The Minnesota Twins acquired first baseman Chris Carter from the Los Angeles Angels for cash considerations in a minor league trade on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old was hitting .255 with 13 home runs and 43 RBIs in 38 games for Triple-A Salt Lake this season. He will join Minnesota’s Triple-A affiliate, the Rochester Red Wings.
He’ll probably be around 45 pitches the first (start). I’d say at least three (rehab starts).
Haniger, who spent time on the DL last season after taking a pitch to the face, is batting .296 with 11 home runs and 36 RBIs.
Yankees rookies Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar hit solo homers off Hamels. Torres, who homered twice in the series opener Monday, has seven homers in his first 26 career games.
Austin Romine, who replaced Sanchez, hit a two-run homer in the eighth but the Yankees fell short of becoming the first team to homer four or more times in four consecutive games.
Texas led 5-0 after scoring twice without a hit in the second, when German hit a batter, walked two and had three wild pitches. Still, the rookie right-hander didn’t blame the extended nine days between starts for that.

Authentic Youth Demarcus Walker Jersey A lot of guys have been striking out a ton, Alderson said.

Alderson said his assistant, former Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi, was familiar with Bautista from their days in Toronto. Alderson said he’d heard a couple of other teams were interested in signing Bautista.
