Jason Heyward is considered day-to-day with a left groin injury.
Heyward suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Brewers while chasing down a ball in the outfield. He tested things out with some jogging and looked OK, but the Cardinals decided to be cautious here. Consider the outfielder day-to-day.
Gio Gonzalez gave up six earned runs in five innings Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Marlins.
Gonzalez struck out eight and walked just one, but Miami's offense pounded him for 10 hits -- including three triples. Gio now has a rough 1-2 record, 5.01 ERA, and 1.71 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings this season and the Nationals have lost five straight games. Gonzalez will try to get on the right track next weekend against the Phillies.
Mets prospect Michael Conforto went 3-for-4 with a home run Saturday for High-A St. Lucie.
Teams are starting to pitch around Conforto (five intentional walks) and for good reason. Saturday's blast was his fifth of the season. The 22-year-old is also hitting for average with five multi-hit efforts in his last 10 outings. MLB ranks Conforto as the fifth-best prospect in New York's minor league system.
Dodgers prospect Corey Seager belted a pair of homers Saturday for Double-A Tulsa.
The 20-year-old has impressed at every level, hitting .320 across 1,082 minor league at-bats. Seager doesn't walk much (just two free passes this season), but that approach hasn't hindered his success. His .433 average this season leads all Texas League hitters. Seager doesn't have anything left to prove at Double-A and should be headed to Triple-A Oklahoma City shortly.
Jason Heyward left Sunday's game versus the Brewers with an apparent left leg injury.
Heyward tweaked something while chasing after a ball in the right-field corner. He tested things out with some jogging and looked OK, but the Cardinals decided to go ahead and pull him just to be safe. The club should have an update on his status shortly.
Astros prospect Chris Devenski tossed 6 1/3 no-hit innings Saturday for Double-A Corpus Christi.
The 24-year-old was removed after 87 pitches. Rangers prospect Jorge Alfaro broke up the no-hit bid shortly after. The Cal-State Fullerton alum hasn't allowed a run yet this season and has limited opponents to a .113 average in 57 plate appearances. Devenski's eight strikeouts Saturday were a season-high.
Brewers prospect Orlando Arcia extended his hitting streak to eight games Saturday with a 2-for-4 outing for Double-A Biloxi.
The 20-year-old went deep for his first Double-A home run on Saturday. Arcia's .458 average this season is second-best in the Southern League. Milwaukee's top prospect has recorded at least two hits in each of his last three games. If the name sounds familiar it's because Arcia's older brother Oswaldo plays outfield for the Minnesota Twins.
MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the trade of Josh Hamilton to the Rangers could be finalized as soon as Sunday afternoon.
Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan says the deal could be announced Sunday evening. The Angels are reportedly willing to eat $68 million of the $80 million remaining on Hamilton's contract in order to get something done. Hamilton will sacrifice $6 million of guaranteed money and will receive an opt-out clause in his deal after the 2016 season.
