As the Potters begin to become more stretched out, the pitchers will work deeper into games. For now, manager Ryan Stevens continues to do an excellent job of getting the Potters players reps and keeping them healthy while navigating the game. A tall task in these unusual times but the 3rd year Manager for the team is the right man for the job. Potters are right back at it again on Friday, against the Kings.
