He was scouted and signed by SILVERMAN BABY!

San Diego Padres prize 1B prospect Anthony Rizzo will be called up to the majors on Thursday. He’s hitting .365 with 16 homers and an OPS of 1.159 in AAA. He’s also the son of hot-headed auto mechanic Frank Rizzo, and nephew of his late Uncle Freddy. Uncle Freddy died???  No word on when Jack Tors will be brought up.

INJURY NEWS

Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia has an injured knee and could miss up to a month.

Rays 3B Evan Longoria remains out with the flu.

Blue Jays top prospect 3B Brett Lawrie suffered a fractured hand so his call up has been postponed.  Probably not postponed as long as Harry Getzoff’s.
