The Promise of Youth
A few older closers are still making it work, but the promise of youth is too much to ignore, in your pens, and in your lineups.

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 in the Cubs' loss to the Yankees in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

The Cubs only collected three total hits in the game -- Junior Lake had the other one -- and they were all singles. Rizzo is batting .333/.397/.490 on the year.
Apr 16 - 3:54 PM

Jake Odorizzi was charged with three runs on five hits and three walks over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Odorizzi wasn't hit hard, as the Orioles didn't have a single extra-base hit and scored their runs on a sac fly, a groundout and an infield single. However, the righty was a little wild and required 95 pitches to cover the five frames. Odorizzi, who holds a 5.63 ERA over his first three outings, will try to bounce back next week against the Twins.

Rangers sent RHP Daniel McCutchen outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

McCutchen was designated for assignment Tuesday but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He could get another shot later this summer.
Apr 16 - 3:49 PM

Mariners recalled INF Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma.

Franklin earned the promotion after batting .395/.469/.744 with four homers and 13 RBI over his first 11 Triple-A contests this season. While he has yet to play the outfield in any professional game, Franklin played there some in spring training and the rumor is that he could see some time there while up with the big club. He'd probably have to be used some in the outfield to have much fantasy value, as there's really no room for him to play anywhere else.
Apr 16 - 3:47 PM

Mariners placed OF/1B Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a right hamstring strain.

Morrison actually suffered the injury on Monday before he took an at-bat or went to his position. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined. LoMo was off to a .150/.227/.150 start with no homers and no RBI in eight games so far this season.
Apr 16 - 3:44 PM

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Neither of Jones' hits left the infield, as he bunted for a single in the fourth and then beat out a swinging bunt in the fifth that plated a run. The outfielder had been slated to sit out Tuesday's game due to illness before it was rained out, but he wound up not having to miss a contest.
Apr 16 - 3:42 PM
Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Myers was back up in the No. 2 spot in the batting order after being moved down for a few games, but it didn't help him snap out of his funk. The reigning AL Rookie of the Year had three hits on Opening Day but is batting just .171/.244/.195 since and has yet to hit a homer.
Apr 16 - 3:38 PM

Johnny Cueto spun a gem Wednesday, striking out 12 while giving up just three base hits in a 4-0 shutout win over the Pirates.

A one-out Andrew McCutchen double in the fourth inning was the only time all day the Pirates reached second base. Cueto even contributed a rare hit at the plate. The Reds right-hander only has one win to show for it but has been magnificent so far this season, posting a 1.50 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 35/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. He'll face the Pirates again next week.
