Off the rails
■ After going 15 for 39 (.385) through the first 10 games of the season, Railriders infielder Gleyber Torres earned International League batter of the week honors Monday. Torres is tied for the league lead in hits, and has two doubles, one triple and one home run. He has also driven in 10 runs. Torres is the first SWB player to win the batter of the week award since Billy Mckinney won it for the July 24-July 30 period last season. Indianapolis’ Nick Kingham was named pitcher of the week after going 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA. He allowed one run on four hits in 11 innings, walked three and struck out 16.
■ The Railriders added RHP Luis Cessa and OF Shane Robinson to the roster from New York on Monday, and sent OF Rashad Crawford to Double-a Trenton and RHP Paul Young to extended spring training to make room. Crawford was 6 for 18 (.333) in six games with the Railriders, getting a shot at Triple-a because the outfield was so thinned out. Young did not appear in a game. Despite being on the opening day roster, Cessa has yet to pitch for the Railriders. He was called up April 7 when CC Sabathia went on the disabled list. Cessa appeared in two games and struck out three in two innings. Robinson played two games for the Railriders before being called up to New York. He was designated for assignment April 12, but cleared waivers and returned to SWB.
