We have some movement around the minor leagues for Sunday.
Catcher Chris Stewart had his rehab assignment moved from Altoona to Indianapolis. Stewart caught two games for Altoona, going 2-for-6 at the plate, with a walk. He left for a defensive replacement after the seventh inning each game.
Pitcher Matt Benedict has been moved from Altoona down to Bradenton, where he will take the place of pitcher Justin Topa, who has been placed on the 7-day disabled list. It’s possible that Benedict will get the start on Monday, which is currently listed as TBD. He pitched two scoreless innings on Friday night, needing just 22 pitches to get through the outing. Topa has not pitched this year. No word yet on why he was placed on the disabled list.
There should be a corresponding move at Altoona to replace Benedict on the roster, so check back later for any updates.
