Kennard Jones leaves the Storm hitting .291. He has stolen 13 bases, but has been caught nine times.

Josh Carter played in six games for the BayBears since being promoted from Elsinore. He had started the year in Mobile before being sent down. In his last six games, Carter was 2-for-16. He was batting .273 with the Storm and leaves Mobile batting .225 on the year.
