Taylor Kohlwey’s stay with the San Antonio Missions was a short one. Kohlwey was on the Missions’ opening day roster, but he was gone before the team played its first home game of the season.
Kohlwey was one of three Missions players to be promoted to the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas on Wednesday. El Paso was short-handed after having some of its players called to the majors by the San Diego Padres.
Listed as an outfielder on the roster, Kohlway played first base in the Missions’ season opener in Corpus Christi. He batted .240 in six games with the Missions.
El Paso is familiar territory for Kohlwey. He spent part of 2019 with the Chihuahuas, batting .304 in 11 games.
Kohlwey batted eighth and played left field and center field on Thursday night in his first game back with the Chihuahuas.
