McTaggart's minor-league updates

Brian McTaggart posted his minor-league notebook, where we find that:

-Delino DeShields will be 20 years old tomorrow.
-Bobby Borchering (acquired in the Chris Johnson trade) was moved by Arizona from 3B to OF. Now the Astros are moving him back. Oh yes, and he hurt his ankle.
-George Springer was hit in the head by a stray pitch last Friday, and hasn't played since, with the Astros making sure he doesn't have a concussion.
-Fernando Abad is being moved - once again - back to the rotation. By my count, this is the fourth time his role has changed in the last two seasons.
-Jarred Cosart has been sent to Kissimmee with a continuation of his blister issues, but could return to OKC before the end of the season. Due to this, it's hard to see him as a September call-up...
