9/9 Smokies roster moves
Pitchers Chris Carpenter and Luke Sommer, catcher Robinson Chirinos, and infielder DJ Le Mahieu were added to the Double-A Tennessee roster Thursday in time for the start of the playoff opener against West Tenn.
LeMahieu has spent the entire season at Class A Daytona, batting .314 with two home runs and 73 RBIs. Carpenter and Chirinos played for both Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa this year. Sommer began the year in Daytona, then moved up to Tennessee and before being bumped up again to Iowa.
