Congrats on Your New Job
Pirates’ first baseman Josh Bell (Eyewitness Account) was promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis. The Aramis Ramirez acquisition makes it unlikely he’ll receive meaningful time in the majors this year, though a post-minor league season call-up isn’t out of the question.
The Orioles promoted Chris Lee (Eyewitness Account), acquired from Houston for international bonus slots in May, to Double-A Bowie.
Rookie Davis and Tyler Wade were promoted to Double-A Trenton by the Yankees, setting up a long-awaited meeting between Davis and Rookie the Bat Dog. New York also pushed Jorge Mateo (Ten Pack) to High-A, to the relief of Sally League catchers.
