Minors notes

The Tigers made some organizational moves bumping Zach Simons to Toledo and Jared Gayhart to Erie. Gayhart has moved all the way up from West Michigan this season. Simons is now just one rung away from the big leagues and is already on the 40 man roster meaning there’s a good chance he could see action out of the Tigers bullpen.

Also, in preparation for trade season Lee has put together a midseason prospect ranking which I pretty much agree with. There is always a lot of subjectivity in these things, but I think Lee’s list is a good one.

    two questions:
    Why is Scram not getting any play regarding the bigs? He seems to be exactly what the Tigers are looking for (by looking at his stats). Also, why not just replace Anderson with Ramirez – at least Ramirez has upside?

    Where’s Carlos at right now? Is he heading up to Toledo?

      The notes say he was recalled from his injury rehab assignment, but nothing else.
