Minor Moves: Bradenton Makes a Pair of Roster Moves

The Bradenton Marauders made a pair of roster moves ahead of Saturday’s game. They have placed catcher Wyatt Hendrie on the 7-day Injured List due to a concussion. They have also activated left-handed pitcher Luis Peralta from the 7-day Injured List.

The 24-year-old Hendrie left yesterday’s game early. He has been the primary catcher for Bradenton this year, hitting .231/.354/.282 in 12 games. The 2021 seventh round pick spent the entire 2022 season with Bradenton, posting a .706 OPS over 81 games.

The Marauders currently have Geovanny Planchart and Nick Cimillo as catcher options.

The 22-year-old Peralta has yet to pitch this season. He was dealing with an injury in Spring Training, and he has been doing rehab work up to this point. He spent the 2022 season at Bradenton, where he went 0-7, 6.41, though he racked up 97 strikeouts in 60.1 innings. He was tough to hit, but he was hurt by 44 walks and nine hit batters.

The Marauders recently lost starter Braxton Ashcraft to Greensboro, so it’s possible that his spot in the rotation will be taken by Peralta.

If any other minor moves pop up today, we will add them here.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
