Several Roster Moves

  • P Robbie Ross recalled from AAA
  • P Derek Holland activated from 60 day DL and recalled
  • P Nick Tepesch optioned to AAA
  • IF/OF Nick Carp designated for assignment [ Link ]

NOTES: Well, this isn’t the big “September callup”, but it kind of feels like it.  Robbie Ross was called up to cover Miles Mikolas, who was scratched.   Nick Tepesch was sent down, and Nick Carp was DFA’ed.    However, oddly enough Derek Holland was formally activated today, which is odd, as he’s not starting until Tuesday in Kansas City.  That they’d bring him up a few days ahead of time was a bit of a puzzler.   Nice to see him come back, I’m sure it’s more for his head than anything else, as it won’t make any difference in the standings.  :)
