Pitcher Chris Flinn has been promoted to Durham, marking the second Biscuit in three days to move up to Class AAA. The AP lists Flinn and Matthew Maniscalco's promotions in their daily transaction list.
Flinn hasn't pitched since June 27 and has been on Montgomery's inactive list. I'm not sure why he went up, unless someone at Durham got hurt or was headed to the majors, or maybe Flinn will be on the inactive list there. He was 1-6 with a 5.49 ERA this year with the Biscuits.
Flinn is a sixth-year pro who was a third-round pick in the 2001 draft. This will be his first experience at Class AAA.
To adjust for Evan Longoria's arrival, the Biscuits have put outfielder Francisco Leandro on the inactive list.
