Yep, there will have to be a cascade of promotions - or position switches/platoons - to accommodate Madrigalís appearance in the organization.

Also, at least half of the Kannnapolis outfield vacancy created by Robert and Gonzalez moving to Winston-Salem will be filled by Steele Walker.

Pilkington, the 3rd round pick by the Sox, helped pitch Miss. St. into the finals of the CWS by pitching 6 innings today, allowing 2 earned runs. If they can get his velocity back up -- or higher -- to where it was last year as a sophomore, he could be a steal. (He's likely headed to Great Falls since he's already pitched more than 100 innings this year.)

Agreed. It will be interesting to see how they shuffle the deck. IMO, there are 7 guys in Kanny who have earned promotions:

Rivera
Blackman
Gonzalez
Robert (hard to "earn" it in two weeks, but he's been good and his prospect status will get him promoted)
Battenfield
Henzmen
Tyler Johnson (46 Ks in 27.0 IP!)

Since Rivera and Blackman are both MI, we'll see if either gets stuck behind Madrigal, or if they start Madrigal at Kanny.
