Cade Cavalli was the top prospect officially sent to the minor-league camp, but the move was perhaps overshadowed by the highly questionable decision to outright a 27-y.o. defensive stalwart (Andrew Stevenson) ahead of a trio of 34-y.o. OF’s (Dee Strange-Gordon, Yadiel Hernandez, Gerardo Parra).
Also re-assigned to minor league camp were relievers Carl Edwards Jr. and Jace Fry, plus catcher Chris Hermann. All four are expected to begin the season with Rochester.
Cavalli was hit hard this spring, giving up 14 runs across three appearances and 8#8531; innings – including 11 runs this past Wednesday in two and a 1/3rd innings. He’ll return to AAA and look to improve on the 7.04/4.54/1.86 line in his last six starts.
Details on the final Red Wings roster were not divulged today. Rochester begins the 2022 season with a six-game series (yep, still the norm) at Toledo.
