The Portland Sea Dogs have called up 1st baseman Anthony Rizzo from Single-A Salem. He was originally in the lineup tonight against Binghamton, but didn't make it to Portland in time to be in the starting line-up.
The 20 year-old Rizzo has hit .248 w/ 5 homers and 20 RBI'S in 29 games this season in the Carolina League. He was drafted in 6th round in 2007, and he beat cancer in 2008.
Jeff is at the game tonight and will once again be tracking Casey Kelly's pitches. Make sure to check it out on the sister site "Hadlock Headlines"
