Rochester Red Wings

Record: 71-52, 6.5 games behind North division leader, 1st place in wild card
The Red Wings have seen the promotion of top pitching prospect Stephen Gonsalves to the Rochester rotation along with the promotion of reliever Luke Bard and the return from injury of Chris Heston to give Rochester an incredibly deep pitching staff.

The lineup has been energized by the return of Zack Granite from the big league club and Daniel Palka from early season injury, giving the lineup plenty of depth, and allowing manager Mike Quade to mix and match his lineup order due to a depth of player skills in the lineup.

It will be very interesting to see who ends up getting the call from Rochester in September to come up to the big league club for an audition!
