Roster update

There were a few moves made yesterday, June 21, that we started to discuss in one of the comment threads. Here is a little more information.

Ben Pfinsgraff was promoted from Lakewood (more info below)

Welinson Baez was sent to Lakewood.

Kevin Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Still haven't seen any details of the trade. The Dodgers assigned him to the Jacksonville Suns (Double-A).

Jesus Sanchez was added from the GCL Phillies. I haven't seen any transactions for today, but I expect he will be headed back to the Complex very soon.

Some background on Ben Pfinsgraff:

Ben Pfinsgraff - Pfinsgraff is a 6'0" 180lb pitcher from Annapolis, Maryland. He played his college ball at Allegheny College before transferring to the University of Maryland-College Park. He was selected by the Phillies in the 22nd round of the 2006 draft. After signing with the Phillies, he was assigned to Batavia. Near the end of the year he was promoted to Lakewood. He primarily has come out of the bullpen for the BlueClaws this year, and had a 2-1 record with a 2.43 ERA in 33.1 innings before his promotion. He has struck out 38 and only walked six in 2007 which is good for a strikeout to walk ratio of 6.3 to 1.

And now we have Javon Moran down from Reading. Anyone know anything about Nic Jackson? I haven't seen him at the last few games, but he is still listed on the Threshers roster.
