BREAKING NEWS: Paul Janish recalled from Gwinnett. No word on the corresponding move from Atlanta, but I will hazard a guess that Ramiro Pena will be placed on the Disabled List, retroactive to the beginning of the week [CONFIRMED].
We aim to make this a weekly bit – but we’ll back up to the beginning of the month just to get things caught up.
This time of the year, there are a LOT of player re-assignments taking place. This is partly because of the break in most minor league schedules (first half ending; second half beginning). It is also because the just-drafted/just-signed rookies are beginning play – as our new Danville Braves team did last night, beating up on a squad of what honesty requires me to describe as “Rays’ underachievers”… none of whom had been drafted this year. Nonetheless, the 9-1 victory was an excellent start, with these headliners:
Victor Caratini – notably playing at 3B – 4/4, 3 Runs, 2B, 3B, OPS 3.000 (2nd Round)
Kyle Wren – (CF) 3-5 (2K), 2 Runs (8th Round)
Matt Kimbrel (last year draft pick) – 2 innings, 0 hits, 0 BB, 1 K.
Oh – and the Danville team manager? Johnathan Schuerholz.
But this is about transactions: so here they are…
