Wisler pitched for the Braves in each of the last 4 seasons, totaling 74 career appearances and 49 starts.

Tucker, 28, originally was selected by the Astros in the seventh round of the 2012 first-year player draft. He was traded to Atlanta in December 2017 in exchange for cash considerations and spent most of 2018 with the Braves, hitting .256 with 10 doubles, 4 HR and 22 RBI in 62 games. He also made 15 appearances for Gwinnett.

Nationals 1B Mark Reynolds recent NL Player of the Week

Washington Nationals first baseman Mark Reynolds was named the National League Player of the Week presented by W.B. Mason for the period ending July 8th.

In recognition of his National League Player of the Week Award, Mark Reynolds will be awarded a watch courtesy of Rockwell.

Reynolds batted .625 (10-for-16) with seven runs scored, two doubles, three home runs and 12 RBI across seven games played to claim his fourth career NL Player of the Week Award, last winning for the period ending April 25, 2010 as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Among his NL counterparts with a minimum of 16 at-bats, Mark finished the week first in batting average, on-base percentage (.684), slugging percentage (1.313) and RBI; tied for second in home runs, extra-base hits (5) and total bases (21); and tied for fifth in hits. Reynolds also made his Major League pitching debut on Sunday, retiring his only batter faced via ground out. This is Washington’s third weekly award of the 2018 season, following his teammates, 2018 All-Star Max Scherzer (April 15th) and outfielder Adam Eaton (April 1st).

In Saturday’s 18-4 victory over the Miami Marlins at Nationals Park, Reynolds, who signed as a free agent during the 2018 season on April 17th, batted a perfect 5-for-5 with three runs scored, a double, two home runs and 10 RBI. The 34-year-old veteran became just the third Major Leaguer since at least 1908 to reach those totals in a single contest, joining his teammate Anthony Rendon (April 30, 2017) and Hall of Famer Jim Bottomley (September 16, 1924). Overall, Reynolds became the 15th player in Major League history to reach the 10-RBI mark in a game. Coupled with his teammate Trea Turner’s eight-RBI effort on Thursday, the duo became the second pair of teammates in NL history to each record at least eight RBI in games during a span of three days, joining Hall of Famers Willie Mays and Orlando Cepeda of the 1961 San Francisco Giants. Following a multi-hit effort in his final game of the week on Sunday, the University of Virginia product enters play today with a .300 (33-for-110) batting average on the season to go along with 19 runs scored, 10 home runs and 24 RBI.

Other noteworthy performances last week included 2016 All-Star first baseman Wil Myers (.350, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 22 TB) of the San Diego Padres; four-time All-Star second baseman Starlin Castro (.500, 6 R, 15 H, 3 XBH) of the Marlins; starting pitcher Tyler Anderson (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 8.0 IP, 9 SO) of the Colorado Rockies; starter Junior Guerra (2-0, 0.82 ERA, 11.0 IP, 12 SO) of the Milwaukee Brewers; starter Zack Godley (1-0, 1.29 ERA, 7.0 IP, 9 SO) and 2018 All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt (.448, 13 H, 4 XBH, 7 RBI) of the Arizona Diamondbacks; 2018 All-Star third baseman Eugenio Suárez (.429, 7 R, 4 XBH, 7 RBI) of the Cincinnati Reds; and third baseman Jedd Gyorko (.417, 4 R, 5 XBH, 7 RBI) of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Beloit’s Poche, Reagan too tough to solve for Dragons in shutout loss




Beloit, Wisc.—Beloit starting pitcher Jared Poche and reliever Josh Reagan combined on a five-hit shutout as the Snappers topped the Dayton Dragons 5-0 on Saturday night.  The game was the start of a three-game series that will continue through Monday afternoon.


The Snappers scored all five runs in the sixth inning, collecting five hits in the frame.  Meanwhile, the Dragons could not mount many threats at the plate.  They advanced only two runners past first base in the game and had just two at-bats with men in scoring position, going 0 for 2.

Jared Poche'


Dragons starting pitcher Packy Naughton (5-9) pitched scoreless baseball over his first five innings, but allowed the first four batters to reach in the sixth and was lifted from the game.  Over five innings, he allowed eight hits and four runs with two walks and three strikeouts.


Offensively, Lorenzo Cedrola and Hendrik Clementina each had two hits for the Dragons while Jeter Downs had one.  All five hits were singles.


The Dragons best chance to score came in the second inning when Downs singled, went to second on Clementina’s ground out, and stole third.  Mark Kolozsvary walked, setting up a first-and-third, one-out situation.  But Leandro Santana grounded into a double play to end the threat.


The Dragons fell to 13-16 in the second half.  They are one game behind Fort Wayne and Lake County for the wildcard lead in the Midwest League East Division Second Half playoff chase.  Beloit improved to 19-8 in the second half.  They have won 14 of their last 16 games.
