Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier has been promoted to Triple-A Columbus.
Frazier earned the level bump by slashing .278/.357/.473 with 13 home runs, 25 doubles, 48 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 88 games with Double-A Akron. The 21-year-old was drafted fifth overall in 2013 out of a high school in Georgia and has impressed at just about every turn. He was rated a top-50 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign by both MLB.com and Baseball America. Baseball Prospectus had him ranked 53rd.
Indians outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus.
Fellow top outfield prospect Clint Frazier will join him on the move. Zimmer, 23, was slashing .252/.370/.472 with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, 31 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored through 92 games this season at the Double-A level. He needs to improve his overall plate discipline, but those counting stats are eye-popping to any fantasy baseball enthusiast. Zimmer was the 21st overall pick in 2014 out of the University of San Francisco. He should make his major league debut later this summer.
Tyler Collins (neck) slugged a pinch-hit solo homer Sunday in the Tigers' loss to the White Sox.
Collins' solo shot in the top of the ninth inning off Chicago closer David Robertson was part of a three-homer barrage that tied the game at 4-4. But the White Sox rallied in the bottom of the frame to grab the 5-4 walkoff win. Collins had been sidelined for a couple of days due to muscle spasms in his neck.
Maikel Franco (wrist) went 1-for-2 in the Phillies' loss to the Pirates on Sunday.
Franco was held out of the starting lineup Sunday with a bruised wrist, but he entered the game in the bottom of the fifth inning after Andres Blanco left with a fractured index finger. Franco should start at third base in Monday night's series opener at Marlins Park.
Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Rays' loss to the A's.
Arcia made an early exit from Saturday's game after suffering a mild right elbow strain and may have still been in some discomfort for Sunday afternoon's series finale in Oakland. Arcia, 25, is batting .226/.301/.387 with six homers and 19 RBI in 52 games this season.
