Roster Moves – August 20

PugliesePASCO, Wash. – The Boise Hawks, in conjunction with the Chicago Cubs, have announced four roster moves prior to tonight’s game with the Tri-City Dust Devils.

James Pugliese has been promoted to Class-A Kane County; pitcher Eddie Orozco has been removed from the seven-day disabled list and added to the Boise roster; catcher Cael Brockmeyer has been placed on the seven-day disabled list (retroactive to yesterday); and catcher Neftali Rosario has been sent to Boise from Class-A Kane County.

Pugliese earns his first promotion to a long-season team after posting a 4-3 record and a 2.32 ERA in 11 starts, tossing a team-high 62 innings and striking out a team-high 47 men.

Orozco joined the Hawks on July 17 on a rehab stint from Kane County, going 0-1 with a 5.59 ERA in eight appearances.  He will continue to be utilized out of the bullpen.

Brockmeyer2Brockmeyer was hitting .298 with five doubles and 13 RBI for the Hawks before he had to leave Sunday’s game after taking a foul tip off his mask.  He was placed on the disabled list as part of Minor League Baseball’s new concussion prevention program.

Rosario joins the Hawks after playing in four games at Kane County, going 2-for-9 in limited action.  The sixth-round pick of the Cubs in the 2011 draft from Puerto Rico spent last season in the Arizona Rookie League, hitting .214 with seven RBI.

The Hawks active roster now sits at 29, with one player on the disabled list.
