OF Ramon Laureano with his first shot in the bigs after getting the callup to the A's. He was hitting .297/.380/.524 at AAA Nashville after missing time early in the season when he broke his hand in ST.

Good for him and hope he does well.

Oh my...

Sebastian Kessay was picked up out of indy ball by the Dbacks. Had one very bad outing (4 1/3 IP, 8 H, 8 ER, 3 BB, 4 K) and then a solid one inning outing and the was placed on the DL. 
Always ready to go to a game.

A couple of pieces in the Verlander swap both playing at AA Erie:

Daz Cameron: .352/.410/.690*
Jake Rogers: .210/.306/.371**

*17 games since being called up from FSL
**Throwing out 57% of baserunners

Cameron gets his 2nd promotion of the year. The Tigers have now moved him up to AAA Toledo after hitting .285/.367/.470 in 53 games for Erie.

Is this a flash in the pan or could he be another J. D. Martinez?
Only time will tell.

Can only protect a few, and there is a lot of talent in the system.

I was watching him the other night against the Twins. He's stockier than I imagined.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Don't want to make this the Laureano thread but since he is helping out our division rival...

2 walks and RBI single tonight. .304/.347/.522 after 17 games.

It's a great story, even tho Laureano's success puts pressure on his FORMER team. 
To this point he is having a similar debut as Tyler White in 2016 and - hopefully - a few years later.
Keep the updates coming. 
The highlights Houston's ability to find and develop talent - and a farm system that is so stacked that there is not enough room for all the talent to reach the majors with the big league club.

Nowhere else to put this so...

He's trailed off the last month or so but Cavan Biggio is batting .266/.394/.532 for AA New Hampshire (Eastern League).

Currently hitting .256/.393/.509 with 26 HRs and 98 RBIs and today named league MVP. BJs are also sending him to the AFL.

29 games into his MLB career, Laureano with his second 2-homer game. Was batting leadoff for the A's.

Ramon Laureano has a pair of outfield assists tonight and has seven total on the season. He's tied for third in the AL ... and has played just 33 games. He also led the Texas League with 16 assists in 2017.

Didn't help him tonight.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
