The Carolina Mudcats' ace pitcher finally got his promotion.

Southpaw Travis Wood has been promoted to Triple-A Louisville, and scheduled to make his International League debut at Syracuse tonight at 7.

Wood is currently leading the Southern League in ERA (1.21) and strikeouts (103), and is on a nine-game winning streak. The win streak is the longest in Mudcats history, while the ERA is by far the best for any Mudcats pitcher throwing over 90 innings. Ryan Tucker had a 1.58 ERA last season.

Southpaw Lee Tabor has been reinstated from the temporary inactive list and is scheduled to start Monday's series opener against Chattanooga at Five County Stadium.

Catcher Chris Denove has also been actvated, with catcher Korey Feiner going onto the disabled list.

Also, infielder Jose Castro has been placed on the seven-day DL after straining his right calf muscle on Friday night at Huntsville.
