Catching Up On TransactionsAn 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…

HARRISBURG
• IF Carlos Rivero reassigned from Syracuse
• RHP Paul Demny placed on the 7-Day DL

HAGERSTOWN
• OF Wander Ramos activated from the 7-Day DL
• LHP Kylin Turnbull reassigned from Auburn

AUBURN
• IF Matt Foat reassigned from Hagerstown
• RHP Austin Voth transferred from the GCL
• RHP John Simms transferred from the GCL

GCL NATIONALS
• 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.

  1. Lucas Giolito was removed after only 1/3 of an inning today. Aaagh! What happened? It seems he gave up a hit and two walks, and 2 runs (one earned). I hope he simply reached a pitch limit immediately, and was not removed for an injury.

  2. Pitch limit. I’m sure he was likely only going an inning or 30 pitches or so.

  3. Nice bunch of LH bat numbers in Space
    Coast
    Both and Simms break north- good
