Brandon Snyder promoted to AAA

http://masnsports.com/2009/06/snyder-moving-up.html

 

I'm hearing strong rumblings that first baseman Brandon Snyder is being promoted from Double-A Bowie to Triple-A Norfolk.

No announcment has been made and nothing is official, but don't be shocked if we receive confirmation tomorrow.

 

The Orioles are being a LOT more aggressive about their promotions this year.  Arrieta, Matusz, and Patton were all promoted this week too.

Last year, the best prospect in baseball was destroying the Carolina League, and he wasn't promoted to AA until the END of June.  Reimold didn't get promoted at all last year, even though he was repeating AA.  Tillman never got promoted either.

Given how methodical MacPhail has been about promoting prospects, this is a pretty radical departure, and I think it has to mean something.

WIth Snyder, Arrieta, Tillman, Patton, and Hernandez at AAA, are we looking at a veteran fire sale in July and callups galore in August/September in preparation for a run next year?   Or am I getting ahead of myself?

 

UPDATE (zk): This is official per Baysox39 below and Roch. Welcome, Brandon!
