Day-to-Day Injury Shelves Mitchell
Friday, June 5th, 2026
Charleston's star left fielder Donald Mitchell injured himself in a game against the Gloucester Fishermen, prompting the team to list him as day-to-day. The doctors are reporting the injury as a strained oblique and they say the best medicine is a short period of rest. "Hopefully I don't get replaced by some hotshot wannabe," said Mitchell with a smile as he talked to reporters.

During the current season Mitchell is batting at a .304 clip with 10 home runs and 33 RBIs. He has played in 52 games and scored 27 times.
