Transactions: More Houston Assignments

MAR 28th, 2012-Yet more assignments to announce.

Houston RHPs Mike Foltynewicz and Tanner Bushue, C Roberto Pena, and LHP Luis Cruz will be reporting to Class A Lexington. Good to see some of the old guys back, but hoping that they will make it up the ladder, soon. 

Transactions: Houston RHP Carlos Quevedo, Murilo Gouvea to Class A Lexington

MAR 28th, 2012-Busy day, eh?

News out of Houston Camp is that RHPs Carlos Quevedo and Murilo Gouvea are reporting to Class A Lexington, as well. Somewhat surprising that Gouvea would come back (2011 stats), but who am I to question the wisdom of the Houston brass? No one, as it turns out. 

Transactions: Houston OF Jordan Scott Assigned to Class A Lexington

MAR 28th, 2012-Sure I'm not the first to hear this, but Houston OF Jordan Scott is heading to Class A Lexington to start the 2012 season. JT had a great year in Greeneville last year (2011 stats), and more than earned his promotion. Just spoke with him about his bump to A ball, and he tells me he reports on Monday.

As a Legends fan, I'm obviously excited to see this happen. JT is a good kid, though, and that matters more than his ability to swing a bat or catch a ball. Just makes me that much happier to hear about it. 

Transactions: Houston RHP Jason Chowning to Class A Lexington

MAR 28th, 2012-Just received word that one of my favorite players is reporting to Class A Lexington to start the 2012 season.

RHP Jason Chowning will be heading our way soon to start the year, and from what I've heard from Jason his arm is feeling much better. My hopes are that he can move up the chain soon, but then I'd be happy to have him around all year with the Legends. Bottom lines being what they are, however, we're here to make the players' time in our city a little more comfortable, and we hope to do so for Chow and his teammates this year.
