The Anglers activated Nunez on Friday, and the switch-hitting infielder made his first start the same day. The Padres selected Nunez in the 29th round of the 2019 MLB Draft.

Chatham released Nankil on Thursday. In addition to playing plus defense in the outfield, Nankil hit .269 ' which would currently be third-best on the team ' over 26 at-bats.

After primarily serving as a closer with NC State, Villaman made four appearances and three starts with the Anglers before departing to prepare for the MLB Draft. Villaman recorded a 2.93 ERA in 15.1 innings with Chatham.
