s, which makes me feel even worse about the whole thing. And if you can't tell, it's a slow TinCaps news day.
- Weickel has had a solid start to the second half, including a season-high nine strikeouts in a relief outing June 20 and a pair of good outings as a starter June 26 and July 2. He will try to give Fort Wayne its first series win of the second half.
