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.
