Athletics Starting Pitcher Jarrod Parker Suffers Fractured Elbow, Needs Surgery

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Already rehabbing from Tommy John Surgery that caused him to miss the entire 2014 season, Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Jarrod Parker has suffered a fractured bone in his elbow, and will need another surgery.

Parker was diagnosed with a fractured medial epicondyle in his pitching elbow, the same elbow that underwent the Tommy John Surgery. The severity of the injury isn't quite known yet at this time.

Having undergone the procedure last March, Parker suffered the injury while throwing a pitch during his rehab start on Friday. He was about two weeks away from rejoining the Athletics starting rotation had he stayed healthy.

“#11 can do this! Thanks for all the (strength) and support ... I’ll continue to need!” Parker tweeted on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Parker showed great promise during his two years in the starting rotation for the team. He's gone 25-16 with a 3.68 ERA in 62 starts during his career.

Red Sox Demote Outfielder Allen Craig to the Minors

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(TORONTO) -- The Boston Red Sox have seen enough of Allen Craig as the team has decided to demote the five-year veteran to the minor leagues.

In a pair of moves, the team has sent Craig and reliever Robbie Ross Jr. to to Triple-A Pawtucket while promoting outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and pitcher Steven Wright.

"We sent him out to try get back on track and get him more regular, more consistent at-bats, not only for his own production but maybe so he can get into a situation where he can come back and help us," Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

"This is as much about Allen as it is us and the current stretch we're going through," he continued. "We felt like the best and most clear path to get us back on track is to have every player hopefully performing to the best of their abilities. For Allen, that meant more regular at-bats at Triple-A for the time being."

Before coming to the Red Sox in 2014 via trade from the St. Louis Cardinals, Craig was a key member of a team that won two World Series titles from 2011-2013.

Craig hit .291 during his time with the Cardinals, but is hitting just .130 since being traded to Boston.

Kris Bryant Hits 1st Major League Home Run

Chicago Cubs/MLB(MILWAUKEE) -- Chicago Cubs rookie third baseman Kris Bryant hit his first career major league home run in the third inning of the team's 12-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.

Bryant had gone 20 games and 73 to begin his major league career. It was the Cubs' first three-run home run this season.

"Get the first one out of the way. Kind of been a while, but I did it," Bryant said afterwards. "It was a cool feeling, but it would be nice to get a win out of it. It will still be a day I'll remember."

As Bryant rounded the bases, the entire Cubs team ran into the clubhouse so when he arrived back it was empty.

"It's pretty funny that they all came in here [the clubhouse] and when I come back to the dugout nobody was in the dugout, so that was pretty funny," Bryant said. "We had a good time with it. They were waiting by the door. It was kind of like a mosh pit, punching me and all that kind of stuff."

The 20 games without a home run was the longest streak in Bryant's collegiate or professional career.

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Former Cleveland Indians pitching coach Carl Willis, is set to join Boston and become the Red Sox new pitching coach.

Willis is currently serving as the Indians' Triple-A pitching coach for the Columbus (Ohio) Clippers, however, he informed the Clippers he had taken the Red Sox job after their game Friday night, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

"They're to announce it for me [Saturday]," Willis said. "The deal was I didn't want to leave until the Indians could arrange for someone to get here, and they're prepared to get through the weekend without somebody in Boston.  So getting there after their game Saturday, we play Sunday and fly to Oakland.  So that will be a good five-hour trip that I can get brought up to speed on everything that's going on there."

Willis was the Indians' pitching coach from 2003-09 and he served as the pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners from 2010-13.  As a pitching coach, Willis had three Cy Young Award winners on his staffs: CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee in Cleveland and Felix Hernandez in Seattle.
