RoughRiders Roster Moves
The ‘Riders will welcome outfielder David Paisano back to Frisco today, while infielder Matt Leeds is heading back to the Arizona League.
Paisano opened the season with the RoughRiders and hit .213 with 12 runs scored five RBIs in 27 games. He was sent to High-A Myrtle Beach May 14. Paisano hit .241 with the Pelicans in 65 games.
Paisano is not in the RoughRiders’ starting lineup tonight in game three of this four-game series.
Leeds spent a little more than a week with the RoughRiders and played in three games. The College of Charleston product went 3-for-9 with two RBIs. Leeds will return to Surprise to rejoin the first-place AZL Rangers. This season in Arizona, Leeds is hitting .264 with three homers and 23 RBIs.
Unfortunately for Paisano, he will not get to take part in the “Hurricane Party” at the Pelicans’ home game tonight at BB&T Coastal Field. The team tweeted today that anyone with the name Irene gets free admission.
