Hounds Pitcher, Drew Granier Called Up

The ripple effect from the MLB trade involving the Chicago Cubs and Oakland A's continued Sunday as the Midland Rockhounds said good bye to another member of their clubhouse. Starting pitcher Drew Granier was scheduled to start against the Arkansas Travelers, but with the Athletic's AAA affiliate Sacramento's Dan Straily being shipped to Chicago in the trade, Granier's services were needed out west. In 2014 with Midland, Granier was 4-4 with a 3.31 ERA and 53 strikeouts.
