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.
Medlen who's been rehabbing his shoulder down in AA Northwest Arkansas, will now be moved up to AAA Omaha ranks. He will get the start Saturday as he gets closer to returning to the Royals. Still no timetable in place, but it stands to reason that if everything goes well, he could be called upon by the end of the month.
