6/29 Minor matters part I

Pitchers Chris Archer and Aaron Shafer were promoted from Class A Daytona to Double-A Tennessee. Archer was 7-1 with a 2.86 ERA with Daytona while Shafer was 2-1 with a 0.96 ERA in 24 appearances. Alberto Cabrera and Alex Maestri were sent from the Smokies to Daytona.

* Also, nine members of the Smokies were named Tuesday to the Southern League All-Star Game.  Position players Tony Campana, Robinson Chirinos, Steve Clevenger, Blake Lalli and Ty Wright will join teammates Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Ryan Buchter, David Cales and Hung-Wen Chen on the North Division roster at Joe Davis Stadium in Huntsville, Ala. for the July 12 game.

Players were selected by a vote of Southern League field managers, radio broadcasters, general managers and print media.
