Eric Stephen | True Blue LA: Dodgers pitching prospect Josiah Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday. According to MLB Pipeline, Gray is the Dodgers’ highest-ranking pitcher in their farm system and the 42nd best overall prospect in baseball. The Dodgers, who were supposed to have bulletproof rotation depth, have needed all hands on deck with injuries to Clayton Kershaw, Dustin May, and David Price.

Alex Schultz | SF Gate: While teams pack stadiums to full capacity, some are still disallowing minor leaguers to stay with host families. Stockton Ports players only have one realistic option during homestands: stay in the team hotel. Even then, players are losing money just by paying for housing alone.

Scott Merkin | MLB.com: Luis Robert has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday. Robert has been out since May 2 with a torn right hip flexor. With Eloy Jiménez almost back with the big league club and Robert beginning his rehab, the White Sox are close to being full strength.

Quick Hits

The Mets hit back-to-back homers twice in a 15-11 win over the Reds.

The Giants also went back-to-back in the first inning, which was ultimately enough to down the Dodgers 7-2.

Drew Robinson announced his retirement over the weekend, but he still had at least one circus catch left in him.
