Hawks Make Four Roster Moves for Thursday Night
The Boise Hawks, in conjunction with the Chicago Cubs, have announced the addition of three players to their roster prior to tonight’s 7:05 p.m. first pitch in Everett.
To make room for the trio, infielder Chesny Young has been promoted to Class-A Kane County after hitting .354 with nine RBI in 15 games.
Infielders Bryant Flete and David Bote, along with outfielder Charcer Burks will be in uniform and be available for Game 2 of the series.
Flete made his U.S. debut this season in Mesa, hitting .317 with seven RBI in 19 games in the Arizona Rookie League. The 21-year-old native of Venezuela hit .271 with 11 doubles and 23 RBI in the Venezuela Summer League in 2013, adding 17 stolen bases.
Burks, the Cubs’ ninth-round selection in the 2013 draft, was hitting .309 with a homer and 10 RBI in Mesa this summer. The Houston native hit .269 during his rookie season in the AZL, recording six stolen bases and seven RBI…was drafted out of Travis High.
Bote returns for his third stint with the Hawks – opening the season with the club by hitting .350 with a homer and three RBI. He has been with the Kane County Cougars for the past month, hitting .229 at Low-A
Flete and Bote give the Hawks six infielders on the Hawks roster and Burks is the fourth outfielder.
