Punching Tickets: Minor League Transactions


Things have slowed down on the bus over the past couple of weeks… mostly.  The Rookie Leagues are well under way, and mid-season transactions have slowed as a result.  So let’s see what’s happened in the two weeks since we last looked in (July 16-August 2nd).

Hmmm…. should I go ahead and mention tomorrow’s transaction?  It’ll probably go like this:

  • B.J. Upton re-activated from 15-day disabled list (Atlanta)
  • Todd Cunningham optioned to AAA Gwinnett
  • Nope:  it’s Gerald Laird to the DL, retroactive to 7/26, as he recovers from the kidney stone procedure he had a couple of days ago.
