Breaking News: Jordan Parraz to Omaha?

UPDATE: Parraz was, in fact, promoted today. Also, Stephen Randolph was released.

The Royals have apparently promoted outfielder Jordan Parraz to Omaha from Northwest Arkansas, in order to fill the void left when Mitch Maier was recalled to the Majors.. Much like the Stephen Randolph thing from earlier, this hasn't been confirmed online yet, and it's 2 in the morning so I'm not going to make a phone call to confirm what I've heard.

That said, if it's true...you heard it here first.

Through 64 games in AA, Parraz's line is .358/.451/.553. He's striking out much less in AA than he did at any other level, and walking at roughly the same rate he has before.
