Transaction Update

Transactions for NPP
The rain has helped solve some short-term problems for the parent club, but with yesterday’s waiver claim filling up the 40-man, don’t be fooled into thinking that’s it for now. Without further ado, here’s the latest moves, some of which were reported in the News & Notes this morning.

• RHP Christian Garcia transferred from Harrisburg for MLB Rehab
• LHP Tyler Robertson optioned from Washington (claimed on waivers)
• UT Francisco Soriano reassigned from Potomac

• RHP Paul Demny reassigned from Syracuse

• IF Jean Valdez assigned from XST

• LHP Aneudy Rosario
• OF Gilberto Ramirez

As mentioned in the “promotions” post earlier this week, injuries have created a lot of need-based moves between the affiliates. This latest batch is no exception. It’s a bit curious to move up Valdez to Potomac, but it would not surprise me in the least if this merely a temporary move that will be undone in week or less. As usual, there’s nothing to be found on the two signees, who are presumably IFAs that weren’t high-dollar (otherwise, I’d have expected Baseball America to remark about them in yesterday’s transaction post).

  1. Rizzo loves his rice on the side on draft
    Simms sounds like another Paul Demny
    I annoint Willie Ballou with the nickname
    CAT as in the film which gave Jane CongFonda

    1. Well, now she is the upper crust southern belle of the city of Atlanta. A Cotillion lady. Who’d have thunk it?

  2. Well the Kline comment on the Deleware Hen
    1b has me itching for Pleff to Phitz and JY
    Sliding next to Renda on infield

  3. Further thought on Kline suggesting some
    NCAA kids could skip Rookie Ball out of
    Draft class-
    In 30 days could we see this?
    Pleff and Hawkeye McM head to Phitz?
    Keister gets Yezzo for 1b, Bernie Allen
    For outfield depth … Cody Dent and …. Don’t laugh
    … Carlos Akvarez for bench depth on infield

  4. Congrats to Chicago Blackhawks who
    Rebound from 2-3 year chemistry rebuild.
    Nats should take a lesson in how time takes a bit
    In chemistry reshuffle. ( side note – Bickell
    Has played himself into a nice FA deal
    Elsewhere )
    Rizzo needs to retool goon squad
    Nice retooling of pen. !!!
