Gulliver sent back to EST

May 23, 2010

Infielder Jimmy Gulliver’s stay with the Lakeland Flying Tigers was a short one, as he was sent down to extended spring training Sunday.  He only spent a few days with the Flying Tigers and did not appear in a game.  Expect him to be assigned to Connecticut when the New York-Penn League season begins.

More promotions from EST

May 21, 2010

Two more Lakeland Flying Tigers have landed on the disabled list, prompting the promotions of third baseman Francisco Martinez and shortstop Jimmy Gulliver from extended spring training to Lakeland.

Martinez will step in as the Flying Tigers everyday third baseman, replacing the injured Bryan Pounds.  Gulliver will provide depth as a backup infielder.

Nolan Moody, previously featured on Tigers in EST, has been promoted from extended spring training to the West Michigan Whitecaps.  Moody made his Whitecaps debut Wednesday, pitching a scoreless inning in relief.

Wilfredo Ramirez, also featured on Tigers in EST, has been promoted from extended spring training to the Lakeland Flying Tigers.

Additionally, TigsTown is reporting that Sean Finefrock has un-retired and reported to extended spring training.  Finefrock pitched for the Oneonta Tigers in 2007 and 2008.

Daniel Fields and Chao-Ting Tang updates

Daniel Fields and Chao-Ting Tang were both promoted from extended spring training to the Lakeland Flying Tigers earlier this season.  One has had a hard time transitioning to advanced A ball while the other has barely seen the field.

Fields has been struggling, hitting only .129 with zero extra base hits in his last 10 games.  He has also struck out 15 times during that span.  Since Fields appears to be overmatched, it seems likely he will be sent down to Connecticut when the New York-Penn League season begins.

Tang has played sparingly for the Flying Tigers, having appeared in only 4 games.  He has gone 3 for 10 with a walk and a double in his limited playing time.  Like Fields, Tang is a good candidate to get sent down to Connecticut in time for the Connecticut Tigers opener, unless an injury to another player opens up more playing time at a higher level.
