Godwin product won't get to pitch vs. Squirrels

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Graham Stoneburner's dream was to come back home and toe the rubber at The Diamond.  He won't get that chance this week.

The Mills Godwin product is a starting pitcher for the Trenton Thunder, who are in Richmond for a four game set. Stoneburner was set to start Wednesday against the Squirrels, but late in the day Monday, Stoneburner was shelved for the week with a stiff arm.

The former Clemson Tiger did not participate in any throwing drills or soft toss Monday before the Squirrels and Thunder showdown at The Diamond.

This is Stoneburner's first year in the Eastern League.  He's 1-1 with an ERA under two, and he leads the team in strikeouts after three starts.

Despite growing up in Richmond and attending games at The Diamond as a kid, Stoneburner has never toed the rubber at the ancient Richmond Stadium.  He was looking forward to being able to do that for the first time this week.

One of the perks about having Richmond on the schedule is that Stoneburner was able to come home and have Easter dinner Sunday with his family on the team's off day.
