- Charlie Morton has produced the top ground ball percentage (61.0) in the majors since the beginning of last season.
- Neil Walker appeared in his 600th game of his big league career when he took the field today. The Kid has started all 51 games this season.
- Jordy Mercer, who has struggled mightily this year, still has the stroke against lefties, hitting .294. Oddly, he's only started three of the MLB low five games when LHP starts v the Bucs in 2014. Clint Barmes, who got the other two starts, is batting .143 against southpaws.
- Ex-Bucs: LHP Sean Burnett is headed to the DL for the Angels with elbow issues. OF/1B Xavier Nady has signed a minor league deal with Seattle.
