Mitchell Released, Payton Returns to Thunder

The New York Yankees have made a pair of roster moves affecting the Thunder roster.

  • ADD: OF Mark Payton – Reinstated from Tampa 7-day DL, transferred from High-A Tampa
  • DELETE: OF Jared Mitchell – Released from contract

Payton returns to the Thunder after batting .309 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 24 games with the Tampa Yankees. A season ago, Payton batted .250 with five home runs and 34 RBI in 72 games with the Thunder.
Mitchell completes his tenure with the Thunder after hitting a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the 11th inning of last night’s 3-2 win over Richmond. Mitchell reached base safely in each of his final 15 games for the Thunder and batted .250.


The moves leave the Thunder with 25 active players on the roster, which is the Eastern League maximum.


Your Thunder play game two of their series with the Richmond Flying Squirrels today at 10:30pm. RHP Cale Coshow will take the ball for the Thunder, LHP Adalberto Mejia will go for Richmond. Pre-game coverage begins at 10:10 on 91.3 WTSR and online at Trentonthunder.com.
