Magill Rejoins Isotopes
Right-handed pitcher Matt Magill rejoins the Isotopes today, May 21 after being recalled to the Dodgers on April 27. In a corresponding move, right-handed pitcher Steve Smith was sent to Double-A Chattanooga.
Magill made four starts with the Dodgers, including his Major League debut on April 27 against the Milwaukee Brewers. The 6-foot-3 hurler did not factor in any decisions and compiled a 5.50 ERA (11 ER/18.0 IP). He also walked 13 and struck out 19.
The Southern California native was selected in the 31st round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft out of Royal High School in Simi Valley. The 23-year-old pitcher reached Triple-A for the first time in his career this season, starting four games for Albuquerque. Over four starts he posted no record with a 2.84 ERA (6 ER/ 19.0 IP). His last start for the Isotopes was on April 22 against the Oklahoma City RedHawks, where he tossed four innings of one-run ball on one hit, a solo home run.
Smith will join the Lookouts after coming to Albuquerque from Single-A Ogden on May 5. The 6-foot-2 righty is 1-0 with a 4.07 ERA (11ER/24.1IP) as an Isotope this season, his first at the Triple-A level. He made his first start of the year on May 20, throwing four innings and allowing two runs (none earned) while striking out a season-high six batters. The former Lobo struck out 18 and walked 13 over 11 appearances. The Michigan native was signed by the Dodgers as a non-drafted free agent on June 17, 2008.
The Topes take on Colorado Springs in game two of their four-game series tonight at 6:35 PM MT. RHP Blake Johnson (3-2, 4.42) will face southpaw Drew Pomeranz (6-0, 3.22). Catch all of the game action on 610 AM "The Sports Animal" with Josh Suchon on the call.
