Infielders Odubel Herrera and Hanser Alberto and pitchers Kevin Pucetas and Nick McBride were transferred from Frisco to Myrtle Beach.
Right-hander Carlos Pimentel, who has come on strong in Frisco, also was promoted to Round Rock.
In other moves, right-hander Cody Kendall was activated from the disabled list at Low-A Hickory and was promoted to Myrtle Beach; catcher Eli Whiteside was activated from the disabled list at Round Rock; and catcher Brett Teschner was transferred to Spokane.
