‘Topes today (July 23)

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Vs. Fresno, 7:05 p.m.

Probable starters: Isotopes RHP Drew Carpenter (2-0, 6.64) vs. Grizzlies LHP Jose De Paula (4-3, 3.91).

Radio: 610 AM

Promotion: Adult fun run

Tuesday: Fresno stopped the Isotopes’ four-game winning streak with a 1-0 victory in a game stopped after five innings due to rain.

The Grizzlies only run was unearned.

Uggla update: There was still no official word Tuesday when infielder Dan Uggla will join Fresno, but it could be today.

The second baseman was signed to a minor league contract by the San Francisco Giants this week after being released by Atlanta. The Giants announced he will play for Fresno.

After the 2010 season, Uggla rejected a four-year, $48 million contract offer from the Marlins and was traded to Atlanta. In 2011, Uggla signed a five-year, $62 million deal with the Braves.

The Braves will continue to pay Uggla $19 million through the 2015 season as part of his guaranteed contract.

Transactions: LHP Paco Rodriguez rejoins the Isotopes after being optioned back from the Los Angeles Dodgers to make room for RHP Josh Beckett.
