We had a couple of roster moves ahead of the start of this week’s games.
Will Wilson got a promotion to Triple-A, while Ricardo Genovés got moved down to Double-A. The latter move was probably due to Joey Bart’s impending Sacramento return to work on his mechanics.
And, as reported in yesterday’s Prospect Round-Up, Najee Gaskins is on his way from San Jose to High-A Eugene.
One other move was outfielder Jairo Pomares getting moved from High-A Eugene to the Arizona Complex League. The reasoning for that is Eugene playing in Vancouver, Canada, where passport issues for Cuban players like Pomares generally don’t get resolved until they make the Majors. Good thing Vancouver is the only minor league team in Canada that Pomares needs to worry about this with.
AAA: Tacoma 3, Sacramento 1
- Will Wilson made his Triple-A debut, going 1-for-4 with a strikeout and a HBP, and also getting caught stealing. In 29 games at Double-A this season, Wilson hit .233/.347/.505 with four doubles and eight home runs.
- A day after coming back from the bigs, Heliot Ramos led the Cats in hitting by going 2-for-4, although he also got caught stealing, for the second time this season. Ramos is now batting 10-for-33 (.303) in June in Triple-A, with two home runs.

- Starter Nick Sinacola gave up four runs, but just two earned, on seven hits and no walks. He struck out just one, his lowest strikeout total in an appearance in the season other than striking out none in 2.0 innings in relief back on April 14th. He’s now allowed 43 hits in 41.1 innings, which is a .262 batting average allowed.
- Landen Roupp took one on the chin, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks in 3.0 innings, with two strikeouts. He still has a 2.92 ERA overall, though the two strikeouts tie for his lowest strikeout total on the year.
