HAYDEN DEAL (Class A Rome, Ga.)

The Braves were idle on Monday and begin a three-game homestand against Delmarva (Md.) on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

Former Bandys High left-hander Hayden Deal’s last outing was last Friday when he threw 32/3 innings in relief in a 6-3 victory at Greenville (S.C.).

He threw 85 pitches — 48 of them for strikes — and faced 20 batters. He gave up five hits, two runs (both earned), walked four and struck out four.

The four strikeouts gave Deal 100 in his pro baseball career (36 games, 97 1/3 innings pitched).

He improved to 6-1 this season with an ERA of 2.44 and he has two saves, has pitched 66 1/3 innings and has 73 strikeouts and 15 walks this season.

Deal is 2-1 with an ERA of 2.77 in his last 10 appearances with 39 innings pitched, 35 strikeouts and eight walks.

The Braves are 59-52 overall and 19-23 in the second-half SAL Southern Division standings and are tied for fourth place with Charleston (S.C.), four games back of Lexington (Ky.)

Rome won a first-half title, securing a postseason berth.

ZACH JARRETT (Class A Delmarva, Md.)

The Shorebirds were idle on Monday and start a three-game series at Rome (Ga.) on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

Former Hickory High and Charlotte star Zach Jarrett is hitting .284 with 21 doubles, three triples, 13 home runs and 54 RBIs in 105 games this season. In his last 10 games, he is hitting .256 with no home runs and no RBIs.

He has 114 hits, most in the SAL this season.

Delmarva is 56-53 and 21-21 in the second half in the SAL Northern Division standings, sharing fourth with Greensboro at 7 ½ games behind division-leading Lakewood, N.J.

HUNTER HARVEY (Class AA Bowie, Md.)

Bowie was idle on Monday and is at New Hampshire on Tuesday to begin a three-game series.

Former Bandys High star Hunter Harvey, a right-hander sidelined since early June by an injury, was to resume throwing on Monday.

There’s been no official indication when Harvey might next pitch for Bowie.

He is listed on Bowie’s roster and noted as being on a seven-day disabled list.

He was in Florida working out last month while recovering from a shoulder injury sustained while trying to maneuver away from a foul ball into the dugout on a day he was not pitching.

When he twisted to avoid being struck by the ball, his right shoulder popped out of socket.

He was scratched from his 10th start (June 8).

Harvey is 1-2 with 32 1/3 innings pitched. He’s allowed 36 hits, 20 runs (all earned), walked eight and struck out 30. His ERA is 5.57.

Bowie finished last in the first-half West Division of the Eastern League, 8 ½ games back of division winner Akron (Ohio).
