This is getting to be a little redundant every week as I keep bringing up the same guys to promote and they keep staying in place. I am ready for Pete Crow-Armstrong to move up to Iowa. I am ready for Parker Chavers to move to South Bend. I’m ready for Brandon Birdsell and Cade Horton to go to Tennessee. And I am ready for some relievers to move all across the system.

However, I think we’re still a week away from a mass migration of prospects in the system. That’s going to come with the convergence of two events – draft picks beginning play and the trade deadline passing. Once those things are complete, I can get off my soapbox about Parker Chavers…again.

If PCA moves, Greg Huss will break it down. Otherwise, I am here for all the moves.

Let’s take a look at what happened in the system since last Tuesday as there were a few moves that went down.

Iowa – Jared Young returned from Chicago. RHP Adrian Sampson outrighted Iowa
Tennessee – Released Zach Davis and DJ Artis. Sent Stephen Gonsalves to South Bend.
South Bend – Activated Yovanny Cruz and Stephen Gonsalves, sent Chase Watkins and Dillan Granadillo to the Development List. Sent Derek Casey to the ACL on a rehab assignment.
Myrtle Beach – None
Mesa – Released pitcher Elian Almanzar
DSL – Activated pitcher Bryan Landaez. Free agent RHP Brayan Diaz signed to a minor league contract and assigned to DSL Red
Free Agents – Pitcher Kenten Egbert officially signed as a nondrafted free agent out of Miami (OH).

I will check back throughout the morning and early afternoon. Sometime around 2:30, I’m going to takeoff and head to Peoria. When I get to the ballpark, I can check back in with any final details.

Poll of the Day

As for Jaxon Wiggins, he remains the only draft pick yet to sign. If he does not, Greg Zumach will have you covered when that news comes out. If he does sign, Greg will have that news as well.


Iowa released SS Sergio Alcantara. That frees up a spot.
