Sorry about the multiple posts, but the roster moves continue.  Maybe that’s why I didn’t get the printable version in time for the other article.  Anyway:

INF Chris Nelson was released by the IronPigs.  He was hitting .278.  I thought he’d been playing well, but wasn’t hitting for power terribly well and had struck out 8 times in 16 games.  I didn’t get a chance to meet him, but I did enjoy watching him play–we wish him well.

RHP Severino Gonzalez was officially added to the roster after having been optioned to the ‘Pigs last weekend.  He’s scheduled to start on Sunday.

LHP Adam Loewen was activated from the TIL (Temporary Inactive List, Personal Reasons).

RHP Paul Clemens was added to the 7-day DL with a right foot strain–retroactive to May 3.  His last start was May 3.  He–along with new bull-pen resident LHP Joely Rodriguez–was one of the chief culprits in the high BB-rate for the IronPigs staff.  Hopefully he can get things right and come back and help us–his stuff can be somewhat electric when he can find the strike zone.

Printable Roster:

(John Hester will wear number 17, as Russ Canzler switches to 19 and the jersey name-plate people get an extra day to get it done with the Star Wars jerseys tonight.)

  1. Gotta think something was worked out regarding the release of Nelson by the Phillies. Chris Nelson is already on the AAA roster of the Colorado Springs Sky Soxx, Milwaukee Brewers organization.

  2. Nelson can’t hurt the IronPigs in the PCL 🙂
