TORONTO - When the Blue Jays and Braves meet for four games next week, two in Toronto and two in Dixie, fans in a small Alabama town will be tuned intently to their television sets. Anyone with the Rasmus last name in Phenix City will be celebrating moments a lifetime in the making. Brothers Colby and Cory, the Blue Jays centerfielder and the pitcher recently recalled by the Braves, will be in opposite big league dugouts for the first time. Colby found out about Corys promotion before Saturdays game in New York. "It was great to hear that," Rasmus told TSN.ca. "Hes been pitching well this year. Hes had a little bit of a tough road battling some injuries and some shoulder surgeries and things like that. Man, (Saturday) I was about ready to jump out of my skin. I didnt know what to do with myself. It was just a great day." The two have always been close – about 15 months apart in age. Colby is 26, Cory is 25. There are four Rasmus boys and the brotherly competition began informally at a young age. "Weve put in a lot of time," said Rasmus. "From the time we could walk, we were playing baseball out in the yard." Eventually a conversation happened between father, Tony, and the two boys that set the course for their professional careers and the face-to-face which could happen next week. "At 10 years old, my dad sat us both down and asked us if we wanted to make it to the big leagues and he was going to push us in every way he knew how," said Rasmus. "It paid off." Both were first round draft picks, Colby in 2005 to the Cardinals and Cory a year later to the Braves. Another brother, Casey, 23, plays A ball in St. Louis system. While Colby made his major league debut on April 7, 2009 with St. Louis and hasnt returned to the minors, Corys road has been injury-plagued and far less certain. A flamethrower whose fastball consistently read in the mid-to-high 90s – and occasionally touch 100 mph – he was beset by shoulder tendinitis in 2006, his first pro season, and was shut down after only three appearances with the Gulf Coast League Braves. Cory missed all of 2007 and most of 2008. He had more injury trouble in 2011 but bounced back in 2012 with a 3.68 ERA in 50 appearances for Atlantas Double-A affiliate in Mississippi. So far this season, Cory Rasmus has seven saves and a 0.93 ERA in 19 outings for Triple-A Gwinnett of the International League. Colby Rasmus is still working on the details of next weeks series. Hes still not sure who will make the trek north for the Toronto portion of the Blue Jays-Braves series. There will be dozens of family and friends come Wednesday in Atlanta, about a 90-minute drive from Phenix City. Itll be a sweet payoff for the Rasmus brothers and their parents, both schoolteachers, who sacrificed a significant portion of their annual income to allow their kids to chase the baseball dream. "We just worked our butts off pretty much," said Colby. "Countless hours in the gym working out. We spent more than enough time on the baseball field practicing, playing, traveling. My parents spent all their money that they had pretty much on traveling to go here and there and for Christmas, we didnt hardly get any presents or anything because they were putting all that money toward helping us with baseball." Romeros struggles continue Ricky Romero made his third start for Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday. He allowed one run and walked only two through the first five innings but it was in the sixth that Romeros outing fell apart. He walked four straight Charlotte Knights hitters before being taken out of the game. Romeros final line: 5IP (plus four batters in the sixth,) four earned runs on four hits, six walks and two strikeouts. Johnson making progress Right-hander Josh Johnson, rehabbing from triceps inflammation, reported good health after Monday nights start for Single-A Dunedin. Of the nine outs Johnson recorded, five were strikeouts. Hes scheduled to pitch again on Saturday and manager John Gibbons says he expects Johnson will make a third rehab appearance, in the middle of next week, before thought is given to bringing him back to the Blue Jays.

NEW YORK -- For the past few days, the New York Mets have been one of the teams linked to Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who is considered the top player available before the Aug. 1 trade deadline. But its the Colorado Rockies who have looked like the more legitimate contender this weekend at Citi Field.The Rockies will look to complete a season sweep of the Mets on Sunday when the two teams square off at 1:10 p.m. ET. Colorado won the third game of the four-game series on Saturday when left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa posted his 100th career victory by allowing two runs in six innings in a 7-2 rout.The Rockies (52-52), who are .500 this late in the season for the first time since 2010, have won five straight and nine of 10. They have the best record in baseball (14-6) since the All-Star break.Colorado, which has not reached the playoffs since 2009, is four games behind the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the National Leagues second wild card.Were jelling as a team right now, said rookie Rockies outfielder David Dahl, whose two-run homer in the third inning on Saturday night gave Colorado the lead for good. Everyones playing really well. Just got to keep that attitude every single day, that we can go out and win.The Mets (53-50) need a reminder of that after losing four straight and five of six. The skid has dropped New York, the defending NL champion, 2 1/2 games behind the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals and 7 1/2 games behind thhe NL East-leading Washington Nationals.ddddddddddddRight now, weve got to win the next three here, said Mets manager Terry Collins, referring to the final three games of a nine-game homestand. The next goal is to come out (Sunday) and play a good game. Weve still got to come here every day and grind it out.The Mets likely absorbed another loss late Saturday night when it was reported the Brewers and Cleveland Indians reached agreement on a trade that would send Lucroy to the Indians. who have the best record in the American League.Right-hander Noah Syndergaard will attempt to stop the skid for the Mets when he opposes Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis. Syndergaard is winless in his last three starts despite producing a 2.76 ERA during that span. He won his lone career start against the Rockies last Aug. 13 when he allowed three runs in seven innings in the Mets 12-3 victory.Bettis has won three straight decisions and has produced a quality start in four consecutive outings, a stretch in which hes 3-0 with a 2.77 ERA. He has a 7.71 ERA in two career appearances (one start) against the Mets.With a win, the Rockies will sweep the season series with the Mets for the first time in franchise history. Colorado won all three games at Coors Field from May 13 to May 15.A sweep would also flip the script from last season when the Mets swept the Rockies 7-0.
