I normally save transactions and promotions for the DFR’s, but as a founding member of the Nico Bandwagon, I wanted to break in with a quick update: With Wallace now up to AA, it appears that the River Bandits made a corresponding move. On their roster it shows that Nico Vasquez will now be fighting crime in the mean streets of Davenport, IA. He and teammate 1B Curt Smith were called up to the Quad Cities, along with Osvaldo Morales.
Yunier Castillo and Ryde Rodriguez were moved up from the GCL team to Johnson City. Derrick Goold said Castillo is “one to watch”, as scouts and coaches were raving about him during our esteemed beat writer’s last trip to Jupiter.
