Cedar Rapids – Can you name the six guys who started this season on rotation at the Cedar Rapids kernel?

Can you guess how many of those people are still hanging around in the Cedar Rapids kernel? How many still have Cedar Rapids kernels?

Question 1 is answered by Aaron Rozek, Brent Hedrick, Sawyer Gipson-Long, Cade Povich, Sean Mooney and Casey Legumina.

The answer to the second question is one: Rozek. That is also the answer to the third question.

Player movement is a consistent thing in minor league baseball, guys.

“Some of those guys did well, some of them went to Double-A,” said Colonels manager Brian Dinkelman, following his team’s 9-5 loss to Beloit at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. “We lost Povich in that trade yesterday. We’re a little low in the rotation right now.”

As noted by the captain, Povich was included in Tuesday’s trade by parent Minnesota Twins with the Baltimore Orioles for major league reliever George Lopez. Double-A living Gipson-Long went to the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday in a trade for big league reliever Michael Fulmer.

Hedrick was recently promoted to Double-A Wichita. Legumina already existed. Mooney is on the injured list with Cedar Rapids.

Rozek (7-5) lost this game for three runs in two innings. It was the fourth game in a row in which the kernel starter went 3 2/3 innings or less, a troubling pattern.

“Hopefully we’ll get some (more) people here soon and help fill in,” Dinkelman said. “Just part of the game.”

Seth Gray went 3-for-4 with four RBIs for Cedar Rapids (59-39, 16-16 in the second half of the Midwest League). Marcus Chiu had two home runs and four RBIs for Beloit, who has won the first two games of this six-game series.

By the way, Dinkelmann was dismissed at the top of the third inning for an argument over balls and strike. The manager and his coaching staff were particularly concerned about a 3–2 pitch from reliever Tyler Palm, with bases loaded and two outs called ball fours.

The game started half an hour late due to rain.

Colons general manager Scott Wilson said Wednesday that next week’s game against the Quad Cities River Bandits at the Field of Dreams near Dyersville is sold out. Teams will play their first minor league game on the movie site Tuesday, two days before the major league game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds.
