The Bradenton Marauders have activated shortstop Cole Tucker from the disabled list. This comes just 22 days after he fractured his thumb, which was low end for his return estimate of 3-6 weeks. Tucker was hitting .271/.359/.420 through 51 games at the time of the injury. Between three canceled games due to weather and the FSL All-Star break, he missed just 14 games total.

The Marauders also added reliever Geoff Hartlieb to their roster today. He was promoted from West Virginia after posting an 0.83 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and a 3.00 GO/AO ratio in 20 appearances. He takes the roster spot of Jake Brentz, who was promoted to Altoona yesterday. Tucker took the spot left vacated by John Bormann, who was promoted to Indianapolis when Jacob Stallings was called up earlier this week.

Reliever Andrew Potter took the place of Hartlieb on the West Virginia roster. Potter is a hard-thrower, who was signed out of independent ball this off-season. He spent the first half of the baseball season in Extended Spring Training due to control issues. He pitched twice for Morgantown this year, hitting two batters and issuing one walk, while striking out five in three innings.

Altoona placed Dario Agrazal on the disabled list with a right pec strain. He was hurt during his debut with Altoona on Wednesday and we were told he would miss his next start. That would have been this upcoming Monday, so he could still be back in time for the following start.

Cody Dickson has been demoted from Indianapolis to fill the roster spot of Agrazal. Dickson has made five starts and 14 relief appearances, posting a 4.02 ERA, 32 strikeouts and a 1.66 WHIP in 31.1 innings. He has a .223 BAA, but 27 walks have hurt him this season.

  1. I’m very happy for Geoff Hartlieb. He’s still an incredible long shot, but it’s a step up for him. I wish him well in Bradenton.
    Yes, let’s hope they’re not rushing Cole Tucker. That’s very aggressive.

  2. That was quick for Tucker. Must have been a “greenstick” fracture but I am not a medical professional just injury prone.
