White Sox option Adam Engel to Triple-A Charlotte

Following Friday's loss to the Indians, the White Sox optioned outfielder Adam Engel to Triple-A Charlotte. 

Engel played in eight games for the South Siders, hitting .300 with three runs scored. The 25-year-old also proved to be valuable on the bases, swiping four bags. Only Leury Garcia (6) and Tim Anderson (5) have more steals this season. 

The Sox will make a corresponding roster move before tomorrow's game in Cleveland, which could turn out to be newly acquired infielder Alen Hanson. 

Hanson, 24, is a former MLB Top 100 prospect. A native of the Dominican Republic, Hanson has struggled with the Pirates, hitting under .200 in 37 games this season. In his minor-league career, he's produced a slash line of .281/.340/.435.

Nationals owner says team has moved on from Bryce Harper

You can officially count one of the reported suitors for superstar free agent Bryce Harper.

Nationals owner Mark Lerner said to NBC Sports Washington's Lisa Redmond that the team has moved on from Harper.

"Nothing's certainly changed on our end," Lerner told NBC Sports Washington on Friday. "We've moved on. As I said back then and we had to. There was no way we could wait around.

"Bryce, I'm sure will make his decision hopefully in the next few days, but we've filled out our roster and like I said, we wish him nothing but the best."

In addition to the Nationals, reports this offseason have linked Harper to the White Sox, Phillies and the Giants and Padres, more recently. MLB Network's Jon Heyman said there are at least five teams still in contact with Harper.

But what about the Nationals?

"But there's always that, the door's cracked a little bit," Lerner said. "I have no clue at this point what they're up to. We really haven't heard from them in a couple months."
