Chase Wright optioned down

I just learned that Chase Wright was optioned down to Trenton make room for Hideki Matsui, who is coming off the DL tonight. That lines him up to pitch Friday night in Harrisburg. But with Mike Mussina being in line for a rehab start that night for either the Thunder or Scranton, he might get pushed back to Saturday.

The safe bet is on the Thunder deactivating C J.T. LaFountain.

Scott Patterson makes the spot start tonight. It's his first start since 2005, when he was in the independent leagues.

Here are tonight's lineups:

Alex Requena SS
John Bowker DH
Brian Horwitz RF
Eddy Martinez-Esteve LF
Carlos Sosa 1B
Patrick Dobson 2B
Simon Klink 3B
Todd Jennings C
Jake Wald SS

Garrett Broshuis P

Brett Gardner CF
Ramiro Pena SS
Cody Ehlers 1B
Shawn Garrett DH
P.J. Pilittere C
Justin Christian LF
Aarom Baldiris 3B
Matt Carson RF
Gabe Lopez 2B

Scott Patterson P

Do you know when we will be told if Mussina is going to rehab in Waterfront Park? If he does pitch here, any advice on when a good time might be to get an autograph? Before or after the game. I'd like to get Mussina to sign a couple of my balls. thanks for your help.

It won't be at Waterfront Park. If he does rehab with the Thunder, it will be on Friday night at Harrisburg.
