The Rays suspended jerk prospect Josh Sale

Josh Sale, last seen bragging on Facebook about how good he is at demeaning women, has been suspended by the Tampa Bay Rays:

 

Not that suspensions are new to Sale. He was suspended for 50 games last season for methamphetamine.  I talked to a couple of people familiar with Sale yesterday and both said — and here I’m paraphrasing — that he was weapons-grade immature. I doubt that a PR-based suspension from his team will cure that, but at least now maybe he’ll keep his idiocy off social media.

Orioles place Chris Davis on injured list

The Orioles announced on Sunday that first baseman Chris Davis has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a hip injury. Pitcher Evan Phillips was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.

It is unclear when Davis, 33, suffered the injury, but he hadn’t started since Thursday. Davis famously got off to a very slow start — setting a record for futility — but has hit better over the last six weeks or so. Since April 13, he has a .229/.302/.427 batting line with five home runs and 15 RBI in 106 plate appearances. Still not what the Orioles want, but better than nothing.

Renato Núñez and Trey Mancini will handle first base while Davis is recovering from his injury.
