Hot Stove, Ex Biscuits on the Move




SHAFFER & MOTTER DEALT
Shaffer
Some former Biscuits were on the move last week as the hot stove heats up. Richie Shaffer and Taylor Motter were packed off to Seattle and clearing room on the 40 man roster for new additions.

In return the Rays acquired 1B Dalton Kelly and RHPs Dylan Thompson and Andrew Kittredge. 


40 MAN PROTECTED
Some of the guys added to the 40 man roster are former Skitz stars, Willie Adames, Chih-Wei Hu, Austin Pruitt, Ryne Stanek, Jamie Schultz, Daniel Robertson and Hunter Wood. Those players are now protected from the Rule 5 draft.



GOOD FOR SKITZ
Motter
For Biscuits fans, its great news, as neither Motter or Shaffer are likely to be back in Montgomery and the prospects received might. For the Rays, it opens the door for promotions within the organization.


Also in last weeks transactions, former Biscuit Armando Araiza signed with the Braves and popular infielder Juniel Querecuto agreed to a deal with the San Francisco Giants.


HAT CONTEST REVEAL
The winner of the hat contest will be revealed today, everyone has been on the edge of their seat waiting to see which design will be chosen!
