Evans, Coronado need R&R
Two staples were out of the Bisons lineup on Saturday afternoon and done so by design when manager Ken Oberkfell filled out his card. Nick Evans and Jose Coronado are going to be out of the lineup for “a few days” in the series against Syracuse.
“I think it’s good for them to get a couple days of mental (relaxation),” Oberkfell stated following Saturday’s game. “Just to relax and not press so much. So a couple days to rest mentally is going to help them.”
Combined the two players are 10-104 (.096) at the plate during the first 14 games. As a team the Bisons are hitting .202 and Coronado and Evans were the only two players left on the lineup not to receive a day off in the seasons’ first two weeks.
