Game Recaps 6/26
Today, RHP Frank Herrmann was sent to Mahoning Valley and RHP T.J. Burton was placed on the disabled list with a strained left calf. Taking their spots on the Akron roster are LHP Ryan Edell and RHP Luis Perdomo. The move of Herrmann to Mahoning Valley is just a paper move as he was not really sent there. They do these kind of moves when they need to finagle a starter onto the team. Herrmann will likely be activated and then another pitch sent to Mahoning Valley soon, and the process will repeat. Also, the "strained left calf" for T.J. Burton is likely just another paper move to get Perdomo to Akron. Surprisingly, Newsom is still in Akron even after Perdomo was called up. Perhaps Newsom will be on the move in the next day or so, possibly as soon as Jeff Stevens is called up to Cleveland.
Also, more movement in Single-A with Lake County RHP Vinnie Pestano being promoted to Kinston. Lake County has not filled Pestano's spot at this time. 1B Dustin Realini also was put on the disabled list with facial injuries and LHP Kelvin De La Cruz was activated. No word yet on what happened to Realini, but word is it was not a fight or a car accident. He is expected to be out a few weeks.
