LHP Cesar Jimenez had contract selected by Philadelphia.
RHP Seth Rosin activated off the Temporary Inactive List.
1B Tommy Joseph activated off the DL.
1B Chris McGuiness released by Philadelphia.
INF Russ Canzler activated off the DL.
INF Cord Phelps placed on the Temporary Inactive List (personal).
RHP Severino Gonzalez activated off the DL.
INF KC Serna assigned to Reading (AA) from Lehigh Valley.
Tommy returns to play 1B and DH, as does Russ Canzler. With the moves, Chris McGuiness becomes expendable. Chris wasn’t having a great season, but he always had good at-bats and saw lots of pitches. He was the team leader in walks and among the league leaders in that category.
For today’s day/night doubleheader (actually the third in team history despite what the press release said) RHP Jerad Eickhoff will start the 12:05PM game, while RHP Sev Gonzalez will handle the nightcap. Reports are that RHP David Buchanan will be activated in time to handle starting duties in tomorrow’s affair. We’ll have to wait and see how things shake out after the off-day on Monday as the Pigs head up the turnpike to Moosic for three games starting Tuesday.
