Pirates promote Jordan Cooper to State College. Exicardo Cayonez demoted to the GCL Pirates.— Tim Williams (@timwilliamsP2) July 7, 2011
Cayonez, a big-bonus Latin American prospect, hit reasonably well in the Gulf Coast League last year as an 18-year-old. Now, after going 2-for-32 for State College, he's back in the GCL. He's only 19, so he has plenty of time to put it together, but this is a shame. Jordan Cooper will take his place on the Spikes roster.
