Here are all the moves since last Tuesday. It is not as many as last week, but it is decent sized.

– Brandon Birdsell promoted to Tennessee
– South Bend activated Kevin Alcantara
– Sam Armstrong promoted to Myrtle Beach
– Samuel Reyes promoted to Tennessee
– Nick Hull Promoted to South Bend 
– Edwin Rios placed on the 7-Day IL
– Eligio Paredes promoted to Myrtle Beach

I am in meetings most of the morning, but I will check back after 11 am. Most of the moves will come this afternoon. I expect to see a few moves.

As for today, here is my wish list. Let me re-emphasize the word wish.

Parker Chavers to South Bend
Matt Shaw to Tennessee
Zac Leigh to Iowa
Zyhir Hope to Myrtle Beach

The odds of that last transaction happening are probably at 0.000001%. But a man can dream.

Next week, the Arizona Rookie League is done on the 22nd. We could see Alexis Hernandez and a few others make their way to the Carolina League at some point that week.

5:55 AM

I forgot to add these moves from last last night.

I will talk to you around 11.

12:25 PM

No emails have come in from South Bend or Myrtle Beach or Iowa. I am hearning things online and seeing things on Instagram that certain players are moving. That includes a guy I have been begging to be promoted for 6 weeks now. Looks like it is happening! I will make it official later.
