Any news on why Buchholz left the game?

Soto has been on a tear in May.

No... but he was thrown out at home and then left the game after that. Wonder if there was a collision at the plate or if he pulled up lame?

When did Federico Baez join the Bats roster? I hadn't heard.

Yonder needs to have a spot in AA.

Carolina's now getting warm enough for Yonder. My theory all along has been he started in Sarasota more because of weather than any other reason. He's obviously ready for AA, AAA, and probably Cinti.

Yonder is a guy who should be fast tracked to the majors. With his success in Single A they need to move him up to Double A soon.

Nice to see Stewart moving up. I really do think they are starting to see him as a starting prospect.

Carolina's up 2-0 bottom 2nd. 2 run homer for Henry.

May have missed this posted elsewhere, but I was looking over the rosters and there appear to be some other moves as well as those posted in this thread.

To summarize the moves for those keeping score at home:

Mallett and Baez to Louisville to replace Ramirez and Thompson.

DeJesus to Sarasota. This leaves three openings in Carolina.

Carolina openings filled by Stewart, Ondrusek, and Kyle Aselton

Sarasota openings filled by Bohana and Justin Walker

Heisey is 2-for-4 with a double. Nice to see him bounce back after struggling in the past four games.

nice start for Smit. With Buck on DL and Mallett in AAA, I'm guessing he gets some more starts even with Stewart now on the roster.

And Louisville will have another empty spot with Homer's callup.

The rotation was:
Maloney
LeCure
Bailey
Thompson
Ramirez

Maloney and LeCure should get the next two starts. Pettyjohn appears to have taken Ramirez's slot. Mallet and Jukich should fall in between.

Seems hard to understand why we'd spend any starts on Pettyjohn. I wonder if we've got enough at AA to push up James Avery. I'd like to see him challenged a bit, at least for a couple AAA starts. They can always move Mallett back if necessary.

In order I'd like to see them move to AAA for a few starts.

1. Wood
2. Jordan Smith
3. Avery

I'd have no complaints about that order.

For those wondering, Kyle Aselton was a Twins draft pick who was released and signed by the White Sox back in April. However, he didn't stay long and signed with the Reds very recently.
