LHP Elvis Araujo added to Lehigh Valley roster (optioned by PHI, 6/26).
LHP Mario Hollands assigned to Reading (AA).
As expected, Araujo reclaims uniform number 54.
The IronPigs now have 74 roster moves in 78 games.
I didn’t think Hollands had pitched that poorly, but this might be a matter of getting the lefty some work while Araujo needs to re-gain his mojo at AAA. With Reading home right now as well, I don’t think it’s a sign of a problem with Hollands so much as a shuffling and a short straw. He’ll be back–or he might even proceed to the Majors depending on how things break.
See you at the park,
