Paolo Espino and Charlie Meyer have been moved from Helena's roster to Colorado Springs' DL. Like Jim mentioned, the Brewers have reached the time of year where they can't use the rookie ball rosters to stash players as much. Don't know if either Espino or Meyer are actually injured, probably not, but we'll pass on info if we find out something.

The Sky Sox' active roster currently features 14 pitchers and 3 catchers, which is... interesting.

Also, Devin Williams posted on Instagram that he is in Carolina so I bet he's activated soon.

Davis has since found work in the Mexican League with Dos Laredos, and so for the moment, his stateside independent league work is done.

At Biloxi, LH reliever Quintin Torres-Costa comes off the 7-day DL after just over the minimum stint.

To make room, INF Darren Seferina is placed on the DL retro to June 5th.

Robledo didn't actually sign, as IIRC he failed a physical.

At Carolina, RHP Alec Crawford comes off the 7-day DL after a two-week stint there. RHP Braulio Ortiz, who has struggled since his bump up from Wisconsin, is placed on the DL.

The Brewers have added three more Latin players to their DSL roster, though all three have been placed on the restricted list as they wait to be activated:

RHP Deybi Arias, born 5/27/01;
OF Starling Javier, born 12/17/00; and,
RHP Wellington Nunez, born 10/17/99.

We'll link to their milb.com pages once they're up.

Nunez is listed at 6'2", 171, and is a Dominican native. The 18-year-old should make his debut any day now, as he's been assigned to the DSL Brewers.

No formal word yet on the others in terms of assignment or activation.

The Brewers have reportedly signed 16-year-old Chinese RHP Jolon Lun (also listed as Jolon Zhao). The young man from Beijing got his start at the MLB Development Center in China.

The infamous Rob Friedman @PitchingNinja account recently tweeted about Lun, after being given a heads-up from this exciting Instagram post linked in the tweet.

Be sure to read all the replies to that tweet.

Zhao was with his Alexandria (VA) Aces of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League at the time of his signing, playing with college kids a few years older.

The team's bullpen has a Twitter account and is having some fun with the news tonight via this tweet (that's not the definitive source of the news [wink]).

One of the very few online references to Zhao is this inclusion of his on a Unites States Amateur Baseball League page, listed at 5'9", 165, but hey, that's at age 16.

Brief 2016 video in this tweet.

There's this from January 2017.

Looks like the team got Zhao to join Twitter this month as well.

Game story from June 8th: "From there the bullpen took over, most notably when 16 year old phenom Jolon Lun struck out three batters for all three outs in the seventh. It was the first appearance from the young gun, and marked the youngest player to ever appear in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League."

We should have additional confirmations in the coming day or two.

Now that is a nice find. Both by you and the Brewers. Tops out at 95!

Mass,

Would this signing be for the 2017 July 2nd signing period or 2018? Which bonus pool would his money go to?

Thanks.

It should be for this period because he's already signed. I'm trying to track down bonus information.

This is sort of shades of Ernesto Martinez' signing towards the end of the 2016-2017 period last year. Guessing as in that case, the Brewers used whatever remaining money they had to sign Lun.
