Boise Hawks Roster Moves – June 30
Cubs’ fourth-round pick, pitcher Tyler Skulina, and outfielder, Jose Dore, will join the Cougars this evening, while two former Hawks, pitcher Juan Paniagua and outfielder Kevin Encarnacion, return to Boise.
Skulina made eight appearances for the Hawks, recording a 1.20 ERA in 15 innings of work – including three shutout innings in his start last night. Dore, who was traded to the Cubs from the San Diego Padres during Spring Training, played in 29 games in Boise, hitting .200 with two homers and nine RBI.
Paniagua, who tossed a scoreless inning with the Hawks during the 2012 postseason run, has a combined 0-2 record with a 2.74 ERA in 23 innings between the Dominican Summer League, the Arizona League, and Midwest League. The right-hander has one of the liveliest fastballs in the Cubs’ farm system.
Encarnacion opened the season in Boise, hitting .298 in 13 games, while hitting .217 with a homer and three RBI in 16 games at Kane County.
The Hawks roster currently stands at 30 players, with one player on the disabled list and another on a minor league rehab assignment.
