23-year old Justin Greene was promoted to the Winston-Salem Dash (A+) from the Kannapolis Intimidators (A). Greene was hitting .303/.394/.444/.838 with 66 K’s and 30 BB’s. 23-year old Tyson Corley was promoted to Winston-Salem from Kannapolis too. Corley has a 0.95 ERA (1.105 WHIP) with 38 K’s and 9 BB’s in 38.0 innings.
