Rockies prospect Alex White hates on Cleveland

24 Comments

Alex White was a top Indians prospect until the other day. Then he was shipped to the Rockies in the package for Ubaldo Jimenez. A few minutes ago he voiced his pleasure with the move, geographically-speaking:

Denver or Cleveland, Denver or Cleveland? Let’s be honest, ill take Denver. With the exception of a few people.

Look, I’m sure a lot of people would rather live in Denver than Cleveland. But I was also told that if you can’t say something nice about the city which is home to the team that drafted you and gave you $2.25 million to be a part of its future, don’t say anything at all.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
