Colome sent from Hot Rods to Stone Crabs

Pitcher Alex Colome, one of Tampa Bay's top prospects, has been promoted from low-Class A Bowling Green to high-A Charlotte.

The Hot Rods also sent Wilking Rodriguez to Hudson Valley and added Shane Minks and C.J. Riefenhauser from Princeton. Riefenhauser starts tonight.

Colome was 6-6 with a 3.95 ERA in 22 starts this year. He was Tampa Bay's No. 7 prospect, according to Baseball America, before the season after compiling a 1.66 ERA in 15 starts at Hudson Valley last year.

Stacy, the Hot Rods sent Wilking Rodriguez to Hudson Valley, not the other way around. And, glad to see you back posting so much lately!

Brain cramp by me. I'll attribute it to football.

More posts lately probably to keep from getting in a gridiron haze.
