An unusually high number of transactions coming in from the affiliates this afternoon, so to
maximize page views help you guys sort through them, here’s a recap of what I’ve got so far…
• IF Carlos Rivero reassigned from Syracuse
• RHP Paul Demny placed on the 7-Day DL
• OF Wander Ramos activated from the 7-Day DL
• LHP Kylin Turnbull reassigned from Auburn
• IF Matt Foat reassigned from Hagerstown
• RHP Austin Voth transferred from the GCL
• RHP John Simms transferred from the GCL
• LHP Elliott Waterman reassigned from Auburn
• LHP Niko Spezial reassigned from Auburn
• OF Brenton Allen assigned from Washington
Geoff Morrow of the Patriot-News is reporting via Twitter that Demny has been suffering from some arm soreness and won’t be taking part in next week’s All-Star Game. Rivero hasn’t played since Saturday and would appear to have been transferred to get some more playing time as the parent club seems hell-bent on not benching Danny Espinosa.
Kylin Turnbull’s recent success in Auburn seems to spurring the club to give him another chance at testing his stuff against Low-A batters. Likewise, it would appear that the swapping of pitchers between upstate NY and the Space Coast is a matter of getting higher-calibre competition for the guys escaping Florida and more time to work with coaches at the complexes for the guys returning.
