Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Thursday that he does not have a designated closer at this point.

Pedro Strop had an opportunity to grab the job, but he was lit up for four runs in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday as the Cubs fell in brutal fashion to the Diamondbacks. "It's organic," Renteria said. Justin Grimm, James Russell, Hector Rondon, Jose Veras, and Strop could all see save opportunities going forward.

Braves infield prospect Jose Peraza went 2-for-4 with a triple on Wednesday for High-A Lynchburg.

Peraza was a shortstop until the Braves gave a long extension to Andrelton Simmons in the spring, and Peraza has played primarily as a second baseman in 2014. He is behind both Dan Uggla and Tommy La Stella on the depth chart, but he is a much better defender than both and projects to be a .300 hitter with gap power.

Tigers left-handed pitching prospect Robbie Ray continues to dominate Triple-A hitters as he posted 8 1/3 shutout innings on Wednesday, striking out seven while allowing four hits (all singles) and one walk.

Ray has a sparkling 1.93 ERA and 1.071 WHIP for the season, and hitters are managing a weak .235/.278/.294 line off him for the season. He is only averaging 6.2 K/9 from the season, down from his 9.0 K/9 career average. There are no openings in the starting rotation in Detroit, but he will likely be the first one called up if they need a spot start.

Twins right-handed pitching prospect Alex Meyer struck out 11 while throwing 6 2/3 shutout innings on Wednesday, while allowing three hits (all singles) and three walks.

Meyer has a 3.48 ERA on the season, which, coupled with his 10.5 K/9 and 1.210 WHIP, make him a likely candidate for promotion to Minnesota. Kyle Gibson is the only Twins pitcher with an ERA below 5, and the team's ERA is 4.86. It is not apparent what Meyer needs to do to get called up, but he should be up by the middle of the season at the latest.

A.J. Pollock (neck) is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup again on Thursday versus the Cubs.

Pollock was able to serve as a pinch-runner on Wednesday, but he still doesn't feel well enough to start. He wound up riding the pine for the Diamondbacks' entire four-game series at Chicago's Wrigley Field.
