The Indianapolis Indians have placed third baseman Brent Morel on the disabled list today with plantar fasciitis. He has played 42 games for Indianapolis this year and struggled, hitting .222/.287/.340 in 153 at-bats. Morel got in one game for the Pittsburgh Pirates, striking out in his only at-bat.
It was announced last night that Mel Rojas Jr. was being promoted to Indianapolis and that move was made official today. His place on the Altoona Curve roster will be taken by outfielder Junior Sosa, who was transferred to the Jamestown roster in early April. Sosa actually made the Curve Opening Day roster, but never played and was demoted when Stetson Allie was added to the roster on April 4th.
In one other move that was on paper only, Austin Meadows was added to the West Virginia roster, but he is not active. He is still down in Bradenton, working back from a hamstring injury, as reported here yesterday.
There were also a number of moves announced here yesterday, including Chris Dickerson going on the DL, Brandon Mann being released and Ryan Beckman being added to Altoona, and eight DSL players were released.
