Yadier Molina will get the night off Thursday.

Carson Kelly is starting at catcher and batting seventh against Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Godley. It's a routine breather for Yadi.
Jul 27 - 3:03 PM

Jedd Gyorko is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Gyorko had a tremendous first half, but he's batting just .159 with a .500 OPS since the All-Star break. Greg Garcia will start at third base and hit eighth Thursday versus Arizona right-hander Zack Godley.

Marlins prospect Trevor Richards threw seven shutout innings on Wednesday for Double-A Jacksonville.

This is a fun story. Richards went undrafted out of something called Drury University, and then pitched two years in the Frontier League before signing with the Marlins last July. All the right-hander has done since entering the system is post a 2.43 ERA and strike out 120 hitters while walking just 21. He relies on deception, and his plus change gives him a potential out pitch. He's already 24 so there isn't a high ceiling, but he has a chance to pitch in a rotation someday. That would be fun.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Melky Cabrera is drawing "a little interest."

Cabrera is owed around $5 million in the final year of a three-year, $42 million deal and his outfield defense has always been poor, but the 32-year-old switch-hitter has slashed .293/.340/.446 with 27 home runs and 142 RBI in 246 games over the last two seasons. He would make sense as a bench bat for a variety of contending clubs.
Jul 27 - 2:46 PM

Rangers prospect Chris Seise hit his first professional homer on Wednesday for short-season Arizona League Rangers.

Seise also drew a walk. The Rangers took Seise with the 29th pick of this year's draft, and the early returns have been impressive. He's hitting .320/.380/.440, and he's picked up seven extra-base hits and stolen four bags in his 23 games in Arizona. There's a long way to go, but if you're looking for an upside play who is a borderline lock to stick at shortstop, Seise is worth targeting.
Jul 27 - 2:42 PM

Rangers prospect Ronald Guzman homered on Wednesday for Triple-A Round Rock.

The homer was his 12th of the season. While Guzman is much more advanced with the hit tool than his power, there is at least average power potential in his left-handed bat, so 15-plus homer season aren't out of the question. The Rangers are in contending purgatory, so it's tough to say when Guzman will get a chance to see the field. It may not happen in 2017, but he should be the everyday player at first before the end of next year.
Jul 27 - 2:38 PM

Mets prospect Corey Oswalt gave up one run in six innings of work for Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday.

Oswalt walked just one hitter in the start, and he struck out seven. A 2012 seventh-round selection, Oswalt has four competent pitches, including a fastball that gets up to 94 mph with some sink. There's no out pitch here, however, so the upside is limited to a backend starter. There are worse things than backend starters, however, and Oswalt is advanced enough to pitch in a rotation someday, maybe by the end of 2018.
Jul 27 - 2:33 PM

Giants prospect Chris Shaw went 2-for-4 with a homer on Wednesday for Triple-A Sacramento.

The homer is Shaw's 16th of the season, and the 10th since he was promoted to the PCL. The Giants have been terrible in 2017, but they have had a few pleasant surprises on the farm, and that includes Shaw. It's very unlikely he'll be able to stay in the outfield, but with his plus power and improving approach, he could be a regular at first. Brandon Belt has that position on lock, so don't be surprised if Shaw is moved at some point before the start of the 2018 season to a team looking for help there.
