The first is that raising star Yency Almonte who owns a sub-2.00 ERA was placed on the disabled list. In his last start, Almonte was pulled in the early innings due to shoulder stiffness. Hopefully, a few weeks rest does the trick.
The other big news is that top prospect Ryan McMahon was named Double-A Player of the Month for April. McMahon led the Eastern League in hits, and RBI while maintaining a .375 average. McMahon is 22 years old.
