Hose Earns Promotion to Visalia

South Bend Silver Hawks closer T.J. Hose has been promoted to Hi-A Visalia. Outfielder Alfredo Marte has been activated from the disabled list to assume Hose's roster spot.

T.J. Hose began the season in the South Bend Silver Hawks bullpen and quickly established himself as the team's primary closer before earning this promotion to Visalia. The right-hander pitched in 27 games for the Silver Hawks, compiling a 3-2 record, coverting 11 of 12 save opportunities, and notching a team-best 1.70 ERA. In 37.0 innings, Hose allowed 24 hits, while striking out 43 and walking only 12. Hose did not allowed a run in his last 11.1 innings and was a Midwest League All-Star this season.

Justin Mace will likely assume the closer's duties in South Bend. Mace is currently second on the team in saves with four and sports a 2.25 ERA in 36 innings.

Alfredo Marte was placed on the disabled list on July 14th with a strained left shoulder, and the move was made retroactive to July 11th. After missing just over a week of action, Marte will be active for tonight's game and is in the starting lineup against the Burlington Bees. A highly-regarded outfield prospect from the Dominican Republic, Marte leads the team with 44 RBI this season. He is batting .264 with three home runs.
