Cubs prospect RHP Pierce Johnson allowed two runs on five hits in six innings Tuesday for Double-A Tennessee, striking out eight batters.

Though he also walked three batters in the outing, Johnson has now struck out eight in back-to-back starts. The 22-year-old has been rolling since coming off the disabled list earlier this month, as he’s registered a 1.87 ERA and 35-16 strikeout-to-walk ratio over his last six starts. However, even though the right-hander’s 2.90 ERA and 65 strikeouts in 71 1/3 innings looks good on paper, it’s hard to overlook the fact he’s also walked 43 batters during that span. Johnson has the potential to be a solid back-end starter in the major leagues, but he’ll need to improve both his control and command before getting a crack at the highest level.

Chad Jennings of the LoHud Yankees Blog was told that the Yankees' interest in Ian Kennedy was "medium."

Chris Cotillo of reported last week that the Yankees were "not being aggressive" in their pursuit of Kennedy. There's also been a feeling that the Padres might prefer to hang on to Kennedy, who is under team control next season. Kennedy is currently out with an oblique injury but is expected to rejoin the rotation on Saturday.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets don't expect to trade Bartolo Colon prior to Thursday's deadline.

Puma says the Mets aren't willing to eat any of the $13 million owed to Colon, which conflicts with what Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reported last week (he said they'd be willing to eat $2 million). CBS Sports' Jon Heyman noted Tuesday that there "doesn't appear to be a great market" for Colon. The Royals, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Pirates and Braves have been connected to the righty.

Pedro Alvarez is not in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday for the second straight game.

Alvarez is over his left knee ailment, but the struggling third baseman has now been benched two days in a row versus a righty. The 27-year-old is batting just .224/.308/.362 this month and has had major issues with his throwing. Josh Harrison is at the hot corner Wednesday.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin has ruled Coco Crisp (neck) out through Friday.

Crisp will receive treatment on his ailing neck when the A's return home Friday and will not play that night. It's totally up in the air at this point as to when he'll rejoin the lineup, but Oakland is optimistic that he'll avoid a stint on the disabled list.
