Brewers to acquire Xavier Cedeno from White Sox

Leave a comment

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Milwaukee Brewers are acquiring lefty reliever Xavier Cedeno from Chicago White Sox.

Cedeno has been pretty darn good in 33 relief appearances this year, posting a 2.84 ERA and holding lefties to a line of .209/.277/.326. Not that he’s been just a lefty specialist. He’s actually faced righties 12 more times than lefties.

No word on what’s heading back to Chicago, though it’s likely not too much.

Doubleheader between Cardinals and Tigers postponed

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.

MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.

The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.

St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.

There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.

Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
