Quick hit: Claiborne gets the call

Looks like Preston Claiborne is getting the call to the big show to replace Joba Chamberlain while he recovers from a strained oblique. Claiborne tweeted this an hour ago:


Some people figured Mark Montgomery may be getting the call. He along with Claiborne and Sam Demel were mentioned as possibilities. While Claiborne isn't as recognizable a name as Montgomery, he does have some experience in Triple A. He made 20 appearances last year with Scranton. So far this season, Claiborne has 10 strikeouts and one walk through 10.1 innings.
