Stay current with all the roster movement and personnel decisions with the TigsTown Transaction Blog. Former Spartan Jeff Holm was placed on the 7-day disabled list in West Michigan, and will be replaced by shortstop David Gonzalez.

Placed Jeff Holm (1B/OF) on West Michigan’s 7-day disabled list (sprained left ankle)

Transferred David Gonzalez (SS) from extended spring training to West Michigan

Analysis:

At this point in time, losing Holm is a big blow to the Whitecaps offense, as he was leading the way at the plate with a 1.072 OPS. The upside is that the injury doesn’t appear to be serious and Holm should return within a couple of weeks.

Gonzalez might get some playing time on the call-up, as Jared Reaves has hit just .226 with six errors in ten games as the ‘Caps everyday shortstop thus far.

Placed Steven Moya (OF) on 7-day disabled list (arm)

Transferred Zach Kirksey (OF) from extended spring training to Lakeland

Placed Luis Marte (RHP) on 7-day disabled list (shoulder)

Transferred Jose Valverde (RHP) from extended spring training to Toledo

Analysis:

The news about Moya is very concerning, as the organization is being very quiet after had to be lifted from a game after taking a hard fall in the outfield. Zach Kirksey will take his spot, but for a player that missed much of last season with an elbow injury, concern about Moya is warranted.

Meanwhile, Marte’s shoulder issue (just a sore shoulder, for now), opens up the roster spot for Valverde, however, he won’t immediately join the Mud Hens. After a side session on Wednesday, Valverde is scheduled to throw in an extended spring training game on Friday.
