Found the answer to this mystery. He was pulled by the coach for failing to run out a ball to first on a pop up. Another reason minors time is well spent. I was at the game and didn't even really notice it myself (although I was there with family and somewhat distracted), but that answers it. I just knew it didn't look like he was injured, and a mid-game call-up would have been odd.
As a side-note, it was the first time I saw Almora live and he was quite a bit smaller than I expected. Still very young, but it was something that stuck out.
I also have to say like Vogelbach even more now. He seems like such a down to earth guy, always smiling, spitting, frumpy and dirty uniform, joking with the umps. He definitely has a personality that reminds you of John Kruk. I'm not entirely sure his swing can make it to the bigs, but I'm pulling for him.

Like the accountability we have at the lower levels. Thoyer & Co have brought in some good teachers.
Yes, they have. On the big club as well. The coaching staff at Kane County is mainly guys from the old regime though. Johnson was the Boise manager the 2 previous years. Beyers, the hitting coach has been in the organization for a while. Kind of surprised they kept him really.
