  • Tuesday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 7-6 (F/11); Double-A Pensacola won, 9-8; High-A Beloit lost, 7-3; Low-A Jupiter won, 4-3 (F/10). Avisaíl García (Jacksonville) went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in his latest rehab game. Completely different story for teammate Troy Johnston, who stuffed the box score with two homers, a double and a walk. Zach King (Pensacola) had his best start as a Blue Wahoo (5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K).

It’s still unclear whether Jazz Chisholm Jr. (stress fracture in his back) will be able play again this season. He’ll be re-evaluated next week in hopes of resuming baseball activities.
