Redman to Revolutionize Baltimore: According to the York Revolution website, OF Tike Redman has been signed by the Baltimore Orioles and will report to their Triple-A affiliate in Ottawa.
At the time of his departure, Redman was leading the league in hitting with a .464 batting average in his first seven games.
A player like Redman is exactly why the league was created. It was so obvious that he had no business in the Atlantic League, but if the league wasn’t around, where would he play…
Perhaps this means more playing time for Peter Bergeron, who was “given the series off” against Somerset.
Junge To Yankees: The Bridgeport Bluefish have lost starter Eric Junge to the New York Yankees organization. Junge, a former Philadelphia Phillie, will report to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre.
In two games with the Bluefish, he posted a 1.29 ERA in 5.1 innings of work.
Acuna Signs With Ducks: OF Ron Acuna is the newest Long Island Duck, signing with the team and joining the active roster today.
Acuna is a 27-year-old Venezuela native who has extensive time in the Mets organziation. Last season, he was with the Brewers Double-A affiliate in Huntsville.
Pats Activate Cannon: The Patriots will have a new player of their own for their series in Long Island, and it’s a former Duck. As has been reported here and elsewhere, P Jon Cannon has signed with the team and has been activated today. He will likely start tomorrow against his former team.
Aqueron To Camden: Rene Aqueron, who started the season on the Road Warriors, is back in Camden. He hit .308 in three games with the league’s road club. I’m still hearing things about a big league pitcher headed there, so stay tuned…
Also, the Riversharks have traded P Bryan Edwards to Bridgeport. Edwards has a 22.50 ERA in two appearances so far this season, and was acquired for the ever-popular “future considerations.”
So basically here’s how this all worked out…
Bridgeport loses Junge, Bridgeport gets Edwards from Camden. Camden gets Aqueron from RW to fill empty roster spot. Hooray BASA!
Just Another Mannix Monday: The Road Warriors have deactivated pitcher Kevin Mannix. The former Duck was 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in two starts this season. – Mike Ashmore
