The LG promotion is hardly warranted. I guess they needed an OF at Carolina to replace Z. Clark. On the positive side, LG (499 OPS) is only having a slightly poorer season that Clark (502 OPS). So I guess there is that. Surprised they did not callup Dillard who is having a good season. Maybe they don't want to rush him. L.G. just seems like an odd choice, being that he is still very young (19).


My post in Friday's Link Report:

Nothing against LG Castillo, that has to be a really cool flight he's making to Lynchburg. But with a .499 OPS in 222 AB's, Castillo (who just recently turned only 20 years old) can join a struggling Mudcats team while others remain with the Rattlers, who are three games out of a wild card spot. We've seen this type of promotion in years past.[/quote]

From the Frontier League:

The long-rumored departure of Miners closer Jordan Brink became official. The Milwaukee Brewers signed Brink, making him the fourth player to exit Southern Illinois stage left in 2019.

In 31 games this year, Brink went 2-3 with a 2.04 earned run average and six saves, ascending to the ninth inning role just in time for the Miners’ recent surge into contention. Over 35 1/3 innings, Brink allowed only 23 hits and fanned 55, touching 99 mph with his fastball in a recent appearance.

“This could not be more deserved,” Southern Illinois manager Mike Pinto said in a press release. “Jordan has dominated all season. He came in with a vengeance thanks to his work in the offseason and it paid off for him. The Brewers not only got a great pitcher, but a great person to go with it.”

After going 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA as a senior at Fresno State, Brink started his pro career in the Cubs’ chain. It didn’t go well. Over parts of three seasons in which he never got out of short-season ball, Brink posted a 3-2 mark and a 3.94 ERA, enduring surgery for a torn labrum to boot.

But the 26-year old righty found his command this year, walking only 13, and his velocity was enough for Milwaukee to give him a shot.

This signing came about via Twitter, and specifically @PitchingNinja.

Here are the two tweets detailing that.

The thank you

Brewers sign soon-to-be 24-year-old switch-hitting OF/IF Randy Rodriguez, a Dominican native and former Dodger farmhand, with only one year of pro ball experience (Dominican Summer League, 2018).

Rodriguez made his Brewer debut Saturday with the DSL Brewers.

The age factor certainly makes this a unique signing with a week to go in the DSL season.

Brewers released 25-year-old 2015 12th round (University of Tennessee) LHP Drake Owenby.

Owenby missed the 2nd half of his Timber Rattler 2016 season with shoulder inflammation. His 2017 season was also cut short, and he missed all of 2018 with a left elbow strain before undergoing Tommy John surgery last August 9th. Owenby made three rehab appearances in Maryvale this month.

We wish Drake well and congratulate him on the fortitude he showed just to work through the rehab process as he did. I'm sure fellow southpaw Brent Suter, on almost the same Tommy John timeline, wishes his rehab partner well also.

San Antonio:

RH reliever Luke Barker 7-day injured list on 8/19 (retro to 8/17).

Via Jerry Briggs of the Missions:

Rick Sweet said he isn't sure whether Saladino can return by the end of the regular season. "I think we'll know more in the next couple of days," Sweet said. "It's a good question. It's a question I have asked. He's doing better. He's feeling better. But he's been dealing with this for two months. It's not something that just happened."

C Tuffy Gosewisch activated again on 8/21 from Vibes' paper roster.

C Skyler Ewing to the Vibes' paper roster on 8/21.

C/1B David Freitas to the IL on 8/23 (retro to 8/20) - rib injury, due back soon.

***

Carolina:

OF Zach Clark activated from the IL on 8/21.

C Nathan Rodriguez placed on the IL on 8/21.

***

Wisconsin:

RHP Reese Olson to Wisconsin from Rocky Mountain paper roster.

***

Maryvale:

19-year-old 2nd-year-pro Dominican RHP Abner Uribe, who pitched for the DSL Brewers in 2018 but had yet to appear in a game in 2019, has been activated for the Maryvale Blue team (two relief appearances thus far).

***

DSL Brewers:

Nader Garcia, a 17-year-old LH-hitting catcher out of Venezuela, signed with the Brewers on June 15th, but only recently debuted with the DSL Brewers squad.

Pretty awesome for Feliciano after those injury plagued seasons the last few years!

The Brewers have signed, we'll call him IF/OF, Carlos Moreno, a 20-year-old Dominican native and RH-bat who was released by the Yankees after his rookie season of 2018.

Moreno primarily saw action as a corner infielder last year, but made his DSL Brewers debut in left field today (Friday 8/16 box score, 1-for-3, two K's)


Both Moreno and Rodriguez were released after the DSL season ended.

Kind of a surprising move, but the Brewers released P Logan Gillaspie in September per Baseball America.

Gillaspie made 31 appearances with Wisconsin this year, 16 of those being starts. He was also selected to play in the 2019 Midwest League All-Star Game.

Wow, I'd like to see an explanation for this move.
