MIDLAND The Midland RockHounds’ roster updates continued on Monday with outfielder Luis Barrera being placed on the injured list.

Barrera, who was named MVP of last week’s Texas League All-Star Game, has compiled 72 hits, 24 RBIs and four home runs for Midland.

Pitcher Seth Martinez was assigned to the RockHounds from Single-A Stockton.

Martinez had a 3-3 record with the Ports with an ERA of 3.35.

Infielder Taylor Motter, who was signed by Oakland as a minor league free agent, joined the team over the weekend and had a home run in Midland’s 5-4 win over Frisco Sunday.

Outfielder Luke Persico retired from the RockHounds.

Persico played in 37 games for Midland this season, batting .257 with 17 RBIs and two home runs.
