Torreyes to Corpus

Newly-acquired 2B Ronald Torreyes has been assigned to Corpus while Sergio Escalona has been placed on the DL.

As @SteveInLC pointed out, this means Delino DeShields isn't coming up to Corpus (at least for now). I, for one, would have preferred to see DeShields up with the Hooks and Torreyes to Lancaster. DeShields, about two weeks older than Torreyes, is hitting .289/.388/.402 for Lancaster, while Torreyes was hitting .260/.337/.381 for the Cubs' Double-A affiliate. Curious, to say the least.
