In an odd coincidence, both of the Dominican Summer League rookie RHP's name "Chourio" were placed on the 60-day injured list on the same day Wednesday, ending both of their seasons.

Juan Chourio, age 17, made four relief appearances this summer for the co-op w/Indians squad, none lasting longer than an inning, and last pitched on June 13th.

Wilkerman Chourio, age 18, made his pro debut and only appearance to date back on June 4th for the full Brewers team. He walked three and allowed a run in his one inning.

Both Chourio's were born in the same city in Venezuela - newly-added photos at the links.

At Rocky Mountain, LHP Blake Lillis, with an injury history (missed all of 2017 with ulnar neuritis), was placed on the Vibes' 7-day IL. Lillis had made only one appearance this year, a 4.1 inning start back on June 16th. No word on the nature of this new injury.


That was on 7/16. Lillis has subsequently been placed on the 60-day DL. Bummer for the still just 21-year-old.

Brewers reach into the independent ranks yet again, RHP Dylan Prohoroff gets his contract purchased from the Windy City Thunderbolts (Crestwood, Illinois) of the Frontier League, as per the league's transactions page.

An 8th round pick of the Pirates in 2016 out of Cal-State Fullerton, the now-24-year-old opened his pro career at an aggressive full-season ball placement at low-A West Virginia, where he repeated in 2017, combining for 61 appearances, all in relief.

Prohoroff opened 2018 with the same affiliate yet again in 2018, but only made three appearances. He'd spend the balance of the season on the disabled list, haven't determined the cause just yet.

Pittsburgh released him in spring training this year, and then Prohoroff latched on to the independent opportunity.

Prohoroff has a pending assignment to the Timber Rattlers, it appears.

After six relief appearances (8 IP, 1 ER), Prohoroff has been shifted to the Rocky Mountain roster.

LHP Danny Coulombe has been signed to a minor league contract, as noted above.

Did he ask for his release from the Yankees? 42 K's in 22.2 IP this year. All the career numbers at the link.

Having pitched in MLB only for the West Coast Dodgers and A's, has there been a more anonymous 153 career big league appearances in terms of current recognition by Brewer fans?


Formally added to the San Antonio roster on Friday.

Via the Shuckers we learn that:

INF Luis Aviles Jr. has been placed on the IL, while C Skyler Ewing has been transferred to Biloxi from San Antonio.

***

Aviles had been on the IL from 7/8 to 7/18, so this is essentially back-to-back stints, no word on the injury nature or severity.

INF Alberis Ferrer and LHP Keiner Alfaro swap DSL clubs, with Ferrer headed to the main club and Alfaro off to the co-op.

RHP Johan Belisario made another spot start for the Missions, but has since been shifted back to the Biloxi roster.

RHP Aaron Wilkerson and C David Freitas both have been placed on San Antonio's Temp Inactive List.

OF Tyrone Taylor was activated off of the Missions' IL (again), and RHP Zack Brown was activated off of the Temp Inactive List.

RHP Jacob Barnes was also activated from the Missions' IL, with fellow RHP and probably-not-injured Jon Olczak going on the Missions IL.

18-year-old Venezuelan 2nd-year-pro (first-year stateside) RHP Leoner Colina has been placed on the Maryvale Blue 60-day DL. He last pitched on July 1st and only pitched in two outings this summer. He really limited the earned runs and was trusted with a starting rotation spot (13 starts) in his rookie DSL campaign in 2018 as a 17-year-old.

Also hitting the 60-day DL is recently-turned 18-year-old corner OF and 2nd year pro Jhonny David. Last week his team assignment was moved from the DSL to Maryvale, but apparently that was due to rehab of some sort. David posted a nice but small sample (12 game, 35 AB sample) .797 OPS as a 16/17-year-old in his rookie season last summer on his native island, but has yet to suit up in 2019.

And That said:
RHP Luis Contreras transferred from the AZL to Wisconsin.


To remind folks about the Contreras signing this spring from the independent United Shore League --

“In the offseason, (Eastside Manager) Paul Noce told us he found a pitcher that would be a perfect fit for the USPBL and Luis Contreras was exactly that,” said Director of Baseball Operations Justin Orenduff. “He arrived at the USPBL with a tremendous work ethic, passion for learning, and embodied what it means to be a pitcher. Contreras throws three pitches for strikes and can elevate his fastball with high spin which made him the league leader in strikeouts. We look forward to his success in the Brewers organization.”

Contreras, a native of Pembroke Pines, Fla., struck out a league-best 39 batters in 23.0 innings pitched. He finished with a record of 2-2 and earned one save. Contreras combined for a one-hit shutout on May 25th against the Utica Unicorns.

“The league, staff, crowd and fans makes the USPBL a great experience for a bunch of players that want to keep fighting for their dreams,” said Contreras. “I want to thank the entire USPBL staff and Sandy (Wilton) for placing me in the host family program and giving me the opportunity to meet my new family, the DiLoddo’s.”



***

Although a native of Florida as listed above, MiLB.com's Player Page lists the 23-year-old as having been born in Venezuela.

Not only that, but the player page lists Contreras as being assigned to the now-defunct Venezuelan Summer League as a Cubs farmhand in May 2015. Contreras would have just turned 19 years old at that time, which makes the note plausible, though it appears he never pitched there.

Now that he's with the Timber Rattlers, we'll ask Chris and Kyle to check in as to what happened during that four-year stretch. It's possible that's just an erroneous footnote by MiLB.

Its odd how the Brewers have managed the two Arizona rosters. It seems they are favoring the Gold roster. They have consistently kept the gold roster at around 36 players and the Blue roster around 30. The transfer of Yi is a good example. Why would they do this, when Colina is also placed on the DL, leaving them now down two pitchers?
I'm sure there is enough players to go around still, but it just seems curious.

I just love the fact that our readers are even into such minutia (saying that in a good way, not a condescending one).

That would be a little worrisome that the Gold roster would be the favorite given they are 8-23

It seems when looking over the Gold roster it's mostly just DSL crap that'll be out of affiliated ball in a year or two. Less of a bias with the pitching but still plenty of guys who aren't exactly strike throwers.

Welcome back to the Missions lineup, David Freitas, back from the paternity list (all is well).

***

In hopefully just a temporary move, Missions RHP Luke Barker hits the 7-day IL.

Catcher Tuffy Gosewisch and INF Blake Allemand again caught in a roster crunch, moved to the paper Rocky Mountain roster while remaining with San Antonio.

***

Non-drafted LHP Ian Exposito, the just-turned 23-year-old out of Florida International, and effective in five appearances (four starts) thus far, gets shifted from AZL Blue to AZL Gold.
