Game 40: TinCaps (16-23) vs. Great Lakes (17-22)

CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

The TinCaps have their replacement for starting pitcher Jesse Scholtens, who was promoted over the weekend to high-A Lake Elsinore.

It was announced Thursday that Ronald Bolanos has joined Fort Wayne from extended spring training and is scheduled to start Saturday in the third game of this series against Great Lakes at Parkview Field.

The San Diego Padres signed Bolanos out of Cuba in August. The 19-year-old right-hander was ranked by as the No. 20 international prospect last year and should present significant upside for the TinCaps' rotation.

The TinCaps are coming off a three-game sweep at Lansing in their most successful series of 2017 and first road sweep since 2014.

Fernando Tatis Jr. SS
