There was some good news Sunday:
JJ was dominant for the Buford Braves, tossing eight scoreless innings, walking none and striking out five. Don’t know what his fastball was clocked at but recent reports say his velocity is back to where it was this time a year ago. His stay in Gwinnett may be over.
And we may not have to endure the middling defense of Tyler Pastornicky much longer. Andrelton Simmons is raking at Pearl, hitting three homers this week. He’s batting .305 with 21 RBI, a .380 OBP and a slugging percentage of .439. He’s committed only three errors, compared to the Reverend’s seven.
