This is a new feature, so there may be some trial and error at first. The goal is to provide a daily recap of the minor-league scores, as well as transactions and injury news.
Gwinnett 8, Columbus 3 (Game 2)
A bad day for the Clippers. In Game 1, Chris Seddon pitched all right, but the Clippers were held to just four hits. In Game 2, David Huff lasted only three innings; he was pounded for 8 runs (all earned) on 12 hits.
LHP Scott Barnes Optioned to Columbus (AAA)
C Dwight Childs Placed on 7-Day Disabled List (AAA)
Childs had been temporarily promoted from Carolina after Luke Carlin was DFAd - he was hitting .174/.191/.304 for the Mudcats.
T.J. House took the loss, allowing 7 ER and 13 hits in just 4 innings of work. Michel Hernandez, a 33-year-catcher, hit a home run for the Aeros. If Carlin doesn't stick with the organization, Hernandez might be the logical choice if the Indians need a backup catcher.
Placed IF Kyle Bellows on Disabled List (AA) - wrist
Activated OF Jordan Henry from Disabled List (AA)
It wasn't a good day for starting pitchers throughout the organization, for Carolina starter Mike Rayl got knocked around almost as bad as Huff in Columbus and House in Akron. He surrendered six earned runs in just 2 innings. Jesus Aguilar and Anthony Gallas each hit a homer for the Mudcats.
Demoted OF Delvi Cid to Mahoning Valley (SSA)
Lake County (A-)
Did I mention it was a bad day for starting pitchers? Joseph Colon pitched into the sixth, but he would be charged with 7 runs (6 earned) and allow 12 hits. Jordan Smith went 2-for-3 for the Captains, and Francisco Lindor would go 1-for-2 with a walk.
Demoted RHP Luis DeJesus to Mahoning Valley (SSA)
Promoted RHP Antwoine Hubbard from Extended Spring Training
