Getting into plays like this, no wonder Navarro injured his hamstrings. As far as blocking the plate, those are not good fundamentals, Dioner. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images).
Good news everyone! At the Major League level, there were no injuries over the last week. No DL stints nor even the little nagging kinds of things that sideline players for a few days. There were several injuries in the Minor league ranks, however. Starting at the top and working our way down, Dioner Navarro was activated from the DL on July 25. He had spent 10 days on the DL with a strained hamstring. Coinciding with Navarro's activation was Brian Peacock's placement on the DL with back spasms. They may have been waiting for Navarro to be activated to make this move, since Peacock had not played since the 23rd.
Brett Tomko was also activated on July 25, but was limited on his pitch count, which is why he completed only 3 innings (not pitching very effectively also contributed to the shortness).
At high-A, the Bakersfield Blaze activated LHP Chris Joyce from a 20-day DL stint on July 25. It must have been official Roster Transaction Day within the organization.
And at low-A, the Dayton Dragons placed two players on the DL on July 26. OF Jefry Sierra dislocated his non-throwing shoulder. Denis Phipps missed a month and a half from a similar injury earlier this year. Second, personal favorite Radhames Quezada was placed on the 7-day DL. And with shoulder discomfort of all things. Here's to hoping Rowdy Radhames (HT: ManBearPig) has no structural damage.
