Cubs call up Medina, Beeler for DH vs Reds

Sports

July 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) – The Cubs restocked their bullpen for a doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, calling up Yoervis Medina from Triple-A Iowa. In addition, Chicago called up Dallas Beeler to start the second game. He’ll be the 26th man. Beeler also was called up to start in a doubleheader against St. Louis on July 7.

The Cubs were coming off a 13-inning, 5-4 win on Tuesday night that depleted the bullpen. Medina appeared in three games for the Cubs in June, throwing five scoreless innings. Starter Clayton Richard was designated for assignment. The Cubs got him from Pittsburgh on July 3 for cash, and he went 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two starts and one relief appearance.

Holliday’s grand slam sends Cardinals over White Sox

Sports

July 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Matt Holliday hit his sixth career grand slam, powering Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals past the Chicago White Sox 8-5 on Tuesday night. Holliday homered for the first time since May 12. He returned last Friday after missing 31 games because of a strained right quadriceps. Holliday connected in the fourth inning for his fourth homer. Mark Reynolds added a solo shot in the fifth.

Wacha (11-3) gave up five runs in five innings. Trevor Rosenthal pitched the ninth for his 28th save in 30 chances. Stephen Piscotty, St. Louis’ top hitting prospect, made his major league debut playing left field. He had an infield single in four at-bats and struck out twice. Carlos Rodon (3-3) was tagged for seven hits in four innings as the Cardinals built a 7-0 lead. Chicago lost its third in a row.

 

Chiefs waive rookie Cox after domestic assault charge

Sports

July 22nd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have waived defensive back Justin Cox, who was charged with domestic assault, burglary and trespassing for an incident that occurred Monday in Starkville, Mississippi. Cox was being held on $40,433 bond. The case is still under investigation.

This is the second time in the past year that Cox has been arrested for an incidence of domestic violence, though the previous charge was ultimately dropped. Cox instead pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of trespassing in January. Cox signed with the Chiefs after going undrafted out of Mississippi State, in part because of his off-the-field issues. He was suspended the final three games last year after his arrest.

Iowa State DL Meyers finishing chemo for Hodgkin’s lymphoma

Sports

July 21st, 2015 by Ric Hanson

DALLAS (AP) — Iowa State defensive lineman Mitchell Meyers is close to wrapping up chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a process during which he didn’t miss any summer workouts with his teammates. Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads said Tuesday that Meyers has his last scheduled chemo appointment Friday in Iowa.

Rhoads said Mitchell, who is from the Houston area, will then return to Texas for radiation treatment before rejoining the team in September. Iowa State announced in February that Meyers had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was beginning treatment.

Rhoads said prayers are still extended for Mitchell and his family, and that the team watches “in admiration and appreciation each and every single day.” Mitchell, listed at 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, was one of only four ISU players to start every game last season.

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have called up outfielder/first baseman Stephen Piscotty, their top hitting prospect, from Triple-A Memphis prior to Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. The Cardinals optioned outfielder Tommy Pham to Memphis on Sunday to make room for Piscotty on the 40-man major-league roster.

The right-handed-hitting Piscotty was batting .272 with 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in his 87 games at Memphis this season. He has raised his season average from .243 since June 1 by batting .308 (44 for 143) over the past six weeks.

Piscotty will make his major league debut with his first game appearance.
