The Salem Sox sweep of the Kinston Indians last night continues their winning ways taking all three games from Kinston and winning 8 of their last 10 games. The Sox have also added several new faces for the second half and have welcomed home an injured sox player. Catcher Tim Federowicz, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and outfielder David Mailman have been added to the roster from Greenville. Mailman, Rizzo and Federowicz, all selected to the 2009 South Atlantic League All-Star game, add valuable depth to the roster and some powerful bats to the Salem arsenal. The Sox also welcome back shortstop Yamaico Navarro to anchor the infield and provide stability to a shaky defensive unit. Navarro had missed every game since Opening Day and the loss of the #9 Boston Red Sox prospect as selected by Baseball America hurt the Salem Sox defensively and offensively. Navarro’s return means that Negron will be able to work off the bench fielding at shortstop and second base when called upon and veteran Zach Borowiak can move to third base permanently.
