Moves and Notes

Texas
TRS has some notes up on Harden and Holland. Harden looked just ok in his first rehab outing at okc lasting less than 3 innings and throwing about 50 pitches. He is scheduled for at least 2 more starts (graduating from 70 to 90 pitch limits) with a fourth possible depending how he does. So the earliest he would be activated would be 7/26 or 7/31 if he needed an extra start.

Holland has apparently recovered from his shoulder injury but has been strengthening his knee, as he has had problems with a kneecap dislocation since ST. He will pitch a sim game on Saturday and likely make 4 rehab starts if all goes well. This schedule would put him in line to be addded to the 25 around 8/11 or so if there is a need for him at that point.

OKC
Endy Chavez to the DL with continuing knee issues. Brandon boggs activated from the DL.

Tanner Scheppers had a a rough outing for his first start without an innings/pitch limit. He threw 85 pitches(54 strikes) over 4.2/11/5/2/1/1hr, 8-4 go/ao ratio. He's likely allowed to throw up to 100 pitches now. I think he gets 5 starts before TX considers bringing him up to the pen, so say 8/9. He would be around 80 innings, about the same total that Feliz had last year before his call-up when his season inning limit was about 100 innings as well.

Hickory
Yefry Castillo promoted from Spokane. Jonathan Roof promoted from the AZL (after a long while on the DL). West and Koncel to the DL.

Spokane
According to Jason Cole (via another source), Zach Ozborne was taken to the hospital after being hit in the face by a ball.
UPDATE: If I understand correctly, Ozborne was hit in the face by a line drive to RF while he pitching a side-session. Freaky. He had surgery today and will be back in a few weeks.

AZL
Tony Doyle made his first appearance (out of the pen) after his late May suspension.

Draft
12th round JR OF Josh Richmond signed. He was rated as high as a 3rd rounder coming into the year but missed a lot of the year due to a recurring left wrist injury. Very interested to see this kid get into some games. For like the first time in 10 years, the system has a lot of outfield prospects, though they are all in the lower levels for the most part.
