Other home run hitters over in Tampa include Lou Marson (4) and Jason Donald (5). Marson and Jeremy Slayden each had two-hit games, while Hector Made had two hits on Monday and Wednesday (7/25). Jayson Werth went hitless in three at-bats in his first rehab appearance on Wednesday. Meanwhile, on the mound, Brett Myers continued his rehab with two starts in Tampa. He struck four in 2.1 innings. Josh Outman and Andrew Carpenter continued their winning ways while Alex Concepcion picked up his first loss as a Thresher.

Moving On Up
Greg Golson was promoted to Reading yesterday (July 25). Lakewood Blueclaws' pitcher Andrew Cruse has left Lakewood and joined the Threshers to fill the roster spot. In addition, Jayson Werth has joined the Threshers as part of his rehab assignment.

Updated at 1:00pm: Josh Outman has been promoted to Reading. Check the Official Site later for the release. Also, Brett Myers is no longer on the Threshers roster.

Andrew Cruse joins the Threshers after a season-long stint with Lakewood. He was a ninth-round pick of the Phillies in the 2006 draft after playing at the University of South Carolina. He made his pro debut with Batavia and was a NY-Penn League All-Star in 2006. He primarily came out of the bullpen this season, but did start nine games this season, including his last 6 appearances. He likely will be the newest member of the Threshers starting rotation.

Updated 2:35pm: Cruse is scheduled to make his first start for the Threshers on Saturday, July 28.

Andrew Carpenter was given the Phillies Minor League Pitcher of the Week Award for July 16-22 after striking out 10 and only giving up three hits in a complete-game shutout of Dunedin on July 19.
