    Tuesday 08/23/11 MiLB Updates

    The Reds have promoted Mudcats catcher James Skelton to Triple-A Louisville. Skelton was batting .236 in 49 games for the Mudcats this season with two home runs and 16 RBIs. This is Skelton's first trip to AAA.

    Kevin Coddington is back up from Bakersfield to Carolina.

    Why is there a catcher shortage in AAA?

    In the minor leagues, the rosters are managed in quite a different manner than the standard 25-man rosters in the majors. Minor league teams keep two separate lists of players. The first is the Active List which, like in the NFL, denotes which players are eligible for the current game while the second list, the Reserve List, is the entire roster of the team.

    AAA and AA clubs are allowed to put 24 players on the Active List for the first 30 days of the season, 23 players on the Active List from the 31st day until August 10th and then 24 players again for the rest of the season, including the playoffs. The Reserve List limit, however, is always 38 players for AAA and 37 players for AA teams.

    For A teams, the Active List limit is 25 players, for Short-Season A teams, 30 and for Rookie Teams, 35. All levels below AA allow clubs a Reserve Limit of 35 players. Below A-ball, only 25 players may actually get into a single game.

    Players may be loaned to other minor league organizations, but must be returned by September 30.

    As in the majors, there are two disabled lists. The normal disabled list only has a 7-day minimum as opposed to the 15 days used as the limit for the majors. The 60-day DL, or Emergency Disabled List, works the same as in the majors; the player doesn't count against any roster limits but cannot be reinstated until either 60 days have passed or the season ends.
    So it seems as if the roster size increases after August 10th. The Bats, with the addition of Skelton, are now at 24. No corresponding moves need to be made. It could be something as simple as the 35-year old Miller being worn down a bit here in the dog days of August.

    Saw somewhere that Corky sprained his thumb, I think, but can't find it now.

    The AZL Reds, scratching for a wildcard spot, scored 5 in the first. It's 5-1 after three.

    It's 12-1 in the fifth behind Joel Bender. Carlos Sanchez, warming up a bit, is 2-3, 4 RBIs.

    Brandon Dailey has a .410 OBP.

    Matt Lentz, the UK football player and tryout-camp graduate, produced a double and triple today as the AZL Reds won 14-6.

    Glad to see him start hitting. He started out something like 0-12
