The Red Sox called up top prospect Michael Chavis on Friday to shore up their infield. Boston was thin at the positions with Dustin Pedroia, Eduardo Nuñez, and Brock Holt unavailable due to injury. Tzu-Wei Lin, who was also called up Friday from Triple-A Pawtucket, will play regularly at second base, according to Alex Cora. The Red Sox manager noted Chavis was not quite ready for second base, but the team wants his bat in the lineup and will insert him at first and third base. Chavis was batting .250 in Pawtucket with four home runs and a .954 OPS. In his first tweet after the Red Sox drafted him as an 18-year-old out of high school, he wrote, “First 11:11 tweet as part of the Boston Red Sox family!” After getting the call up from the major league club he took to Twitter again, writing, “Let me tell you how many times I prayed for this at 11:11…” Here’s what you need to know about the new Red Sox corner infielder: Chavis was suspended 80 games … [Read more...] about 3 things to know about newly promoted Red Sox infielder Michael Chavis

By Swati Pandey and Vatsal Srivastava SYDNEY/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - New Zealand's central bank held interest rates on Thursday after the Federal Reserve delivered another widely anticipated hike, but trade deficit-laden Indonesia and the Philippines are expected to at least match the United States later in the day. In a statement that marked the end of the era of "accommodative" monetary policy, Fed policymakers lifted the rates by 25 basis points (bps) to 2.00-2.25 percent.

Share Tweet Plus One Pin It Email Print By: Mukesh Chand August 14, 2018 11:13 am Change Font Size The financial sector of the country is a major contributor towards the growth of the country. The sector comprises public sector banks (PSUs), commercial banks, insurance companies, Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), mutual funds, pension funds etc. The 17th Financial Stability Report (FSR)[i] released by RBI in June has highlighted that the stress in the banking sector continues as gross non-performing advances (GNPA) ratio rises further. Profitability of SCB[ii]s declined, partly reflecting increased provisioning. Credit growth of SCBs picked up during 2017-18 notwithstanding sluggish deposit growth. Macro-stress tests indicate that under the baseline scenario of current macroeconomic outlook, SCBs’ GNPA ratio may rise from 11.6 percent in March 2018 to 12.2 percent by March 2019. The system-level capital to risk-weighted assets ratio (CRAR) may come … [Read more...] about Towards Loan Market Structure: More Liquidity & Relief From Stressed Assets For Banks?
