The Aeros announced three roster moves today, placing OF Trevor Crowe on the disabled list, activating OF Matt LaPorta from Milwaukee, and activating LHP Chuck Lofgren from the inactive list. Crowe was put on the disabled list with a strained left intercostal muscle (retroactive to July 2nd).

In Buffalo, they are going with one less pitcher in the bullpen for the next week as they await to see if former closer Rick Bauer clears waivers. Bauer was designated for assignment by the Indians Friday, and if he clears waivers he most likely will return to Buffalo and resume his closing duties.

RHP Rob Bryson, who is one of the players received in the Matt LaPorta trade, has been assigned to Lake County.

Aeros outfielder Trevor Crowe took home Eastern League Player of the Month honors Monday for his outstanding performance in June. Crowe hit .400 (42-105) in June to lead the Eastern League, and his 24 RBI tied for the most in the league with teammate Bronson Sardinha. Crowe also pounded four home runs and stole five bases.

I'm on my way to Akron.....more updates late tonight or even during the game as I watch LaPorta and maybe chime in on what he said in his press conference.
