UPDATED: Kennedy out, Ryan up, Encarnacion scratched
Greetings, all… Your faithful correspondent is back from a little family time (including sitting in the stands to see Anks’ display yesterday — wow).
Adam Kennedy has been placed on the 15-day DL with a torn medial meniscus (that’s in the knee, for those of you who don’t care much for the names of bones and ligaments and whatnot). In his place, Brendan Ryan has been recalled from Memphis. Ryan is starting today at third base, with Rolen taking a previously scheduled day off. Miles is starting at second. Elsewhere in today’s lineup, Ankiel is playing
center, Ludwick left and Encarnacion right.
CORRECTION/UPDATE: Encarnacion has been scratched. So Taguchi is starting in center field and batting fifth, and Rick Ankiel is playing right field and batting second. Ryan Ludwick has moved up from 5th to 4th in the order.
