Roster Moves – July 12

Cubs1The Boise Hawks, in conjunction with the Chicago Cubs, have announced four roster moves prior to Game 2 of their three-game series in Eugene.

Tommy Thorpe and James Norwood, two pitchers from the 2014 draft class, will join the team from the Arizona Rookie League, while pitchers Greyfer Eregua and Alberto Diaz will join the Mesa Cubs.

Thorpe, a left-hander, returns to his home stadium tonight, as he was the Friday night starter for the Oregon Ducks.  The eighth-round pick posted an 11-4 record and a 2.14 ERA this spring, earning All Pac-12 honors in leading U of O to the NCAA Regionals.

Norwood, a hard-throwing right-hander, was selected by the Cubs in the seventh round out of Saint Louis University.  An All Atlantic-10 selection, Norwood was 8-2 with a 2.68 ERA this spring and has a fastball that can touch 98 miles per hour.

Eregua, from San Carlos, Venezuela, was 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in seven appearances this season and current leads the Northwest League with four home runs allowed.

Diaz, from Caracas, Venezuela, was 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA in seven appearances in Boise.
