Cox to AAA, Melancon to AA

Reinforcements are on the way with the news that former Texas closer and 2005 draft pick JB Cox has gotten the bump up to Scranton, and former Arizona State closer and 2006 draft pick Mark Melancon has been pulled up to AA Trenton.

Both college closers are making their way back from TJ surgery. Cox has a 1.98 ERA in 12 innings spread over A, AA, and AAA, Melancon has a 2.84 ERA over 25 innings of high A ball.

More signs that preparations are being made for the shift of Chamberlain to the rotation.
