Giants place Pagan on disabled list, add outfielder

Giants place Pagan on disabled list, add outfielder If you drive to or from Sacramento in the coming days, you better see Caltrans workers installing signs identifying Interstate 80 as the Parker-Williamson Highway. Outfielders Jarrett Parker and Mac Williamson probably know every bathroom and fast-food stop along the was as they have shuttled back and forth. Williamson has been up and down twice and the Giants on Tuesday recalled Parker for the second time to replace Angel Pagan, who went on the 15-day disabled list after aggravating his hamstring strain Monday night.

Cincinnati Reds links - First trade of the season

Tuesday links! Yesterday marked both the first tangible big league trade rumor of the year for the Cincinnati Reds - that the Kansas City Royals have their eyes on Jay Bruce - and it also saw the Reds strike their first trade of any kind of the 2016 season.  Cincinnati sent Dayton Dragons pitcher Franderlin Romero to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a pair of international bonus pool slots.  No, that does not mean the Reds now own two new posh lounge chairs by the faux waterfall on a rooftop in Dubai.  The Enquirer's Zach Buchanan has a solid breakdown of what the Reds received in...
