From Mike VanderWood of the Dayton Dragons:
The Dayton Dragons are losing the Midwest LeagueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best hitter and one of the teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most consistent relievers. INF Paul Janish, the leagueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s leading hitter at .398 and RHP Wayne Lundgren have both been promoted to the Sarasota Reds of the Florida State League. In addition to leading the league in hitting, Janish is also second in on base percentage at .435 and is third in slugging percentage at .612. Lundgren was solid out of the Dragons bullpen, posting a 2-1 record with a 2.60 ERA and one save in 12 appearances. In 17.1 innings of work, the right hander struck out nine and walked three.
Janish being moved is no surprise, it’ll be interesting to see what happens at Sarasota when Rosales is healthy and Janish is there also. Lundgren being moved up is more of a surprise as he was demoted from Sarasota in April and hasn’t been “lights out”.
Taking the place of Janish and Lundgren on the Dragons roster are INF Yoni Lasso and RHP Damian Ursin. Lasso, who will be making his MWL debut, was signed by the Reds as a non drafted free agent in May of 2004 out of Panama. Lasso, who played for the Panamanian Team in the 2005 World Cup in the Netherlands, played for the VSL Reds in 2004 and split time between the GCL Reds and Billings Mustangs in 2005. Ursin is no stranger to the MWL and the Dragons as 2006 will mark the fourth different season he has appeared in a Dayton uniform.
Sound like place holders until after the draft or until someone in Billings does well enough undergame conditions to merit a promotion.
