  • SF Relief Pitcher #64
    The right-hander was called up on Wednesday and threw 20 pitches in 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Now he’ll go back down to make room for a fresh arm in the bullpen, Tristan Beck. In 23 1/3 MLB innings this year, Hjelle has a 8.10 ERA, 2.10 WHIP, and 26 strikeouts.
  • SF Relief Pitcher #43
    Beck is one of multiple moves on Thursday as the Giants reshuffle their bullpen with fresh arms. The right-hander has been solid this season, registering a 4.04 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 62 strikeouts across 75 2/3 innings in 31 appearances this season. Sean Hjelle was optioned to make room on the active roster.
  • SF Shortstop #37
    Luciano will be called up to take the spot of Brandon Crawford, who was placed on the IL with a hamstring injury. The 21-year old Luciano just recovered from his own hamstring injury suffered in August. He played just four games with the Giants earlier this season, going 3-for-11 with two runs scored. He will now get a chance to help the team try to claim one of the final NL Wild Card spots.
  • SF Shortstop #35
    Crawford was removed from Wednesday night’s game with right hamstring tightness and clearly the Giants are concerned enough that they decided to move Crawford to the IL. The 10-Day timeline means Crawford could return for the final day of the season if the team wanted. The 36-year-old is in the midst of a down year, hitting .197/.276/.319 with seven home runs and three steals in 93 games. Marco Luciano was called up to take his place.
  • MIA Starting Pitcher #22
    The 28-year-old reigning National League Cy Young award winner threw a bullpen session on Monday and will now progress to facing live hitters as he recovers from a UCL sprain. Given that his bullpen session was just 20 pitches, Alcantara will likely be limited to something around 30-40 pitches tonight. With just over a week to go in the MLB season, it’s possible that the Marlins are looking to bring Alcantara back for shorter stints but that will all depend on how he looks and feels on Thursday.
  • CLE Starting Pitcher #33
    The 25-year-old was demoted to Triple-A at the start of the month after posting a 4.85 ERA over six starts and four relief appearances in the majors this season. He hasn’t been much better in the minors, with a 6.14 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts in 73 1/3 innings at Triple-A.
  • TOR Starting Pitcher #70
    Tiedemann is set for around 80 pitches in his first start at Triple-A. The 21-year-old Blue Jays top prospect has been dominant in the minors this season with a 4.05 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a 76 strikeouts across 40 innings in his 14 appearances as both a starter and reliever.
  • MIL Right Fielder #22
    Yelich has now played in just one game since hurting his back on September 8th. The Brewers still made the decision not to put him on the IL. Milwaukee has a seven game lead in the NL Central with 10 games to play, so they have no reason to rush their star back. Blake Perkins will start in centerfield with Mark Canha in left field and Sal Frelick in right field.
  • DET General Manager
    Although Jeff Greenberg is currently an associate GM with the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL, he worked with current Tigers president of baseball operations Scott Harris when both were with the Chicago Cubs. While with the Cubs, Greenberg played a key role in creating the systems and strategies that helped the Cubs scout and develop talent. He held roles as Director of Pro Scouting and Baseball Operations, Director of Baseball Operations, Assistant to the General Manager, and served as Assistant General Manager in his final three seasons. Greenberg will be the 20th General Manager in the 123-year history of the Tigers.
  • TB Left Fielder #55
    Raley was scheduled to undergo an MRI today after his left arm felt numb on his last swing on Wednesday. Even with a right-handed pitcher on the mound, Raley is not in the lineup today and there’s a chance that the Rays could place him on the IL. Jonathan Aranda will start in his place.
