Rangers prospect Hanser Alberto smashed three hits Saturday in a win for Triple-A Round Rock.
It's Alberto's second multi-hit effort in his last three games. Alberto has always been an excellent defensive player but his bat has kept him in the minor leagues. If he can keep hitting at his current .283 clip, the Rangers should be able to find a place for him.
David Wright (hamstring) will ramp up baseball activities on Monday as he continues his recovery from a strained hamstring.
Wright will take ground balls at third base and do some light running to test out his legs. If he comes through that without issue, he could soon be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. He's on track to rejoin the Mets in early May.
Astros prospect Colin Moran went 5-for-8 Saturday with eight RBI in a doubleheader for Double-A Corpus Christi.
That RBI total represents more than half of Moran's season output. Moran has raised his average from .180 to .254 over the last three games. This marks Moran's second year in Double-A after hitting .304 in 28 games for Corpus Christi in 2014. The 22-year-old and former first-round draft pick is still looking for his first home run of the season.
Francisco Rodriguez notched his third save of the season Sunday in the Brewers' 6-3 win over the Cardinals.
Rodriguez delivered a perfect ninth inning, getting Kolten Wong to ground out and Peter Bourjos and Tony Cruz to fly out on just 10 total pitches. It was career save No. 351 for K-Rod, whose fantasy stock should rise rapidly as the Brewers work out of their early-season rut.
Bob Melvin was ejected from Sunday's game against the Astros for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott.
It's the first ejection of the season for the A's skipper. He raced out of the dugout and certainly got his money's worth before eventually getting the heave-ho from Wolcott.
