7/24/2016 | Diaz, Frazier among top prospect performers Saturday

The Midwest League is notorious for dampening the power of young hitters. Apparently no one told that to Isan Diaz.

7/23/2016 | With Fryer on paternity list, Diaz gets 2nd callup

7/23/2016 | Vogelbach, Berrios among top prospect performers Friday

7/21/2016 | Hurdle happy to see vintage Liriano on display

The results had been creeping in the right direction for Francisco Liriano this month, small but visible signs of progress. He limited the damage to three runs or less in back-to-back starts, then he completed six innings his last time out. But still, it wasn't quite vintage Liriano. Thursday night at PNC Park? That was more like it.
