Pirates optioned 1B Matt Hague to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hague was hitless in two at-bats during his brief time with the big club. He's clearing room for the return of Francisco Liriano (oblique).

Royals pitching prospect Kyle Zimmer (lat) will resume throwing on Monday.

Zimmer has missed all season with a strained lat and hasn't thrown since having a setback in May. The hope is that the top prospect will be ready for one-inning outings late in the minor league season. He'll also no doubt pitch in the Arizona Fall League and/or winter ball.

Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier went 2-for-5 with a triple and a home run for Low-A Lake County on Saturday.

Frazier has gone 7-for-10 with a triple and three home runs in his last two games, raising his season line from .253/.326/.389 to .268/.337/.435. He also struck out twice, and is second in the Midwest League with 97 strikeouts on the season.

Salvador Perez is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

It's a little surprising given that they're facing the Tigers and have the All-Star break coming, but manager Ned Yost obviously felt that his catcher needed a day. Brett Hayes is behind the plate Sunday in Perez's place.
Jul 13 - 10:48 AM

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.
Jul 13 - 10:43 AM

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."
Jul 13 - 10:30 AM

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.
