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.
