Zach Neto is now up with the big club and David Fletcher was optioned in a corresponding move. On Saturday, Mike Trout hit his 300th career double. Andrew Wantz is back up from Salt Lake City. Ryan Tepera left Saturday’s game with an apparent shoulder injury.
Aaarh! The Pirates just placed Ji-Man Choi on the injured list with a strained left achilles tendon. The Giants place the mighty Joc Pederson on the injured list with right wrist inflammation. Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff went on the injured list due to right shoulder issues. The doctors are still figuring out what they want to do about it. It’s apparently a grade 2 subscapular strain. The Reds placed right-hander Connor Overton on the injured list with a right elbow strain. Giancarlo Stanton went on the injured list with a hamstring strain.
All is not necessarily good in Rays land. Jeffrey Springs will miss multiple months with an arm injury. Umpire Larry Vanover is back out of the hospital where he was staying after being hit in the head by an errant Andres Jimenez throw. Here is a list of those players who are recently back from the injured list.
The Giants and Logan Webb agreed to a five year $90 Million extension. Giants catcher Austin Wynn elected minor league free agency after he cleared waivers. I guess that’s actually more of an anti-transaction. The Mariners designated Tommy Milone for assignment. The Mets Designated Dennis Santana for assignment.
