While not nearly as transactions-intensive as prior weeks, there was no shortage of noteworthy moves on the transaction wire this past week.  Here's a look back at the week that was in Tribe Transactions:



Multiple promotions including Ryan Rohlinger to Columbus, Tyler Holt to Akron, and Alex Monsalve to Carolina

Nick Hamilton signs and makes his pro debut in Arizona

Shelley Duncan is a proud papa of twin baby boys.  Congrats Shelley and Elyse!

Oh, and did I mention PRONK IS BACK!!!


Lonnie Chisenhall, Kyle Bellows, and Bryce Stowell all find their way to the DL


The Tribe minor league brass loses patience with Jake Lowery's struggles and demotes him to Lake County

Arizona's Shao-Ching Chiang not only lands on the DL, but the 60-day version (season-ending for a short-season player)


Following are all of the past week's moves (including the PRONKTIVATION!!!*) in convenient list form:
