Last week saw a bevy of activity on Monday around supper time. I was wondering if that was going to happen again this week and it did not. There actually was a lot of action over the weekend as Iowa, Tennessee, and South Bend had a lot of players moving on list and off lists.
It’s also gotten to that point in the season where I keep expecting move moves to happen but they don’t. I’ve been saying for well over a month and a half that Ezequiel Pagan and Tyler Santana should move up to South Bend. If that happens, that pretty much takes the current ace of the Pelicans’ staff out of the rotation and a powerful on-base machine in Pagan.
Here’s what we have so far when it comes to the moves that have been made coming into today.
Iowa – RHP Cayne Ueckert was placed on the Development List. RHP Raynel Espinal was released after just being acquired for Dixon Machado.
Tennessee – The Smokies transferred RHP Max Bain and 2B Christian Donahue to the Development List. They also activated 2B Delvin Zinn from the temporarily inactive list.
South Bend – The Cubs placed RHP Alfredo Zarraga on the 7-day injured list and activated RHP Brad Deppermann off the 7-Day IL. In addition, pitcher Chris Kachmar was sent to Mesa on a rehab assignment. RHP Jarod Wright was placed on the 7-Day IL.
Myrtle Beach – RHP Jose Romero assigned to ACL Cubs.
I’ll be in a teachers Institute the rest of the afternoon but I should have some time to check on any moves that were made later in the day.
2:30 PM Update
I did not see these moves coming.
Both Zac Leigh from South Bend is off to Tennessee and CD Pelham from Tennessee is headed to Triple-A Iowa.
