I am not sure what’s going to go down today.

What I would like to see a a few guys from South Bend head up to Tennessee to help them with their playoff push and hopefully win a title. With the South Bend eliminated in the Midwest League and just six games left in their season, there’s really not much more for them to play for in northern Indiana.

Who could I see heading up

Yesterday in “”The Breakdown,” I named Kevin, Alcantara, Sheldon Reid, and Connor Nolan is guys who could possibly move up to give the Smokies a hand.

As for other moves, it’s just that time of year where a transaction could occur on any day of the week, not necessarily Tuesday, since it is so late in the year. 

Move since last week

– Catcher David Avitia is back with a Myrtle Beach after spending a week out in Arizona.

– RHP Blake Whitney assigned to Iowa Cubs from Tennessee Smokies.

– RHP Joe Nahas assigned to South Bend Cubs from Tennessee Smokies.

– Iowa Cubs released LHP Richard Bleier.

– RHP Manuel Espinoza assigned to Tennessee Smokies.

– Tennessee Smokies transferred RHP Cade Horton to the Development List.

– Pitcher Frankie Scalzo was assigned to Tennessee Smokies.

– Iowa Cubs activated Brennan Davis and Ben Brown off the 7-day IL.

– Jake Washer placed on the Development List at Iowa.

I will be back around noon today with an update and then I will check back in occasionally throughout the afternoon and early evening right up to game time.

12:15 PM

Pretty quiet out there. Iowa emails and Myrtle Beach should be out soon.

1:45 PM

The Myrtle Beach email had no moves. Not surprised. If there are any moves today, they are likely to happen between South Bend and Tennessee, who don’t put out moves until late in the afternoon.

5:15 PM

I spent the afternoon in the dentist office. However, I did not miss anything as there are currently no transactions.

6 PM

Blake Whitney was sent back to Tennessee to make room for Anthony Kay at Iowa.
