To the DL

Atlanta Braves C Alex Jackson was recently placed on the DL for an undisclosed injury. Jackson is in his first year for the Braves, after being acquired this past offseason. Similarly, this is also his first year catching. He is tied for second in home runs with Cincinnati’s Gavin LaValley in the pitcher friendly Florida State League with 10, behind leader Logan Hill whom has 13. Hill plays for the Pirates’s affiliate Bradenton Marauders.

The Call-Up: Magneuris Sierra

Javier Barragan

Injuries hit the Cardinals' outfield hard, so they reached down to Single-A for help.

The Situation: The Cardinals have lost three outfielders in as many days. Thursday night, Dexter Fowler strained his right shoulder after a diving catch attempt. In the same game, Stephen Piscotty strained his right hamstring, which later forced him to the disabled list. Two nights later, Jose Martinez came up limping while legging out a dribbler because of a groin injury. Though the Red Birds called up outfielder Tommy Pham on Friday in the corresponding DL move, they also have another outfielder coming with Martinez’s imminent DL transaction. All the way from Single-A, we have Magneuris Sierra.

The Background: Turning 21 years old a month ago, the Dominican-born prospect was signed in 2012 for the bargain price of $105,000. He promptly started his career in 2013, playing 97 percent of his innings at center field and the remaining action in right field. He has advanced a level each season, reaching High-A Palm Beach this year. Added to the 40-man roster this offseason, Sierra will see MLB time shoring up the Cardinals' defense.

Started the season on the DL

2016 Cubs Minor League Player of the Year and ninth prospect on our 2017 Prospect List, RF Eloy Jimenez has started the season on the DL with a bone bruise. This should be no major flag, as rest is all the doctor ordered.
