TRANSACTIONS/ROSTER MOVES

It's been a quiet few days on the transaction front with the main news being that, although he is now eligible to  come off the DL, SS Alex Bregman has not been activated for the Hooks at this time. That is not unsurprising since the Astros are likely to be extra cautious with one of their top prospects. The only other recent move I've seen is ...

4-30: C Marlon Avea assigned to Quad Cities

STANDINGS

Fresno has inched closer to .500 since we last checked, but more importantly, they have gone from 2.5 games behind to only half a game behind thanks to a four-game losing streak by the league leading Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners). The Hooks, however, have dropped six straight, and are now a full 8.0 games behind Frisco (Rangers). They have won only one game since Alex Bregman went on the DL.  Lancaster has been treading water over the last few days and they remain in fourth place, 7.5 games behind High Desert (Rangers). Quad Cities has clawed their way back from last (8th) place and are now only four games behind the league leaders Clinton (Mariners).
