Orioles just called up Chaz Roe.  Bucs claimed Roe off waivers in September 2014, but didn't do anything with him, and he became a free agent

From CBSSports.com:  "Roe only pitched two innings for Pittsburgh in 2014."   No he didn't!  I recall the Bucs claiming him, then almost immediately changing their minds and dropping him.

Brooks Pounders called up by the Royals.  That will make him the first and most likely only HS pitcher from the 2009 Pirate draft to make the majors.  He was picked the highest of them all, but was not really as highly thought of.  I believe he signed for slot as well.

The game of musical catchers continues with Michael McKenry leaving St Louis after 3 games and squatting in AAA for Atlanta.  I guess it was always a pipe dream to have Kratz, Fryer, and McKenry each catch three innings in the same game.  Or pitch three innings. Or....

I still don't know why Houston and Cleveland both released him? I am glad he is playing too.

Speaking of the Twins, when I went to look at their boxscore yesterday and check out Grossman, I noticed the savior, Miguel Angel Sano wasn't having a particularly impressive season. Numbers very reminiscent of a struggling McCutchen.

Just noticed Neil Walker's monthly OPS numbers aren't exactly trending in the right direction:
March/April .962
May  .754
June  .565
July  .512

I wonder what's going on with him.

Maybe he has Niese disease and is just going down hill as he gets older.

Walker was having back issues when he was playing against Pittsburgh.  Maybe it flared up again?  I would still rather have him starting at 2B for the Pirates.
