TRANSACTIONS/ROSTER MOVES

Baseball America has 29 Instructional League Rosters posted. Guess which one is still missing?

RHP Rogelio Armenteros has been added to the Arizona Fall League roster. Although RHP David Paulino is still showing on the roster, I think it's likely that he will be removed from the roster since he's been called up to the Astros. Opening Day isn't until 10/11 so there is still lots of time to finalize the roster.

NEWS AND LINKS

In case you missed it ...

WTHB handed out 2016 awards to Players and Pitchers of the Year for both full season teams and short season teams last week.

Yours truly had the opportunity to ask a few fan questions of Astros SS Carlos Correa at an event hosted by Academy benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs.
And last, but certainly not least, I neglected to post this last time out and offer my congratulations to Alex Bregman for being named USA Today's Minor League Player of the Year!
