MLB 2024 | Three-run double by Jordan; Abreu's second homer; Gurriel Jr.'s ninth; and Luis Robert's fourth

Cuban Players News for the 2024 Major League Baseball season. A compilation of several sources


Yordan Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a three-run double and a walk versus the Angels in Friday’s win.

Alvarez is 10-for-23 with three homers and nine RBI in six games this month, raising his OPS from .792 to .851. It’d be a big surprise if he’s not one of the AL’s best hitters the rest of the way.


Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Lifts ninth homer.

Gurriel went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 10-3 loss to the Padres. Gurriel has hit safely in nine of his last 11 games, going 10-for-37 (.270) with three homers in that span. He didn't start Friday, but he entered as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and delivered with his ninth long ball of the campaign. The outfielder has added 37 RBI, 29 runs scored, three stolen bases and a .239/.282/.399 slash line over 252 plate appearances.


José Abreu hit his second homer Friday off the Angels’ Roansy Contreras.

Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-1 win over the Angels. Abreu is definitely swinging the bat better now than he was before he was sent to the minors, but that bar is so low it might as well be underground. Both of his homers have come since his return, a period that’s seen him go 5-for-27 with an 8/1 K/BB. He's slashing .122/.171/.194 with two homers, six RBI and eight runs scored over 105 plate appearances in 2024. We’re still pretty skeptical that he belongs in the majors at this point.


White Sox's Luis Robert: Pops fourth homer.

Robert went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Friday against the Red Sox. Robert did his damage in the opening inning to tally his fourth home run of the season and second in four games since returning from the injured list. Manager Pedro Grifol suggested that Robert would require regular rest days, though he has started every matchup since being activated and has gone a combined 3-for-16 with eight strikeouts.


J.P. Martínez made his first start of season.

Martínez batted ninth and played right field Friday against the Nationals in a 2-1 loss. Martínez made his first start since being called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on May 27. He went 1-for-3 adding a double in the first inning and also a strikeout in the seventh.


White Sox's Oscar Colás: Drives in pair.

Colás went 1-for-3 with two RBI on Friday against the Red Sox. Colás started for the third time in five games since being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday -- trading off starts with Gavin Sheets in right field. Colás drove in his second and third runs of the season with a single in the fourth frame. There's not much to take away from a limited sample of 15 plate appearances since he rejoined the White Sox, though Colás has struck out only three times in that span.


Mariners OF prospect Lázaro Montes went 3-for-4 with two homers and three RBI on Friday for Low-A Modesto.

Montes leads the minors with 62 RBI following Friday’s two-run blast -- his 11th round-tripper of the year. The 19-year-old prodigy holds an astronomical .337/.432/.561 triple-slash line across 248 plate appearances this season and is rapidly morphing into on the the top prospects in the entire league.
