Lail to Start for Trenton Sunday

TRENTON, NJ – Prior to Friday night’s Trenton Thunder game at ARM&HAMMER Park, an unexpected visitor walked down the corridor to the home clubhouse.

Right-hander Brady Lail was back in New Jersey’s capital, in a clubhouse he left a few months ago. A injured oblique put a temporary halt to his season. He has gone 4-4, 3,86 in 14 starts between the Double-A Thunder and Triple-A Scranton.

“I’m not unhappy to be back here for a stop,” said Lail, who did not pitch between June 14 in Toledo and July 12 for a Yankees team in the Gulf Coast League. “I just want to get back to where I was.”

Lail will start for the Thunder Sunday vs. Reading. His appearance is being treated as a rehabilitation assignment. He’ll throw more than the 2.2 innings he threw in the GCL, with lefty Dan Camarena backing him up.

“I’m feeling good,” said Lail, who will not turn 23 until Aug. 9. “This had nothing to do with my arm. It was just my oblique. In that start in Toledo, I just felt something and they didn’t want to take any chances.

“I’m looking forward to Sunday.”

Thunder manager Bobby Mitchell is just glad to help get Lail back on the road to recovery.

“Brady won’t even be put on the roster,” said Mitchell. “He’s here for that one start.”
