In order for Omaha to get down to the 27 man roster limit before opening day, several moves were made but none unexpected.

First, Omaha announced that they would return Rule 5 draft pick Ernesto Vazquez (6/6/2/2/7 Talents) to Long Beach. Vazquez hasn’t played very well this spring and after the acquisition of Santana it just seemed like the writing was on the wall.

Second, Omaha announced that they would be optioning reliever Jose Gonzales to AAA. Gonzales hasn’t played much this spring, but did get rocked last week in a game. He has a fastball, slider, and changeup which are tremendous pitches but lacks movement on each of them. The 23 year old will go down to AAA to attempt to create some movement on his pitches and work on his mechanics. He has yet to pitch in the BBA. Last season in AAA he accumulated a 4.06 ERA over 57 innings, 9 of which he started.

Last but not least, Omaha sent outfielder Jerome Pichon (6/7/6/4/8 Talents, .242/.306/.408, 14 HR, 46 RBI) down to AAA. Pichon was simply the odd man out in the crowded outfield and the team expects the switch-hitter back at some point. Pichon was acquired in the trade last season with Vegas that brought Tyler Moore (6/8/8/6/6 Talents, .249/.325/.498, 30 HR, 83 RBI), Hiroyuki Rin (10/6/9 Talents, 3 - 8, 5.70 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, 43 K), & Kyle Elston (10/5/8 Talents) to the team.
