Notes from Down on the Farm…
- Jason Cromer, the Bulls fifth starter, who has thrown 10 shutout innings in 2 starts, has been demoted to double-A. James Houser, a lefty on the 40-man roster, is ready to make his 2009 debut and will be assigned to triple-A. You can see updated rosters in the sidebar with the Cork-Board. [Montgomery Advertiser]
