Pitching Moves May Be Imminent
So why is this potential signing noteworthy? Well, considering the lack of pitching options in High-A Kinston to promote to Akron, this seems to imply that one of the pitchers in Akron may be going up to Triple-A Columbus. Also, it is possible this may create a domino effect where someone may be going from Columbus to Cleveland (or may be released).
Considering Livingston is a starting pitcher, making 12 starts for Bowie and three starts for Tripe-A Norfolk this year, he may be slotting into the Akron rotation to allow for the calllup of RHP Hector Rondon to Columbus.
