RHSP Shane Dyer has been assigned back to the Montgomery Biscuits from the Durham Bulls.
RHRP Alex Koronis has been assigned to the Charlotte Stone Crabs from the Montgomery Biscuits.
July 2nd international signings:
- Catcher Erick Maria from the Dominican Republic for $300,000. Was Eric Otanez and 16 last year, now he's Maria and 18.
- RHP Jose Mujica, 16, out of Venezuela for $1,000,000. More on him.
- RHP Deivy Mendez, 16, from the Dominican Republic for $120,000.
- Catcher David Rodriguez, 16, out of Venezuela. More on him.
Not sure about Maria/Otanez, but none of the 16 year-olds will play in any games until next year since they signed 2013 contracts.
And here are the evening moves:
The Durham Bulls have activated outfielder Brandon Allen from the temporarily inactive list. Players can be put on the TI list for just about any reason. The drawback is that the player needs to miss 3 games before they are eligible to be activated, and Allen did.
The Durham Bulls activated RHRP Brandon Gomes and LHRP Cesar Ramos, back once again from the Rays.
Outfielder Jeff Salazar has been assigned to the Hudson Valley Renegades from the Durham Bulls. Paper move.
The Durham Bulls placed C/OF Stephen Vogt (symptoms of concussion) on the 7-day disabled list. He left Sunday's game after the second inning and went 0-1 in his only plate appearance, snapping his on-base streak of 27 consecutive games. From 5/31 to 6/30 Vogt reached base in every game he played in, going 40-110 (.364) with 6 2B, 3B, 5 HR, 19 RBI, and 17 BB with a .446 OBP.
And some post-game news:
Charlotte Stone Crabs outfielder Mikie Mahtook left tonight's game in the first inning after crashing into the outfield wall.
Per Bowling Green beat reporter Micheal Compton (@mcompton428), Hot Rods outfielder Todd Glaesmann left tonight's game in the 8th inning after being hit by a pitch on his left hand. Compton tweeted this update after the game:
No official word on Glaesmann from Brady Williams post game. He got hit on top of hand and was sent to hospital for X-Rays.
Rays outfielder/DH Hideki Matsui left the game after the top of the 2nd inning with left hamstring tightness. More on his status from...
Manager Joe Maddon: “Hamstring tightness. Not on the first play where it came back on him. I think it was on the second play where he ran towards the wall in the corner. So he’s just a little bit tight. He did mention it of course so we’re not going to mess with that. So, we’ll know more tomorrow. But we’re just gonna say it’s tight for now."
Hideki Matsui: “The foul ball that Jeter hit, I was running after that and I felt like I pulled something; something tightened up. So when I came back to the dugout, they told me that for precautionary reasons to come out of the game. Right now I feel like it has calmed down, so I think it just tightened up. … I think it’s going to be a few days, but not to the point where I would go to the DL."
