The transaction nuttiness continues as the Big Club's inability to stay healthy continues to result in a domino effect of upheaval throughout the organization, especially at Class AA Akron and above.

The week saw Lou Marson get off the 15-day DL and promptly reenter the list only four days later.  The beginning of the week saw Cord Phelps demoted to AAA Columbus, where he isn't hitting either, and the return of Scott Kazmir from the 15-day DL.  Fernando Nieve was called up to Cleveland and then sent back to Columbus in both the fastest and most convuluted way possible.

In other transaction news, more players than I care to mention here went on various DLs throughout the organization, Zach MacPhee, Bo Greenwell, and Ryan Battaglia made their real game debuts, and Delvi Cid reached the end of the line with the Tribe org.  On a closing sarcastic note, the Mahoning Valley Scrappers' paper roster may soon have enough players on it to actually play a game.  All of this (and more) in convenient, albeit lengthy, list form below:
