Move coming?

The Biscuits scratched Mike Prochaska from Friday's start and turned to Tony Peguero. Manager Charlie Montoyo said it was because there is the possibility of a move involving Class AAA Durham.

Prochaska said he was supposed to throw out of the bullpen Friday night, but (as of the eighth inning) he hasn't.

I don't know yet, but could Prochaska be on deck to start Saturday and Jeff Niemann is getting promoted?? Maybe Andy Sonnanstine is moving up and Prochaska starts Sunday??

Mike is going to Durham (AAA) to pitch on Sunday, but expects to be back to help the Biscuits out for their playoff games.

You beat me to it. The Rays put Scott Kazmir on the disabled list and called up J.P. Howell from Durham, opening the spot for Prochaska.

Biscuits add right-hander Brian Allen from Visalia. He jumps from one pennant race into another.

Allen was 5-5 with two saves and a 5.17 ERA in 38 games with the Oaks.
