The Eugene Emeralds, short-season-A ball team for the Padres, have made three roster moves in recent days.
A non-drafted free agent signing earlier this year, D’Amico was just 1-for-17 with eight strikeouts with the Emeralds, and at 23, the second baseman needed to do more than that. Wright, soon to be 23 himself, was 4-for-24. The big outfielder, a 25th-round pick last season, hit .231/.263/.333 with Eugene last year, and failed to show statistical progress this season.
Tyrell, a 22-year-old infielder/catcher out of Dayton, hit just .190/.242/.310 in the AZL, but did manage five extra-base hits in 14 games. He was the Padres’ 42nd-round selection in this year’s draft.
