O'Neill is hitting .244/.328/.479 with 19 HR in AAA this season. Hit .293/.374/.508 with 24 HR in AA last year, .260/.316/.558 with 32 HR in high A the year before. He was the Mariners' #2 prospect according to MLB.com and a consensus top-100 prospect.

This is an INCREDIBLE trade! Gave up a guy who basically has no future here and whose upside is pretty limited for a top 50 prospect who has huge power and upside. And he actually takes walks! Immediately becomes our best hitting prospect and probably is 2nd best overall behind Reyes.

If you wanna see what Seattle fans think of this, check this out. They are furious :lol: .

I also have to think another move is coming to clear up the OF logjam. The next 10 days will be interesting.

Yeah. Fowler and Piscotty locked up. Pham hitting. Grichuk there. And Bader, Garcia, Martini, Arozarena, Sierra, Mercado and now O'Neill in just the top two levels of the minors. Got Plummer, Denton, Carlson, and Machado too.

MLB.com has slotted O'Neill in as the Cardinals' #4 prospect behind Reyes, Kelly, and Weaver. Ahead of Perez.

Jose Martinez underwent a battery of concussion tests on Friday after an eighth-inning foul ball off Carpenter's bat struck him around the left temple. The initial tests came back negative, and Martinez will be re-examined on Saturday to determine his availability for the rest of the series.

I like this, because, with the exception of the bullpen, production out of RF has been our biggest disappointment. Pham has shown that he deserves a starting job, in LF. Fowler, in CF, has not been stellar, but he has been playing better of late. It will be interesting to see how Piscotty performs, when he cones back.

Dexter Fowler to the 10 day DL with a left forearm strain and purchased the contract of OF Harrison Bader. 1B Chad Huffman has been outrighted and granted his release.

That keeps the 40 man roster at 39. There's a spot open for an acquisition still.

Good. Looking forward to seeing what Bader can do.

BIZARRE IMO, as great as Sierra has performed & as great of CF as Pham has played.

Is there some impact where it's advantageous to limit Sierra's callups?

"Great" is a bit of a stretch for Sierra. He's been lucky at the plate. 19 hits, 19 singles. I think short-term callups were his. Long-term they're looking for more of an impact than Sierra can provide.

But still think Pham should be in CF tonight and while Bader is up. But sounds like they're going to see if Bader can stick there.

Over his July callup he was 7-for-20 with 7 singles & 2RBI..

Over similar July stretch Wong was 6-for-24 with 6 singles & 0RBI.

Just sayin' ................... ;)

MLB.com's Midseason Top-100 prospects came out this morning and they had four on the list.

#17 RHP Alex Reyes
#36 C Carson Kelly
#53 RHP Jack Flaherty
#65 RHP Luke Weaver

And tonight one of the Braves' pitchers graduated off the list, so now they have #100 OF Tyler O'Neill as well.

Luke Weaver will be optioned to Memphis with Sam Tuivailala recalled.

Probably just for a couple days though. Adam Wainwright is set to be activated on Sunday in his return to the rotation.
