Roster changes in West Michigan

The Tigers made a slew of minor league transactions Friday, many of which will have a direct impact on the makeup of the Connecticut Tigers roster.

Infielders Chris Sedon and Jimmy Gulliver and pitchers Jared Wesson and Zach Samuels were promoted from extended spring training to the West Michigan Whitecaps.  Going the other way were infielders Luis Palacios and Elvin Soto and pitchers Luis Angel Sanz and Melvin Mercedes.

The four newcomers to extended spring training will likely head to Connecticut when the New York-Penn League season begins.  Palacios and Sanz spent time in Oneonta last season, while Soto and Mercedes played in the Gulf Coast League in 2009.  Mercedes is a candidate to serve as Connecticut’s closer, while Sanz has the versatility to start or relieve.
