Getting from two-strike counts to strikeouts can be tricky, especially for the Red Sox.

Minor League Update: Games of May 11

Wilson Karaman

Notes on Willy Adames, Brent Honeywell, Erick Fedde, Mike Gerber, Jesus Tinoco, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Mike Gerber, RF, Detroit Tigers (Double-A Erie): 4-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI
Gerber’s been prone to this kind of outburst this season, and it jives with his boom-bust offensive approach. He whiffs a too much for a kid with fringy game power, but he also does a lot of things decently enough that the sum of the parts adds up to a probable big-league asset.

Tensions are running high in the American League East these days.

Read the full article...

Jake Arrieta looks like his old, old self, Julio Urias flirts with a no-hitter, and the Cardinals and Orioles stay hot.

The Tuesday Takeaway

It took only half a season for Jake Arrieta to transform from relatively insignificant transaction jetsam to legitimate major-league ace; it hasn’t taken too much longer for him to transform into something confusingly between the two. Last year was full of performances that provoked “what’s wrong with Jake Arrieta?” and this year has brought only more of the same so far—though, at this point, those performances are not so much baffling as they are simply a new normal.

Matt Wieters and Edwin Encarnacion return to their old stomping grounds, Mark Trumbo reaches up for a homer, and the Pirates have a bad day on and off the field.

Chris Sale gets the best of both worlds, Matt Albers avoids the wrong side of history, Javier Baez takes to the skies, and Billy Hamilton exhibits superhuman speed.

The Weekend Takeaway

Good pitchers flourish at the intersection of dominant pitching and plentiful run support, and on Sunday afternoon, Chris Sale hit the coveted sweet spot.

The Call-Up: Magneuris Sierra

1

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.
