He joined the organization after being traded by the Mets for Rockies outfielder Eric Young Jr. … Friday was Aces righty Diogenes Rosario’s Triple-A debut. He started the season with the Visalia Rawhide of the Class-A Advanced California League. … Righty Mark Serrano was transferred from Class AA Mobile and scheduled to take on recent Rockies starter Juan Nicasio after starter Zeke Spruill went on the 7-day disabled list.
