Roster Movements

by Dave B. in

As always, at this time of the season there are too many roster movements to even attempt to report them.   I will pass along a few transactions though, just because of the significance of them.   Casey Haerther (UCLA) will not be coming to Chatham this summer.   He will likely be having knee surgery soon.   Haerther's absence may leave a large void in the middle of the A's lineup.   Another UCLA Bruin, pitcher Gavin Brooks was scheduled to return to Chatham for his second season on the Cape, but he was dropped from the A's roster a couple weeks ago.   Also, Jeremy Synan (N.C. State) has signed with the Florida Marlins.   Synan batted .388 in 18 games for the A's in 2007. Mike Bianucci is a recent addition to the Cotuit roster.   Bianucci played for Y-D in 2006 and he was with the Kettleers last year.

In looking at the box scores, or checking the "team stats" page, there are many players currently on the Cape who do not show up on the roster that is posted on their team's website.
