7/26/2016 | Duffey hosts Foltynewicz in Interleague finale

7/24/2016 | Diaz, Frazier among top prospect performers Saturday

The Midwest League is notorious for dampening the power of young hitters. Apparently no one told that to Isan Diaz. The Brewers' No. 11 prospect slugged a pair of home runs on Saturday, including a walk-off shot to propel Class A Wisconsin past Lake County, 9-8.

7/23/2016 | Rockies hang on after Gray's gem vs. Braves

In a rematch of a pitcher's duel from five days prior against Julio Teheran, the Rockies' Jon Gray got the upper hand. The rookie right-hander tossed seven brilliant innings and closer Carlos Estevez survived a wild ninth for a 4-3 victory over the Braves on Friday night at Coors Field.


7/22/2016 | Braves hoping Teheran's back injury is minor

"Hopefully" was the term most frequently used as the Braves exited Friday night's 4-3 loss to the Rockies concerned about their ace, Julio Teheran, who had exited in the fifth inning with upper back discomfort that could disappear in a couple of days or linger long enough to require a stint on the disabled list.
