After another 0'fer on Friday, and manager Terry Collins already hinting that he was on thin ice, it seems it was the last straw for Michael Conforto. He will be optioned back to AAA Las Vegas after batting just .119 this month and .169 in May.
Zobrist who was hit in the foot by reliever Mike Dunn in the seventh inning of the Cubs 5-4 win over Miami Friday was diagnosed with just some bruising on his foot. Zobrist who came out early becuse he said he was uncomfortable running the bases was able to run sprints in the outfield today. He will get some rest Saturday while Javier Baez gets the start in is place.
Jose Reyes, former Met, and now one once again, will already be starting third base for A Brooklyn on Sunday. It's the wish of manager Terry Collins to get Reyes up to speed as quickly as possible. It's no secret the Mets lineup has seen more than it' share of injuries this season, and they hope signing Reyes could be at least part of their answer to returning to the playoffs this year.
After landing the young Duke standout Brandon Ingram at the draft on Thursday, and two starters still under 21 years of age, it's evident that Lakers are looking to the future. One thing they are seriously still lacking is a productive, dominant big man. At just 27 years old, Whiteside is just now coming into his prime. He led the league last year with 3.7 blocks per game and 11.8 rebounds. The Lakers won't be the only team making a big ush for him this free agency, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
