News Release

LANSING, Mich. - The Lansing Lugnuts, in conjunction with the Toronto Blue Jays, announced Thursday that shortstop Ryan Goins has been promoted to Dunedin (A-Advanced, Florida State League) while corner infielder Randy Schwartz has been activated from the 7-day Disabled List in a corresponding move.

The Dunedin infield slot opened up for Goins following the trade of Tyler Pastornicky to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday. The 22-year-old Texan batted .308 in 77 games with the Lugnuts this season, with a team-leading 91 base hits as well as 19 doubles, three home runs and 35 RBIs. Goins had his team-high 24-game on-base streak end on Sunday against Bowling Green.

The moves brings the Lugnuts' current roster to 25 active players and three players on the DL.
