Today, right-handed pitcher Hector Rondon was transferred from Akron, catcher Dwight Childs was transferred from Mahoning Valley, and right-handed pitchers Jack Cassel and Kirk Saarloos were placed on the disabled list (retroactive to 7/6).

The Childs move is emergency only as regular catcher Wyatt Toregas got hit pretty hard in the mask last night with a foul ball and was a little shaken up a little from the contact. He may sit the next game or two, which means backup Damaso Espino will be thrust into starting duties and would leave no backup catcher. Once Toregas is cleared for regular action, which could even be today, Childs will be sent back to Mahoning Valley. Still, what a treat for the 18th rounder out of this year's draft to go to what is very much like a major league clubhouse and atmosphere in Columbus.
