Casey Sadler has been activated from the Altoona DL.
Here are the minor league moves from this afternoon.
**Casey Sadler has been activated off the Altoona disabled list. Sadler had been out since June 30th, when he took a line drive off the knee. He was on the DL with a contusion. On the season he has a 3.38 ERA in 96 innings, with a 54:25 K/BB ratio. He will be starting today's game for Altoona.
**Ali Solis was promoted from Altoona to Indianapolis. He was sent down to Altoona yesterday. You have to wonder if he actually made the trip back and forth, or if the move was just a paper move....
