He now holds the Bees record for consecutive games homered and seeks to extend his streak against Las Vegas today. Jo Adell and Chase Silseth both get mentioned here as “Big Hype Prospects” although they admit that Adell is technically not a prospect anymore.
Phil Nevin says, “I thought Tep threw it really good. I left him in and it just unraveled.”

Carlos Correa is missing games with back tightness, although they think it will resolve itself soon. Oneil Cruz will be out for four months after his ankle surgery. Right hander Aaron Civale is on the injured list with a left oblique strain.

Adam Duvall has a fractured left wrist.
The Giants reinstated Joey Bart and designated Austin Wynns for assignment. The White Sox selected Keynan Middleton and placed Joe Kelly on the 15 day IL (groin strain).
Dallas Keuchel is still out there hanging Arizona around looking for a job.
