Twins SP prospect Jose Berrios earns promotion to Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:06 am ET) The Twins promoted starting pitcher prospect Jose Berrios to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, according to Fox Sports North. 

Berrios, who is considered a top-100 prospect by MLB.com (No. 32) and Baseball America (No. 36), went 8-3 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 15 starts for Double-A Chattanooga. He struck out 92 batters and issued 24 walks in 90 2/3 innings.


Athletics RF Josh Reddick hits first homer Monday since June 12
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:04 am ET) That trot around the bases must have felt good Monday night for Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick. It had been a while since he gave himself a chance to enjoy one.

Reddick had not homered since June 12. But he has been contributing consistently by hitting safely in 17 of his last 20 starts. He has six RBI in the last five games and has maintained a strong slash line that now sits at .287/.347/.474.

He scored twice and drove in two runs in the Monday defeat of Colorado.


Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart totals career-best four hits
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:57 am ET) Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart totaled a career-high four hits and drove in two runs during an 11-7 win Monday against the Twins. He also had one run.

Barnhart had a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the first inning and an RBI single in the third inning. He doubled in the sixth and singled again in the eighth.

Barnhart has been on a nice run offensively, hitting safely in five straight games. He has totaled multiple hits four times in that span. However, Monday was the first time in 10 June games that he drove in a run.

He is batting .600 (12 for 20) with four doubles and one walk in his last five games.


Result of hip surgery for Reds C Devin Mesoraco thrills Price
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:55 am ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco underwent successful surgery Monday to repair a left hip impingement, MLB.com has reported.

Bryan Price expressed joy at the result after hearing from Mesoraco.

"Thumbs up, big thumbs up," Price said. "I've been back and forth with the texts to him. He's very happy."

Mesoraco is expected to miss the rest of the season.


Average falls for Diamondbacks' Paul Goldschmidt on hit streak
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) It seems that Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt states his case for being the finest hitter in the sport every time he swings the bat.

Goldschmidt simply continues to rake. His latest show of force is a 10-game hitting streak in which his batting average has actually fallen from .357 to .352. He has one home run and 10 RBI during that stretch.

He ranks second in the National League in average, fifth in home runs (20) and third in RBI (64).


Hand injuries should not force Reds 2B Brandon Phillips onto DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:37 am ET) The hand injuries sustained by Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips on Sunday are not expected to land him on the disabled list, according to MLB.com.

They did, however, keep him sidelined Monday. It remains to be seen how much time he will miss, but he has grown accustomed to dealing with physical issues.

"He has had to handle the hand and wrist injuries, this is his third year of really getting banged up," Bryan Price said. "He's still found a way to give us very competitive at-bats. I think he would have continued to compete if he had some tenderness with that left hand, but the issue with the right was really the one that got him out of the ballgame (Sunday)."

The loss of Phillips is certainly untimely. He is on a six-game hitting streak in which he has nine hits in 29 at-bats with two home runs.


Tigers C Alex Avila claims he's ready to roll
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:22 am ET) Tigers catcher Alex Avila is ready to be the Tigers catcher again. He has been on the disabled list since May 8 with a left knee injury, but he believes he's ready to return.

"I feel fine, I feel good," he said after catching back-to-back games for Triple-A Toledo. "My knee feels good. My legs feel good. I have no complaints. ... Being out for two months, you would expect some cobwebs."

Avila will return with a .200/.342/.317 slash line.


Suspended Mets RP Jenrry Mejia moved to Triple-A
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:48 am ET) Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia is now pitching at Triple-A Las Vegas as he continues his comeback from an 80-game suspension for using performance enhancing drugs. He pitched a scoreless inning Monday with two strikeouts.

Mejia is eligible to return to the Mets on July 7.


Alejandro De Aza showing up Hanley Ramirez in OF for Red Sox
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:34 am ET) When Hanley Ramirez returns from his wrist injury, which could be soon, he will be back in left field and Alejandro De Aza will assume his spot on the bench.

And that's not good for the Red Sox defense.

Ramirez has cost the team 14 runs in the field, more than any player at any position in the majors, according to Fangraphs.com. His inexperience, poor route-running and lack of assuredness have combined for disaster. He grades out at minus-0.3 WAR despite leading the team with 15 home runs and 38 RBI.

DeAza has provided welcome relief. He saved two runs in the sixth inning of a 3-1 win over Toronto on Monday night by snagging a gapper off the bat of Jose Bautista and adding a sweet catch to take a single away from Josh Donaldson in the ninth inning. Never mind that he's also 9-for-19 at the plate.

"He's got very good range. He can run," John Farrell told the Boston Herald. "...The range he showed tonight was as good as you're probably going to see from a left fielder."

Ramirez, on the other hand, has played the outfield like a designated hitter. But the presence of David Ortiz in that role means that Ramirez will return to left field when healthy.


Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi start moved up to Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:17 am ET) The move to the bullpen for Yankees staff mate Adam Warren has resulted in the next start for Nathan Eovaldi being switched from Friday to Wednesday against the host Angels, reports Newsday.

Eovaldi, whose outing will now be on his regular rest cycle, is coming off two consecutive quality starts. But he has allowed 105 hits in 82 1/3 innings this season and owns a 4.81 ERA despite a 7-2 record.

His 1.54 WHIP is the worst among major league starters.
