Testa Promoted to Ft. Myers

Another day. Another promotion. Travis from Travis Talks is reporting that Joe Testa has been promoted to Ft. Myers. The news comes just one day after he pitched in the Midwest League All-Star game. He faced two batters and got two outs. He told me this afternoon that he threw just three pitches. I asked him this afternoon if he had heard anything, but said he hadn’t. We looked at the Miracle roster and saw they were actually down to just 10 pitchers, so I figured it was just a matter of time. And again, according to Travis, the time was this evening. Testa has been excellent out of the Snappers bullpen all season. In 45.2 innings, he had 63 strikeouts. He also had 23 walks. He was 0-2 with a 2.56 ERA. He has recorded seven saves. You recall that Testa signed with the Twins out of Wagner University last year after the draft and pitched for the GCL Twins. When the Miracle needed a left-handed pitcher, Testa walked across the parking lot and performed well until an injury cut short his season. He has definitely earned this promotion.

Again, I don’t know of any subsequent moves that may be necessary, but I will try to keep you updated. Let me know what you think.
