Today’s Tuesday Transaction post could be a weird one. The reason I say that is because everybody played yesterday as part of the July 4 holiday so that each minor-league affiliate could host a fireworks show. As a result, everybody’s going to be playing 12 games in a row and they are going to be ready for a break next week. They will get four days off for the All-Star break and the Draft. That’s when we should see a lot more moves. As for the moves today, don’t expect to see major moves like Pete Crow-Armstrong going to Iowa. That’ll probably happen next week after the Futures Game.

I am expecting a little shake up at Tennessee in the bullpen. Maybe some will go the development list. Others could come from South Bend. How many? We shall see.

Let’s look at what has happened since last Tuesday.

To Iowa – Nick Neidart was activated while pitcher Jordan Halloway was released. Jordan Wicks was promoted from Tennessee while Hunter Bigge and Jake Washer went on the Development List.

To Tennessee – Joe Nahas arrived from South Bend.

To South Bend – Brody McCullough and Angel Gonzalez arrived from Myrtle Beach. Christian Franklin went on a rehab assignment to Mesa.

To Myrtle Beach – Kenyi Perez was assigned to the Pelicans. Stephen Gonsalves was sent on a rehab assignment to the Birds. Brailyn Marquez was sent on a rehab assignment to the Pelicans.

DSL – Released OF Daniel Ferreira, OF Raul Guzman, C Jose Herrera, and C Dilver Gomez

Big Prediction for Today

Max Bain will be sent out from Mesa to a full season affiliate.

8 AM

Looks like Daniel Palencia is going to get a “look-see” in Chicago!!! See Greg Zumach’s article! That is one pretty quick ascension! This turned out to be a bigger day than I thought. Good for him!

I will be back around 10 AM. There might not be any bigger news than that, but you never know.

10 AM

Crickets right now.

1:45 PM

Everybody and their mother knew Max was coming back as I think he told everybody. We were just sworn to secrecy.

With Palencia going up, Hayden Wesneski was sent to Iowa.

There should be more coming as I have not received my emails from Iowa and Myrtle Beach yet. Those usually come somewhere in the noon hour and that hour has passed.

4:15 PM

This was a big surprise. Bryce Ball was released by the Cubs today. He was at South Bend until today. Nice kid, worked hard. Good luck and hopefully he can hook on with someone else.

4:30 PM

Still haven’t heard from the Pelicans and I-Cubs yet. That’s a bit odd as they are usually so punctual.

5:30 PM

Adrian Sampson activated by Iowa.

No email ever came from Myrtle Beach.
