Card Notes: Monday, May 20 at Toledo
Good morning from the hot box known as the Toledo press box, where we are baking in anticipation of the Chiefs’ 10:30 game vs. the Mud Hens. Here’s a look at the lineup in today’s edition of Card Notes…

Jeff Kobernus LF
Will Rhymes 2B

Corey Brown CF
Micah Owings DH
Mike Costanzo 3B

1. Zach Walters gets a rare day off, having played in 41 of the Chiefs’ first 43 games. He’s replaced at shortstop by Brian Bocock.
2. Today’s the 575th professional game for Bocock at shortstop – and his first as a Chief. That’s 502 more games than at his second-most-frequent position, second base (73).
3. Corey Brown’s now played center field in all five games since his return from the Disabled List.
4. After Chris Rahl in the leadoff spot, the Chiefs alternate left-handed batters and right-handers for every other batter, from Jeff Kobernus on.
5. Mud Hens starter Shawn Hill’s been a teammate of three Chiefs in today’s lineup: Bocock (2012 Las Vegas, Toronto’s AAA team), Jeroloman (2010 Las Vegas), and, for a grand total of three starts, Chris Marrero (2007-08 Potomac Nationals).
