New First Baseman

Left-handed first baseman Rhyne Hughes is coming to the Durham Bulls from the Montgomery Biscuits. Hughes’ rep is as a slugger. He has the most home runs in the Southern League at 15 and 46 RBIs this year. Has never played above the AA level. Hitting and fielding stats. He also strikes out a lot. So here's hoping he isn't next to Justin Ruggiano in the lineup.

I guess what worries me is whether this means that Chris Richard’s hamstring is going to put him off the field for a while and, if so, are we going to miss Richard's terrific glove at first?

Also, Matt Hall has been assigned back to the Charlotte Stone Crabs down in Florida.
