RECENT TRANSACTIONS (LAST 14 DAYS)

Former Nogales High School shortstop Demetrio Crisantes, who was selected in seventh round (198) of the 2022 MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks, was promoted Monday to Single-A Visalia (Calif.) after excelling with the club’s rookie team in the Arizona Complex League in the Phoenix area. He batted .355 with seven doubles, five triples, home run, 10 stolen bases and 20 RBIs in the ACL. Crisantes was recruited to Arizona by Chip Hale out of Nogales but decided to sign with the Diamondbacks for an estimated $250,000. Crisantes led the Apaches to a 31-4 record his senior year with a second-place finish in the state playoffs while batting .485 with 26 RBIs, 15 doubles, four triples and seven home runs (Arizona Diamondbacks photo)

Jared Oliva – IL-7 Injured (Seattle Mariners)

Tuesday, June 11
Spencer Packard – Assigned to Tacoma Rainiers (AAA) (Seattle Mariners)

Cesar Salazar – Recalled from from Sugar Land Space Cowboys (AAA) (Houston Astros)

Sunday, June 9
Donny Sands – Released by Giants. The 28-year-old Salpointe graduate signed a minor-league deal with the club in mid-May after the Tigers released him at the end of spring training. The Yankees selected Sands in the eighth round of the 2015 draft, and he spent the next seven seasons in their system before the Yankees traded him to the Phillies ahead of the 2022 campaign. Sands made his MLB debut with Philadelphia the following September. He appeared in three games as a pinch-hitter and caught two innings behind the plate that season, the extent of his big-league career. The Phillies traded him to the Tigers during the 2022-23 offseason. Sands’ background of being a homeless teen while at Salpointe made national news. This occurred after his father died of a heart attack and his mom Alma had to move to her native Mexico to find employment.

Donny Sands batted .450 as a senior at Salpointe in 2015

Thursday, June 6
Branden Boissiere – IL-60 Injured/arm (Washington Nationals)
