MLB News: Joc Peterson, Maikel Franco, Daniel Norris promoted


Three top prospects were called up by their respective teams today. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Philadelphia Phillies, and Toronto Blue Jays will all get a glimpse into the future with the promotions of their top prospects today as rosters expand from 25-man rosters to 40-man rosters.

The Dodgers have promoted outfielder Joc Pederson, as Ryan Walton of the Valley Bay News first reported. Peterson is the No. 1 prospect in the Dodgers system on numerous rankings, as scouts praise his power and willingness to walk. The Phillies have promoted third baseman Maikel Franco, according to Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer. MLB.com ranked Franco as the Phillies third-best prospect in their system and has plenty of raw power. The Blue Jays have promoted lefty Daniel Norris, as Sportnet.ca's Shi Davidi first reported. Norris is the Blue Jays top prospect and uses a good mix of pitches to show big league poise even in the minors.

Brewers Rumors: Milwaukee targeted David Price


The Milwaukee Brewers remained relatively quiet at the non-waiver trade deadline, acquiring Gerardo Parra from the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 31st. Although they are in contention to perhaps win a playoff spot, the Brewers targeted someone that almost really gave them an edge in the National League playoff race.

Milwaukee pursued former Tampa Bay Rays left-hander David Price before July 31st, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports first reported. However, they could never get close because the Brewers were unwilling to part with former top prospect and rookie pitcher Jimmy Nelson, who has a 92 ERA+ (park adjusted ERA; 100 is considered league average) in nine starts on the year.

Blue Jays News: Toronto acquires John Mayberry Jr.


The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired outfielder John Mayberry Jr. from the Philadelphia Phillies, the teams announced late Sunday evening.

Mayberry will be allowed to make the Blue Jays postseason roster, if they make it that far, since they made the transaction before September 1st, the deadline to be eligible for the postseason. In return for the outfielder, the Phillies will be receiving minor league third baseman Gustavo Pierre, who did not rank on any top prospect lists prior to this season.
