Well, this is surprising. Pete Kozma has been called up from AAA Memphis to replace Nick Punto who was put on the DL. I’ve pushed my normal Wednesday to tomorrow post for this discussion topic.
UPDATE: Makes sense for two reasons. 1 – he’s already on the 40 man roster. 2 – he’s a middle infielder like Punto. 3 – He’s the only infielder left in Memphis on the 40 man roster. 1+ 2 + 3 = callup.
Kozma has a 220/284/284 slash line so far this year. Kozma will wear number 47.
And of course, congrats to Mr. Kozma. His first major league appearance will be a huge milestone in his life.
