Don Trollano’s Impact on Injury-hit San Miguel Beer: A Much-needed Shot in the Arm
MANILA Philippines–San Miguel Beer is thrilled to have Don Trollano join an already-loaded lineup that is decimated by injuries in the ongoing PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Trollano recently landed at the Beermen camp after the Road Warriors shipped him to the Batang Pier in exchange for Robert Bolick.
With San Miguel dropping to 3-3 with two straight defeats, including Sunday’s 94-90 setback at the hands of unbeaten Magnolia at Philsports Arena in Pasig City, Trollano’s addition is seen as a necessary move to ease the pressure off its healthy players like veterans Marcio Lassiter and Chris Ross, as well as Jericho Cruz and CJ Perez. San Miguel is currently without June Mar Fajardo, Terrence Romeo, Jeron Teng, Simon Enciso, and Vic Manuel.
“Don is a veteran who is a two-way player that is why we are very excited to see how he can contribute to our team,” said Gee Abanilla, the team manager.
The trade also reunites Trollano with Cruz and Brondial, former teammates at Adamson, and active consultant Leo Austria, who handled the unassuming wingman during his earlier UAAP days with the Falcons. Abanilla expressed optimism that Trollano’s adjustment will be smooth and swift.
