Phegley and Shelton Return to Dash
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (JULY 29, 2010) - Today the Winston-Salem Dash announced several roster moves. C Josh Phegley has been activated off the disabled list and IF Kyle Shelton has been re-assigned to Winston-Salem from AAA Charlotte. In a pair of corresponding moves, C Adam Ricks has been placed on the disabled list and LHP Matt Wickswat has been re-assigned to low-A Kannapolis.
Phegley had been on the D.L. since July 7 with a medical condition. The former supplemental first round draft pick has sat out all but 11 games this season, hitting .238 with two doubles, two RBI, and six runs scored. He was originally placed on the D.L. one week into the season until he was activated in late-June. After playing five games, he was put back on the disabled list.
Shelton spent less than a week on the Knights roster and did not appear in any games. He has played 51 games for the Dash this season, hitting .270 with two home runs and 20 runs batted in.
Ricks was assigned to Winston-Salem from Charlotte on July 7 and has played one game for the Dash this season. He went 1 for 3 with two RBI on July 11 against Lynchburg.
Wickswat returns to the Intimidators after he received a promotion to Winston-Salem on Saturday. The left-handed reliever pitched in two games for the Dash, allowing six runs (four earned) on seven hits in two innings.
The Dash's roster remains at the Carolina League limit of 25 players.
Winston begins a three-game road trip in Myrtle Beach tonight at 7:05.
