Minor matters

• Right-handed pitcher Keith Butler was promoted to Triple-A Memphis, a move made necessary with Eduardo Sanchez landing on the disabled list. Sanchez has a right forearm strain. Butler opened the season as the closer with Double-A Springfield. He converted three saves, pitched four no-hit innings, walked one and struck out nine.

• High-A Palm Beach (Fla.) outfielder James Ramsey, the No. 23 overall selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, was named the Florida State League's player of the week for the period from April 4-14. During that 10-game stretch, Ramsey had 15 hits -- seven of which went gone for extra bases. Ramsey scored 12 runs and drove in four.

• Left-hander Tyler Lyons opened his season with two wins in two starts for Triple-A Memphis. He allowed three runs over six innings in Memphis' 10-3 win Sunday. He stranded eight runners in the outing.
