Astros Farm Report: 6-6

A couple of roster moves and a brief video in today's abbreviated Astros Farm Report

TRANSACTIONS/ROSTER MOVES

6-5: RHP Kevin Comer activated from the 7-day DL
6-3: RHP Justin Ferrell activated from the 7-day DL

It was a surprise for me to see Kevin Comer headed to the bullpen shortly before yesterday's game. Comer disappeared to the DL back in April and I hadn't heard another word about him since. According to Comer, he had a shoulder issue and has been rehabbing in Kissimmee. I hope to see him back in action while I'm in Lancaster. I would love to see Comer get consistent back-end relief work. I think he will really shine in that role.

Another pending move is the addition of  C Gabriel Bracamonte here in Lancaster. He hasn't been added to the roster yet, though. When I saw him in his catcher's gear, I was confused because his build was not that of Garrett Stubbs or Jamie Ritchie. He reminds me of Roberto Pena, build-wise. Let's hope he's as proficient behind the plate as Pena is.

LAGNIAPPE

One thing I'd been eager to see in person was RHP Jacob Dorris whose unorthodox pitching style has been known to baffle many a hitter. I was not disappointed in the least. Here is Dorris with one of his hapless victims from Sunday.
