Mike Trout says “I signed the contract and this is where I want to be.” Coleman Crow continues to pitch well. He’s only 21 so it will be a while before he makes it to the show. Ky Bush is one of the first eight picks to be in the Futures Game. David Fletcher took live batting practice and is expected to be back shortly after the All Star Game.

Infielder Deven Marrero got a minor league deal in the Mets system. The Diamondbacks claimed Sergio Alcantara off waivers from the Padres. White Sox third baseman Jake Burger is on the ten day injured list with a bruised hand.
