Due to the many changes this week, here’s an open discussion thread to deal with the updates in topics since the beginning of the week. This will also avoid the long comment threads in the earlier post.
- Maikel Franco was put on the DL.
- Aaron Altherr was called up and performed well Wednesday night.
- Chase Utley was traded to the Dodgers for AAA INF/OF Darnell Sweeney and Advanced A RHP John Richy. (Nos. 13 and 29 among Dodgers’ prospects).
- Sweeney has been assigned to the Phillies in Utley’s roster spot.
- MLB inserted Sweeney as the Phillies #11 prospect.
- Everybody moved down one slot until Seve Gonzalez and Victor Arano were removed from their slots.
- Aaron Brown was inserted at #29.
- John Richy was inserted at #30.
- Former #30 Jonathan Arauz was bumped out of the top 30.
- Since the comment s can become numerous, I recently considered posting a mid-week Open Discussion. I decided to try it today with all the stuff going on this week. Let me know what you think.
