Transactions Notes: 8/11/11 - 8/17/11

8/11/11

AA:
- Matt McBride placed on the 7 Day Disabled List.
- Jeffrey Squier assigned to Tulsa Drillers from Tri-City Dust Devils.

Back again for Squier. For the second time, Squier has been sent off from roster filler duty in Tulsa back to the Dust Devils, only to be returned suddenly when another player was DL bound. McBride only got into two games with the Drillers since being acquired in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade before suffering a strained oblique.

A-:
- Erik Stavert released.

Stavert was part of the 6 man rotation at Asheville earlier in the year before falling on the DL in late June. With no room in Asheville, Stavert was sent Tri-City for a chance to pitch. After just one 2 inning outing, the Rockies chose to release the 2009 7th rounder, likely feeling that there was simply no room to develop him anywhere.

 

8/12/11

MLB:
- Huston Street placed on the 15 Day Disabled List.
- Jason Giambi activated from the 15 Day Disabled List.

With the promotion of Edgar Gonzalez last week, the Rockies were carrying an extra pitcher. This move returns the roster to a normal split of pitchers and position players. Street goes to the DL with a right triceps strain, and is eligible to return 8/24.

AAA:
- Andy Graham placed on the 7 Day Disabled List.
- Ian Stewart activated from the Reserve List.

Stewart was optioned from the Rockies two days previous for the third time this season. His second option year has been burned in the process. Graham heads to the DL with a right forearm contusion. The Sky Sox are operating a man short in the bullpen.

 

8/13/11

AAA:
- Mike Jacobs placed on the Temporarily Inactive List.
- Radames Nazario placed on the 7 Day Disabled List.
- Cole Garner activated from the 7 Day Disabled List.
- Willy Taveras activated from the 7 Day Disabled List.

The Sky Sox get a much needed pair of outfielders. Garner was placed on the DL recently, but had already spent nearly a week out of the game, trying to rest the injury off. Taveras had strained a hamstring in July. There were rumblings of Jacobs being called up for this game, but I have no way of knowing how close that was or wasn't to happening. The Sky Sox had to make a move regardless, so the TIL is the most obvious destination. Of course, details that came to light today regarding Jacob's suspension and release make all this moot. Nazario has been on and off both the DL and TIL all season.

 

8/14/11

A-:
- Jordan Ribera activated from the 7 Day Disabled List.

Ribera has been on the disabled list since late July. No corresponding move was necessary, as the Dust Devils are below their maximum roster limit.

 

8/15/11

MLB:
- Edgar Gonzalez designated for assignment.
- J.C. Romero signed and assigned to Colorado Rockies.

Gonzalez got into one game with the club during his time up. Romero represents a better option in the pen through the rest of the season than Gonzalez. The two traded both 25 man and 40 man roster spots. Gonzalez has been outrighted before in his career, and has the right to refuse assignment to the minors.

Other:
- Tyler Anderson signed.

2011's #1 draft pick signed at the deadline. He has not yet been assigned to a team, and may not be this year.

 

8/16/11

A-:
- William Rankin assigned to Tri-City Dust Devils from Casper Ghosts.
- Jeremiah Sammy assigned to Tri-City Dust Devils from Casper Ghosts.

Rankin, a 2011 draftee, was expected to start the season with the Dust Devils, but was sent to the Ghosts at the last minute. Sammy, on the other hand, has spent most of his career with the Dust Devils, as a position player. Since beginning his pro career in 2009, his time with Casper converting to pitching this year is his only time away from Tri-City.

Other:
- Ching Lung Lo released.

A former pitching prospect who has been with the organization since 2002, Lo had been re-signed in the offseason to a one year deal as one last chance to break out for the team. Injured for the first half, and unable to find a consistent rhythm in Tri-City. The organization allowed him a brief bit of time on Modesto's roster, before abandoning the project.

 

8/17/11

AA:
- Josh Sullivan placed on the 7 Day Disabled List.
- Drew Pomeranz acquired from the Cleveland Indians and assigned to Tulsa Drillers.

Sullivan has bounced around this year, on and off the roster as well as two brief stints in the bullpen. He leaves the roster with a sprained ankle to make room for Pomeranz, the final piece of the Jimenez trade official at last. Pomeranz' brother, Stu Pomeranz, played for these same Drillers last year.
