Cory Doyne Promoted To Palm Beach

Cory Doyne has been transferred to Palm Beach of the Florida State League. To fill his roster spot, RHP Jaymes Torres was transferred to the Swing of the Quad Cities from New Jersey of the New York-Penn League. The Swing roster currently stands at 25 active players, the maximum allowed by the Midwest League.

Doyne, who made his first Midwest League appearance in 2002, was off to a hot start early in the 2005 campaign. He had struck out five of the seven batters he faced, hurling a flawless 2 1/3 innings in his two appearances. The 23-year-old Florida native led the Cardinals farm system in 2004 by holding opposing hitters to a .141 batting average.

Torres, 23, was signed by the Cardinals as a non-drafted free agent out of the University of California-Berkeley. He split time in 2004 between Low-A and High-A, chalking up a 1.65 ERA in relief for New Jersey before being called up to Peoria for his last eight appearances. The righthander will be in uniform when the Swing take on Wisconsin Tuesday night.
