Roster Moves

Sorry, guys, this blog is in no way affiliated with Bobby Heck although he was nice enough to give me an interview a while back. The "announcement" of Jay Austin's release came from me looking at today's transactions on

Corpus Christi
C Ben Heath went on the 7-day DL.

LHP  Pat Urckfitz was placed on the 7-day DL.
RHP Zach Grimmett was activated from the DL.
OF Grant Hogue was activated from the DL.

CF Jay Austin (2008 2nd round pick) has been released.
OF Chris Epps has been assigned from Lancaster to Lexington.

SS Jean Batista was assigned from Greeneville to Tri-City.
LHP Scott Zuloaga was assigned from Greeneville to Tri-City.
RHP Euris Quezada was assigned from Greeneville to Tri-City.


  1. thanks for the update. Bummer to see Austin go.

  2. I've got to say that I'm surprised about Austin. I was still pulling for him.

  3. 2 playoff races are definitely affected by these late season roster changes. The loss of Jean Carlos Batista's bat can hurt Greeneville as the make a playoff push. Moreover, I was wondering about how Tri-City would perform after their recent promotions also. It is shaping up to be an exciting last couple weeks of the minor league season....
