MiLB AAA Recap: Early May Ejections; Brian Runge Update

MiLB Recap: Brian Runge was spotted in Triple-A New Orleans this weekend, working the plate Saturday during Tacoma's 14-1 trouncing of the Zephyrs. As was the case with Joe West and Gary Cederstrom earlier this season, this suggests a step closer to a return to MLB ball.

Not a one I could locate. I'll keep scouring; would especially like to locate the DJ Reyburn fair ball ejection prior to its reversal to foul.

Kurt Suzuki just got tossed by John Tumpane

Yes I believe those were all injury rehab games, just a series or two to get back into the swing of things.
