BREAKING NEWS: Gervacio to DL, Lopez to Houston

Sammy Gervacio is headed the the disabled list with his strained rotator cuff and Wilton Lopez will be promoted to the big league club, according to Round Rock manager Mark Bombard. Brian McTaggart had me Tweet-beat with this story, but since I heard it directly from someone with the organization, I wanted to act like a real newsman. See what happens when I got to a game officially? I get the BIg Head...

Gervacio appeared to hurt his shoulder on a play where he fielded a ball on the infield and awkwardly threw to third, trying to get the lead runner. According to Astros manager Brad Mills, Gervacio hurt his arm on the pitch before the play at third and the play wasn't the cause.

Lopez pitched one inning against Corpus Christi, giving up a two-run double to Koby Clemens in the sixth. Lopez was pulled from the game at that point and Round Rock was forced to stretch Evan Englebrook out an extra inning and then bring Corpus Christi reliever Erick Abreu in to pitch for the Express in the ninth inning. Both of the runs Lopez gave up were unearned after Brian Bogusevic dropped a fly ball in right field.

Round Rock will add Jared Wells from the Hooks to take Lopez' spot.

What do you think? This move appears to have been made because Lopez is on the 40-man roster and Casey Daigle is not. Is Lopez the guy you wanted coming up at the first injury? Do you think Gervacio will be back soon?
