The Bradenton Marauders have made several transactions prior to today’s game:
-Brett Lorin has been promoted from extended Spring Training, and will start in today’s game.
-Joe Beimel has been promoted from Bradenton to Indianapolis, where he will continue his rehab work.
-Eliecer Navarro and Jeffrey Inman have been transferred to Extended Spring Training.
-Fraylin Campos and Porfirio Lopez have been promoted from Extended Spring Training to Bradenton.
I wouldn’t read much in to those last two moves. Extended Spring Training is right across town, which means Campos and Lopez were probably brought in to help out the bullpen in the short term, with Navarro and Inman both unable to pitch due to multiple inning outings recently. Navarro and Inman will be back on the roster soon.
