Kyle Smith, RHP acquired from the Royals for Justin Maxwell, was promoted to Corpus Christi and made his debut this week. Kent Emanuel, LHP drafted in the 3rd round in 2013, was promoted to Lancaster and made his debut as well. Also, Carlos Correa returned to action. Here are the numbers for the week.
