News has filtered in from Tepid and Scott Lucas that some Rangers minor leaguers have been promoted.

2012 first round pick, Lewis Brinson has been promoted to Myrtle Beach after posting a .335 / .405 / .579 line in 186 plate appearances this year while repeating at low-A Hickory.  Of particular note is Brinson's reduction in strikeout rate from 38% in 2013 to 24.7% this season.  Lewis missed a few weeks in June with a quad injury but in the ten games since he returned he's hit .436 / .500 / 1.026 with two doubles and seven home runs.

Both Hanser and outfielder Chris Grayson were promoted to Frisco last year but both started this year at Myrtle Beach.  Alberto particularly struggled at AA last year, but has had a solid start at Myrtle Beach hitting .274 / .304 / .413, his third year spending time in the Carolina League.
