Notes and tips

Things can't possibly get worse for the Houston Astros. They've dropped eight straight and 21 of their last 23 games overall. They've traded veterans and now GM Jeff Luhnow is hinting they'll be calling up minor leaguers to give the prospects a major league look. The kids could serve as a positive injection of youth and excitement or they could be over matched against big league talent. We'll have to wait and see.

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired infielder Hanley Ramirez in a four-player trade from the Miami Marlins early Wednesday morning. Despite the addition of Ramirez Los Angeles’ World Series futures odds aren’t flying up the board. According to Jeff Stoneback, race and sportsbook manager at the MGM Mirage in Las Vegas, the Dodgers are staying put at their current price of 10-1.

White Sox 3B Kevin Youkilis left Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Twins with a left ankle sprain. Youkilis is batting .277 with five home runs and 20 RBIs in 25 games since joining Chicago from Boston.
