In the wake of all the draft stuff going on, the Indians made a very noteworthy roster move in their minor league system in the past 24 hours. I actually noted these moves as soon as they happened on my Twitter page (@tlastoria), but had not listed them on the site until now.

Anyway, the Indians have promoted second baseman Cord Phelps to Triple-A Columbus and to fill his spot in Akron they have also promoted second baseman Jason Kipnis to Double-A Akron. To word on a move at High-A Kinston to fill in for Kipnis, but I have to wonder if it will be infielder Casey Frawley from Low-A Lake County who gets the promotion (this is speculation on my part).

Kipnis was selected in the 2nd round of the 2009 Draft out of Arizona State and made his professional debut last August, appearing in 29 games for short-season Class A Mahoning Valley. In 54 games with Kinston he hit .300 with 6 HR, 31 RBI and a .865 OPS.

Phelps batted .296 with 2 HR, 23 RBI, and a .743 OPS in 53 games with Akron. He is a 23-year-old Stanford product and was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 3rd round of the 2008 Draft.
