The Reds sent minor league catcher Joe Hudson to the Angels for cash.
The 27-year-old Hudson has never played in the majors. He batted .235 with no homers and three RBIs in 16 games for Triple-A Louisville this season.
ST. LOUIS — Max Fried was so good that he didn’t even need all the support Nick Markakis and the Braves provided for his first win of the season.
Markakis hit a grand slam, Fried took a shutout into the seventh inning and Atlanta beat the St. Louis Cardinals 11-4 on Saturday night.
You’ve got to give all the credit to Max, Markakis said. He went out and pitched one of the better games I’ve seen. For him, two runs early on was enough for him. It was nice to get some runs and give him a nice cushion there.
One would think that Young has learned to watch what he says on camera years ago.
Ayton declared himself the No. 1 pick after his workout with the Suns, and all indications are that Phoenix will choose him first. The Suns have looked at other candidates for this spot, and there is always a chance (however slim) that the top pick could be moved. Not likely, though.
Ayton has a lot riding on going first because he has only worked out for the Suns, and a source noted that he will not work out for any other team before the draft.
This was Year 5 of McDonough’s time with the Suns. After the team won 48 games in his first season, he has overseen the worst four-year stretch in franchise history since, with a .326 winning percentage and an average of just 26.8 wins per year.
