Ariel Pena, who was outrighted to Colorado Springs last week accepted his assignment and will join the team, with veteran reliever Tim Dillard being transferred to Helena in a paper move. In addition, third baseman Will Middlebrooks was placed on the 7-day disabled list with the Sky Sox and outfielder Ben Guez was added to the active roster to take his place.

The team also announced the release of Dominican infielders Henry Correa and Roosevert Chal and pitcher Yomelbin Almonte as well as the retirement of catcher Milan Post.

    • It’s just a procedural move. Dillard won’t actually head to Helena. He’ll remain with Colorado Springs but just won’t be part of the active roster. If/when a roster spot opens up, he’ll be “transferred” back to Colorado Springs.

  1. I think that’s a fair assessment. He’s one of those “glue” guys who is good to have around. I don’t know what his plans are for after his career, he may have no interest in coaching, but he’s a nice guy to have around to work with the young guys while also keeping things loose over the course of a long season. We see this with a lot of the teams early in the year. Elvis Rubio was just “transferred” to Wisconsin when Stokes hit the DL, but Rubio had been with the club all season. It’s a way for them to carry 27/28 guys on a 24/25 man roster.
