Cubs prospect Javier Baez expected to be promoted soon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Joe Maddon has declared that Cubs premier infield prospect Javier Baez is expected to be promoted at early at Tuesday.

"I would say he would be (here) sooner rather than later," Maddon told ESPN. "There's a lot of things he can do to help you win now."

Like, for instance, hit like he has at Triple-A Iowa. Baez is hitting .316 with 13 home runs and .380 on-base percentage at that level.


Dodgers bring up 2B Jose Peraza


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2015) The Dodgers have promoted infielder Jose Peraza from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take the place on the roster of shelved outfelder Yasiel Puig.

Peraza spent just two weeks in the minors after a short stint with the Dodgers in which he managed one hit in six at-bats. He has hit .289 with 33 stolen bases in the minors this season.


Mets' Daniel Murphy stays hot, plates go-ahead runs in victory


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/28/2015) Mets first baseman Daniel Murphy came through with the biggest hit of the night on Thursday. Murphy, who went 3 for 6 with a run scored and two RBI, snapped a 5-5 tie by smoking a two-run double in the 13th inning. The Mets would go on to beat the Phillies 9-5.

Murphy also made a dazzling play in the field, as he led the charge to the four-game sweep over the Phillies. He has somewhat quietly been on a bit of a tear lately, hitting .366 (15 for 41) with two home runs and 13 RBI over his last nine games.


Mets' Kelly Johnson belts game-tying home run on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/28/2015) Mets second baseman Kelly Johnson had one hit in six at-bats on Thursday against the Phillies, but it was a key hit. Johnson launched a game-tying, solo home run in the fifth inning, knotting the score up at 5-5. The Mets would go on to win the game 9-5 in 13 innings.

The home run was Johnson's third since coming over in a trade at the end of July. He has been mired in a bit of a slump recently, as he was 6 for his last 24 coming into play on Thursday.


Giants rookie Kelby Tomlinson goes grand for first MLB home run


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/27/2015) Giants infielder Kelby Tomlinson unloaded the bases with one swing of the bat on Thursday. The rookie Tomlison launched his first-career home run for a grand slam, as the Giants beat the Cubs 9-1.

Tomlinson, who was a 12th-round draft pick by the Giants in 2011, has been productive since his callup after Joe Panik went down with an injury. Tomlinson has been playing nearly everyday since being promoted at the beginning of August, and he is batting .346 (18 for 52). 


Padres' Jedd Gyorko powers up for two home runs on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Padres infielder Jedd Gyorko did his best to get his club a victory on Tuesday, though the Padres wound up falling to the Nationals 8-3. Gyorko went 2 for 4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in the loss.

Gyorko hit a two-run blast in the second inning, which actually gave the Padres a 2-0 lead at the time. He later added a solo shot in the seventh, but by then it was too late to avoid the defeat.

The pair of longballs give Gyorko 10 for the season, which matches his total output from the 2014 season.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

New Phillies prospects merely OK in minors this season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
