There may be an abbreviated schedule of major league action on the field for Thursday, but the rumor mill continues to operate at full steam this July 2. Here's a quick look at a few of the more interesting stories making the rounds today.
Chris Sale: The Chicago White Sox are considering pushing the pitcher's next start to Monday as they begin to worry a little bit about the potential toll all of these games where he has thrown between 100 and 120 pitches may take on his arm later in the season.
Miguel Sano: The Minnesota Twins are expected to promote the power-hitting prospect from Double-A in time to play in the four-game series against the Kansas City Royals that starts tonight. He'll replace Kennys Vargas on the roster.
Hunter Pence: The outfielder is not expected to be back with the San Francisco Giants prior to the All-Star Break as the team will take their time with his recovery and send him down to the minors for a few rehab games, rather than returning him to action immediately.
Patrick Corbin: The Arizona Diamondbacks are considering using Corbin on Saturday, thus bypassing his final rehab start and allowing the pitcher to get back on a major league mound in the team's upcoming series against the Colorado Rockies. Corbin underwent Tommy John surgery last March.
