White Sox farmhand Dan Black likely heading to South Korea
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:06 pm ET) First baseman/designated hitter Dan Black, who has been tearing it up at Triple-A Charlotte, will likely not be doing the same for the parent White Sox anytime soon. He is believed to be taking his talents to South Korea, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Black boasts a fine slash line of .324/.457/.568 with 24 RBI in 34 games with Charlotte. But the 27 year old has yet to play in a big-league game.


Cubs' Maddon: It's possible Kyle Schwarber is a September callup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:54 pm ET) All Cubs prospect Kyle Schwarber has done since turning pro last season is hit the cover off the baseball in the minors. 

The No. 4 overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft posted a .344/.428/.634/1.061 slash line and 18 home runs in 72 games last year, and he has continued to rake at Double-A Tennessee in 2015. He has a .307/.436/.584/1.020 slash line and 10 home runs in 42 games.

Schwarber's smooth transition to pro baseball has Cubs manager Joe Maddon thinking the catcher/outfielder could be ready to help the major-league club this season.

“He’s a very, very mature at-bat, and he’s doing better behind the plate, too, from what I understand," Maddon said Sunday. “You ask him, he’ll tell you he can. And that’s a big part of it, too. He’s really confident.

“He’s definitely, definitely got the hitting chip. Every time I look up at the scoreboard at home, it’s like: Schwarber went 3 for 5 with a home run and three RBI. Even if it’s 1 for 5, it’s like a game-winning RBI.”

With the way Schwarber is progressing, he will likely move on to Triple-A this season. However, a September callup might not be out of the question.

"It’s possible," Maddon said. "Anything’s possible."

Report: Angels to promote OF Alfredo Marte from Triple-A
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:20 pm ET) The Angels are expected to call up outfielder Alfredo Marte from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. Marte was picked up off waivers from the Diamondbacks in October.

The 26-year-old had 18 hits in 106 at-bats for Arizona in 2014. This season in Triple-A, Marte was hitting a strong .343 with 11 doubles, four home runs and 32 RBI. 

He will likely be a part-time outfield/pinch-hit option for manager Mike Scioscia. He is expected to take the roster spot of Collin Cowgill, who is likely to go on the disabled list according to the Orange County Register

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Yankees promote top SP prospect Luis Severino to Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:23 pm ET) Yankees top pitching prospect Luis Severino has been promoted from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to Baseball America.

The 21-year-old right-hander is 2-2 with a 3.32 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in eight starts. He had 48 strikeouts in 38 innings.

Severino is 16-11 with a 2.39 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 56 career outings (54 starts). He is striking out 9.5 batters per nine innings.


Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen sore, but Saturday start still set
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:15 pm ET) Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen is dealing with some soreness, but has not been scratched from his Saturday start against visiting Tampa Bay, per MASNsports.com.

Chen has struggled in his last two outings in raising his ERA from 2.53 to 3.13. He has worked his way out of jams, but has allowed seven runs on 19 hits in his last 12 innings. His saving grace has been control - he has not walked a batter during that stretch.


Cardinals option RP Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:08 pm ET) The Cardinals optioned pitcher Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A Memphis, the team announced on Thursday. The right-hander was originally called up at the beginning of May, and pitched well for the Cardinals. 

Socolovich made seven appearances, earning a victory in the firs two. Overall, he pitched 7 2/3 innings, allowing just one earned run and five hits. He recorded eight strikeouts and just one walk. He'll likely get another shot in the big leagues before too long. 

The team has not announced a corresponding move to replace him on the 25-man roster.
