Cole Tucker Placed on Disabled List, Kevin Newman Joins Power Tomorrow

Last night, the news came down that first round draft pick Kevin Newman was being promoted to West Virginia from Morgantown. Today, Cole Tucker was placed on the disabled list to make room for Newman, who will be joining the team tomorrow. The Power will play today down two infielders, as Erik Forgione was sent to Morgantown to make room for reliever Edgar Santana.

We posted an update on Tucker yesterday. His absence has been due to general soreness according to both Tucker and manager Brian Esposito. Tim Williams covered West Virginia recently and saw Tucker icing his shoulder after games in which he didn’t play, but the answer was just soreness. He last played on July 28th and that was as a DH after a two-day absence.

I wonder if surgery is in the works? That’s not good for a SS.

The entire way the organization has handled this has been odd

Looks like Cole’s season is over at this point. I think he did great this year and as a result he should not have to come back to WV next year. He earned the promotion so I guess let the battle begin between him and Newman and let the best player win. I hope it is Cole.


Could see a position change to 3rd or 2nd to make room in Bradenton
