June 13: RHP Travis Lakins Sr. optioned to Norfolk
Lakins allowed two runs in one-third of an inning in Sunday’s 7-1 loss at Tampa Bay. His departure cleared roster space for Monday’s starter, Dean Kremer.

Sidelined since May 24 with a strained left hamstring, Hays has been limited to 32 games this season due to hamstring injuries. He’s hitting .252 with five homers and a .774 OPS (113 OPS+) in those contests.
June 11: RHP Shawn Armstrong clears waivers, optioned to Norfolk
