Moving On Up for NPP
The moves first heard here in the comments are now being officially confirmed as 1B-3B John Wooten has been promoted from Low-A Hagerstown to Potomac and IF Oscar Tejeda has been promoted from Potomac to Harrisburg.

Wooten has been on a tear since returning to the Suns lineup earlier this month after taking a pitch to the face in mid-June, hanging a .413/.423/.652 line with 2HRs and 15 RBI in 12 games. Overall, he’s hitting .309 with eight HR and 54 RBI in 72 games for Hagerstown. The 23-y.o. was acquired last November from Oakland in a trade for Fernando Abad.

Tejeda, who was named the Carolina League’s Batter of the Week earlier today, returns to AA where he’s spent the past three seasons as a former farmhand for Boston, who signed him as an IFA in 2006, and Pittsburgh, where he spent 2013 largely as a backup for AA Altoona and AAA Indianapolis.

In a related move, OF Brandon Miller’s rehab stint with Auburn has been completed and he’ll be returning to the P-Nats. Miller had strained a hamstring in Frederick in mid-May and missed more than two months before returning to action in the GCL for six games, then spending a series with the Doubledays to play back into game shape.

  1. In alumni news, it looks like Billy Burns is going to get promoted to The Show for the Oakland A’s:
