Minor Moves: Mel Rojas and Chad Kuhl to the DL

Mel Rojas has been placed on the Altoona DL.

Mel Rojas has been placed on the Altoona DL.

Two injury updates to note over the last two days:

**Altoona placed Mel Rojas on the disabled list with a left oblique injury yesterday. That’s unfortunate, as Rojas has been finally performing well. Since the second week of May he was hitting for a .304/.366/.459 line in 135 at-bats. In the past Rojas would go on short hot streaks, but they would never last more than a few days, while his cold streaks lasted weeks. I spoke with one scout who said he looked better this year than he ever has in the past.

**Chad Kuhl was placed on the disabled list in Jamestown with an unspecified injury. The 2013 9th round pick made just one start for Jamestown, throwing three shutout innings. Jared Lakind has been activated from the Jamestown disabled list.
