Reds third base prospect Seth Mejias-Brean went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two walks for Double-A Pensacola on Saturday, and is now hitting .276/.415/.355 in 22 games in the Southern league.

Mejias-Brean has 17 walks and nine strikeouts in Double-A. He is not hitting for nearly as much power as he was in the California League, but that is likely a product of both better pitching and a more neutral offensive environment.

Red Sox prospect outfielder Manuel Margot went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run for Low-A Greenville on Saturday.

Margot got hot at the same time as the weather, hitting .291/.356/.481 in June, and no holds a .260/.328/.417 line for the season despite a slow start to July in which he has hit .195/.267/.415.

Skip Schumaker (concussion) is expected to be activated immediately after the All-Star break.

He probably only needed a day or two after banging into the wall while trying to make a catch Thursday, but with the All-Star break coming up it made sense to go ahead and DL him. Schumaker will receive plenty of playing time at second base while Brandon Phillips (thumb) is out. "I needed at least a day," Schumaker said. "With the All-Star break coming up, seven days is actually three, which is kind of nice. With a limited bench, it wasn't real fair for me to take a day when we only have two guys (on the bench). We didn't need (pitcher) Manny Parra coming up in a big spot to hit."

White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

He'll provide some infield depth with Alexei Ramirez (back) banged up. Sanchez, 22, was batting .291/.352/.405 with five homers, 42 RBI and 12 steals at Charlotte. He'll be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.

Orioles prospect catcher Chance Sisco went 2-for-5 with a double for Low-A Delmarva on Saturday.

Sisco is in the midst of a 13-game hitting streak, during which he has hit .404/.424/.544, raising his season line to .347/.408/.470. For the season, Sisco has 22 multi-hit games and 14 games without a hit. He is unlikely to be up before late-2017, but he is looking like a great 2nd round pick for the Orioles.
Jul 13 - 10:20 AM

Coco Crisp (neck) is expected to sit out a fourth straight game Sunday.

Crisp is dealing with neck issues again and the A's are hoping over a week off will allow him to return healthy after the All-Star break. The outfielder has been banged up often this season but is producing when on the field, batting .291/.387/.449 with seven homers, 31 RBI and 16 stolen bases over 73 games.

Mariners right-handed pitching prospect Victor Sanchez struck out nine batters over eight innings for Double-A Jackson on Saturday, scattering three hits and one walk.

Sanchez threw 67 of his 101 pitches for strikes in his best outing of the season. The 19-year old Venezuelan has elite control and a mature pitching repertoire that could push him into the major leagues by the end of 2015. At the beginning of the season, Sanchez was the youngest player in all of the three Double-A leagues by nearly one full year. He has enjoyed a solid season, holding opponents to a 3.79 ERA and a 1.235 WHIP with 7.3 K/9.

Michael Pineda (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Friday.

It's the first time he's thrown off the mound since May, though he had been playing catch for a few weeks. The Yankees are hoping to get Pineda back in the rotation in about a month, though that's obviously a loose timetable. He's been on the disabled list since late April.
