Casey plays great defense and has one of the better eyes in the system, he's always been a favorite of mine. When I'm in W-S in a couple weeks, I'll try to talk to him if he's still there and find out the details.
Becker is back in Winston-Salem. McNeal was just sent back to Birmingham from Charlotte. Barring injuries that cause chain reactions, you will not likely see Rogowski or anyone from W-S promoted to AA the rest of the year. Winston-Salem has gotten hot and is now in 1st place. Kannapolis and Birmingham are also in pennant races, so player movement will likely be minimal unless that changes. The Sox will give W-S every opportunity to win back-to-back titles.
The only exception would be if is a role player. Birmingham has enough walking wounded that they can add players from the DL. They activated Wyatt Allen this weekend and their roster will expand by one in the next few days.
