IronPigs Roster Transactions 6/2/2015

With only three catchers on the roster, the IronPigs made a move today to swap one out.  Logan Moore has been sent back to Reading in exchange for Gabriel Lino.

Lino came to the Phillies organization in 2012, along with RHP Kyle Simon, from the Orioles organization in exchange for 1B/DH Jim Thome.  He just turned 22 on May 22, and stands 6’3″, 200lbs.  He bats and throws right-handed. He spent most of last season in Clearwater other than a couple weeks in Lakewood.  This season, he started in Reading and has hit .266/.333/.431 in 32 games with the Reading franchise, with 3 HR and 9 doubles.  He’s struck out 25 times and walked 10 times in 109 at-bats.  Behind the plate he’s thrown out an astonishing 48.4% of potential base stealers.  Something to watch:  There are some close observers who suggest than Gabriel doesn’t receive the ball particularly well from left-handed pitchers–that’s something to watch if he catches Joely tonight.  Will Joely get the strike calls on those close pitches?

ICYMI:  As we expected, last night Grady Sizemore was officially released by the Phillies after passing unclaimed through waivers.  He’s now a free agent.

I was kind of expecting an outfielder move before the game today…Altherr?  Brown up?  Kelly Dugan off DL?  Keep your eyes out for that one late, but for now, here’s a revised, printable roster for tonight:

See you at the park,
