  1. Keith Castillo had a rbi in bottom of the 9th to tie it for BG ,he is still on 7-day dl

    how can this be ?

  2. I saw that too. When they moved the 3 to the restricted list they must have activated Castillo for last night's game. It wasn't announced to us or on I added him to the active roster when I saw him playing, but there is still no move today. I imagine when Lopez gets there they will make another move, maybe with Castillo. Maybe milb just turned their head for a game in light of the suspensions, don't know.

  3. And here's the move back to the DL:

    Bowling Green, KY – In conjunction with the Tampa Bay Rays, the Bowling Green Hot Rods announce that LHP Reinaldo Lopez has been received from Short Season-A Hudson Valley. In a corresponding move, C Keith Castillo has been placed on the Disabled List. The moves leave the Hot Rods 25-man roster at its full capacity.

    1. Lopez isn't a lefty of course, but they'll figure that out when he gets to Kentucky.
