RHP Chris Leroux promoted to Lehigh Valley from Reading (AA).

RHP Colton Murray assigned to Reading (AA) from Lehigh Valley.

INF Cord Phelps activated off the Temporary Inactive List.

RHP Jason Berken placed on the Temporary Inactive List (personal).

Printable Roster:

2015 LHV Roster 8-16

(138 roster moves in 121 games)


I doubt Leroux made the drive to Reading–or Trenton for that matter–as the roster world turns.  Berken pitched a bunch last night as he and McGowan just narrowly escaped losing the game late.  The ‘Pigs taking full advantage of the TIL (Temporary Inactive List) rather than the “Velandia Shin Contusion” on the 7-day DL.  I suppose the advantage is that you can be activated in less than 7 days–3 to be exact.  “Just sit here TIL we need you.”

Meanwhile, we await news on the rotation.  The ‘Pigs now have a plethora of starters, and a day off tomorrow.  The Phillies will need a fifth guy by Saturday at the latest.  Buchanan was optioned on the 12th and could theoretically go back up for Saturday the 22nd (has to be “down” 10 days) if he earns it today.  Otherwise, they could scratch Eickhoff during the week and activate him for Saturday.

This post was delayed awaiting the game notes–which lists “TBA” for each game of the Scranton series, starting on Tuesday.  In Kramskorner we’ll await news of the starters before deciding which game(s) to go to….I believe the RailFrogs lead the IronRail series 7-6 at this point, which means that they could clinch with a sweep.  Hopefully, some good pitching for us at PNC Field this time around…

See you in Moosic?

  1. Doug Heater got a list of planned hurlers from Brundy, I believe he said Vasquez would go Thursday and Buchanan, today’s starter, was to go again next Sunday. Without DVR no way I’d remember the others, but Heater said Tom Housenick was with him, so he might have something on the mcall site.
