Catching Up On Transactions

A couple of moves that didn’t make it into the notes…

• Activated RHP Erik Davis, who will start tonight’s game against the Akron Aeros

• Activated RHP Cameron Selik, who started last night against the Kinston Indians
• Assigned OF Chris Curran to the Auburn Doubledays (i.e. sent back to XST)

With the DSL set to begin this weekend, I’d expect a whole bunch of procedural moves later this week that won’t be publicized until after the long weekend.

  1. Hmmm, so who goes down to open the space for Davis? McCoy hasn’t pitched since the 17th, so he’d be the most likely, imo.

  2. Now, I’m confused at the starters in AA. Is it Peacock, Davis, Perez, Martis, Roark? Is Arnesen back to relief? I see Tatusko is now doing his damage in the bullpen.

    1. As far as I can tell, the HAR rotation is currently Martis, Davis, Perez, Peacock, Roark; the bullpen is Arnesen & Tatusko in LR, Barthmaier, Chico, & Martinez in MR, and Van Allen, McCoy & Pena on the backend, with McCoy likely going to the DL to make space for Davis.

    2. I’d expect Perez to move to SYR at some point, but that might depend on Rizzo making a decision on the weakest link – Detwiler (SP or RP), JD Martin (keep or release), or Hyde (keep or release).

      Maya, Meyers, Milone and Stammen are all thowing very well in the starting rotation for Syracuse, while Detwiler is once again struggling. Could Perez become an effective LHSP one more time with possible trade value, or is he just a possible recovery project that doesn’t pan out – Only time will tell.

      1. Peacock deserves a shot at Syracuse first methinks?
        And don’t look now but Jhonatan Solano is as Sickels would say “awake”. He continues to thrive under the tutelage of Randy Knorr … boosting the BA over .290. Looks like there just might be a new catcher in town? Slash lines: .290/.338/.744. Flores with .248/.260/.646. Derek Norris .225/.376/.814.

        Typical for the Nats … when it rains it pours. At the one position they really don’t need immediate help they have plenty and then some.

        As for Tatusko … I have a hunch he isn’t going to be in the bullpen permanently. He is apparently working on some things with the pitching coach. Once he works past I think you might see him back in the starting rotation … just a hunch.

        1. Peric & BinM — Thanks for the smart info.
          BinM, I’m sure you remember when the entire system was populated with the J.D. Martin’s & Hyde’s of the world. My, how things have gotten better!

          Peric, thanks for the intel on Solano; he was totally off my radar. A late starter (he turns 26 in August), but catching is one position that there are never enough of. Many teams would kill to have some of ours.

  3. BTW, when will it be time for the draft guru to come back with his predictions? I think this draft could be far more interesting than the last in many respects?
