MLB Makes Change Involving International Players

Rodon Takes Charlotte

PITCHER OF THE DAY: Matt Barnes, rhp — Triple-A Pawtucket (Red Sox)

Although he was the 19th overall pick in 2011, it'd be easy for Matt Barnes to get lost in the avalanche of pitchers the Red Sox have compiled. He's been overshadowed to an extent by Henry Owens, Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and others, but Barnes delivered a gem Wednesday night. The 24-year-old from UConn fired 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a 9-0 win over Lehigh Valley, humping his fastball to reportedly as high as 96. Barnes is 7-8, 3.89 for the season, but has been excellent in his past six starts, not allowing more than two earned runs.

HITTER OF THE DAY: Aaron Judge, rf, high Class A Tampa (Yankees).

While the major league team stumbles toward perhaps its worst finish since 1992, the giant, righthanded hitter gives the team hope for a powerful future. The 6-foot-7, 22-year-old from Fresno State blasted two doubles and a homer Wednesday as Tampa demolished Brevard County. Across two levels, the 2013 first-rounder is .307/.416/.495 with 17 homers in 436 at-bats.
