Yankees OF prospect Kendall Coleman jolted a pair of home runs Monday in a win for Low-A Charleston.
He drove in a career-high five runs as the RiverDogs cruised to a 7-2 victory over Delmarva. Coleman didn't have as much luck in the first game of Monday's doubleheader, going 0-for-3 in a 5-0 loss. The 20-year-old hadn't homered before Monday and is still hitting just .242 with 19 strikeouts in 62 at-bats. Coleman offers an interesting skill set but he has a long way to go.
Jean Segura is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a hip issue.
It's not considered serious and Segura is hoping to return Wednesday. Phil Gosselin is at second base and Nick Ahmed is at shortstop Tuesday versus the Marlins.
Erik Johnson will join the White Sox starting rotation Thursday and face the Red Sox.
He's replacing veteran starter John Danks, who was pushed off the 40-man roster on Tuesday afternoon. Johnson owns an ugly 4.17 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 6.9 K/9 in 86 1/3 career major league innings.
White Sox designated LHP John Danks for assignment.
Danks allowed six earned runs over five innings against the Orioles last Thursday, watching his season ERA rise to 7.25. He's in the final year of five-year, $65 million deal and will likely pass through waivers unclaimed because of the sum he's still owed. Erik Johnson will take over the vacant spot in Chicago's starting rotation.
Giants RHP prospect Michael Santos held visiting Greensboro to one hit Monday in a win for Low-A Augusta.
He notched five strikeouts over five scoreless innings as Augusta captured a rain-shortened 2-0 victory. Santos opened the game by retiring the first eight batters he faced. He didn't allow another base runner after giving up a single to Zach Sullivan in the third inning. Despite a couple rough outings, the 20-year-old boasts an impressive 23 to 2 K/BB as well as a respectable 1.05 WHIP. He's been in the Giants' farm system since 2013.
An MRI taken Tuesday on Jon Moscot's right shoulder revealed no structural damage.
He was given a cortisone injection and will be unavailable for the next few days, but this doesn't sound like any sort of long-term issue. Moscot had to be scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Giants after complaining of mild shoulder discomfort. John Lamb is going to fill in.
Pablo Sandoval underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
Just as many national media members had been reporting. Sandoval appeared in only three games this season for the Red Sox after showing up to camp out of shape and losing his starting third base job to Travis Shaw. He is still owed $58 million guaranteed.
Cubs LHP prospect Carson Sands racked up four strikeouts over six shutout frames Monday in a win for Low-A South Bend.
Sands held Wisconsin to four hits and three walks in his longest outing of the season. The 21-year-old has been far from dominant this year, registering a mediocre 4.43 ERA in four starts. He's also walked 10 hitters in 20 1/3 innings with only 11 strikeouts. On the bright side, Sands remains undefeated while six of the 10 runs he's allowed this year came in one start. Sands is a work in progress but he's going to get better.
