MOBILE, Ala. – The Milwaukee Brewers and Huntsville Stars have made a couple of roster moves prior to tonight’s game against the Mobile BayBears. OF Khris Davis was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to June 7. Davis was just activated off the DL on June 4. To fill the vacant roster spot, OF Scott Krieger has been promoted from High-A Brevard County.

With these moves, the Stars active roster sits at 25, the Southern League limit.

***

We believe it's still the calf injury Khris can't quite shake.

I find this Khris Davis situation especially irritating, how about sending him back to AZ where he can get regular treatment and rehabilitation?

American Fork, Utah and Utah Valley University product Mangum signs with Brewers
Neil K. Warner - Provo (Utah) Daily Herald

The Major League Baseball draft came and went last week and it seemed as though so did Taylor Mangum’s chances of playing professional baseball.

Mangum was hoping he would be chosen in one of the 40 rounds of the draft, but when the draft ended on Wednesday and he wasn’t chosen, the American Fork native decided to get away from the disappointment and distractions of the draft.

Mangum spent Saturday afternoon hiking with his girlfriend in American Fork canyon. That’s when he saw one of the strangest things - his mother driving up the canyon, honking the horn, trying to get his attention.

“The Milwaukee Brewers have been trying to get a hold of you, they want to sign you.”

Free agency is a beautiful thing.

Mangum, 22, thought he may not get a chance to see how his 94-95 mile-an-hour fastball would fare at the next level, but now he will.

On Sunday, he was bound for Arizona where he will join the Brewers farm system and likely begin his career in Phoenix or in Helena.

If he is assigned to Helena, that means he would get a chance to pitch against the Orem Owlz. The Helena Brewers could feature three local players since BYU’s Austin Hall and Utah’s Tyler Wagner were both drafted by the Brewers.

“It’s a dream come true. Being at Utah Valley was a great experience for me,” Mangum said. “Dave (Carter) and Eric (Madsen) did so much for me. I’ve grown a lot and was given a great opportunity to play at home.”

Carter, UVU’s pitching coach, thought Mangum would be drafted somewhere between rounds 15-20. His velocity and ability to throw an above average slider and curveball made him an intriguing prospect, so he wasn’t surprised the Brewers wanted to sign him as a free agent.

“The dumb thing is to think you know how it’s (the draft) going to pan out. It’s like trying to predict the score of a game,” Carter said. “He’s got a chance. He’s touched 95 before and when his ball is moving and he throws strikes he’s pretty effective. He’s very capable he’s going to have a chance.”

Mangum finished his career at UVU with a 6-0 record. He had a 5.44 ERA in 44 innings of work.

MiLB.com's Southern League Transactions Page indicates INF Matt Cline has been suspended; he had been ejected (along with RHP Tyler Thornburg and UT Juan Sanchez) from the brawl game in Mobile earlier this week.

No word on the length of suspension. While it seems Juan Sanchez might have avoided suspension for now, it's possible his may kick in after Cline's expires. But for now, we'll assume it's Cline only.

It's been a miserable 2012 for the 26-year-old Cline (.410 OPS).

From Brevard:

OF Miguel Velazquez has been activated from the disabled list. He will be active tonight against Daytona.

Manatees' roster back to the 25-man active limit.

(Jimmy Nelson's actual move off the Brevard roster isn't official until Wednesday, so expect more activity then.)

2011 36th round RHP Mitch Conner out of Elon (NC) University just tweeted that he's scheduled for Tommy John surgery next week, he had yet to pitch with any of the full-season teams this season.

Here's wishing him well...

At Wisconsin, catcher Tyler Roberts was acticated off the seven-day DL, while IF (occasional utility OF) Adrian Williams was assigned to Helena.

Wonder if Williams is still physically with the Rattlers; he's been on the team all season, bummer for him if he had to depart prior to any division-clinching celebration.

To make room for Jimmy Nelson in Huntsville, the Stars placed RHP Evan Anundsen on the 7-day DL, retroactive to 6/11. Hopefully everything's going to be fine with Evan, who was hit hard (a rare event this year) in his most recent outing.

The Manatees are playing one man down, at 24, until a subsequent move is made to backfill Nelson's spot.

Adam at the Brewers' site

The Brewers finalized plans for three injured players ready to start rehabilitation assignments with Triple-A Nashville. Shortstop Cesar Izturis (left hamstring) will begin playing for the Sounds on Friday and first baseman Travis Ishikawa (left rib cage) will follow on Saturday.

Right-hander Marco Estrada (right quadriceps) will start Saturday for the Sounds, the first of two outings before the Brewers decide whether to reinstate him to the starting rotation.

***

Jake Odorizzi is scheduled to face the Sounds Sunday. If Brian Baker backs up Estrada's start, then we're likely looking at Wily Peralta vs. Odorizzi.

Via Mark McCarter of the Huntsville Times:

The Stars are playing a bit shorthanded and dealing with injuries. Matt Cline has completed the last of a three-game league-mandated suspension. Thornburg and infielder Juan Sanchez begin three-game suspensions today; Thornburg will miss a start and not pitch until next Tuesday's Southern League All-Star Game.

"Other teams have injuries," Manager Darnell Coles said of his team's current eight-game losing streak. "Other teams are shorthanded. The nine guys we have on the field have to find a way to play together and execute the gameplan."

who would have thought that Izturis/Ishikawa's return would be a welcoming sight for the brewers bench???

From the Rattlers:

LHP Will West has been transferred to Helena. IF Carlos George has been activated off the DL

***

West, still a teenager, acquitted himself well. We'll probably see him in Wisconsin again later this summer.

The Brewers have signed 22-year-old (3/21/1990) RHP Rodolfo Fernandez, a pitcher from San Cristobal, Cuba, who last pitched for the Industriales squad within the Cuban national baseball system.

Fernandez is currently in workouts in Montana with the Helena club from where he is expected to be on the Opening Day H-Crew roster.

He's listed at 6'2", 220 (nice).

Other than that, little seems available.

In addition to what the J-S guys and MLB.com might learn eventually, we'll send Amber Kuehn a note at the Helena Independent Record. She does a fantastic job with their beat coverage and should be able to feature Fernandez and provide us details on his refuge story and eventual signing.
