The Angels promoted Jo Adell. Maria Torres reports that Shohei Ohtani will not be going on the injured list, although he will not pitch for weeks due to a grade 1-2 strain of the flexor pronator mass. He will accompany the Angels to Seattle.
MLB has canceled the “Field of Dreams Game.” The Cardinals will not be traveling to their series with Detroit. At least a couple of the Cardinals went to a casino recently and now there are 13 positives counting both players and staff. Go figure. So far, none of the 13 who tested positive require hospitalization. Five of them are asymptomatic. John Mozeliak sees no reason to believe the story about Cardinals going to a casino.
The Phillies resumed their season last night, but they are way behind schedule. It looks like there are some 7 inning double headers in their future. Lots of roster shuffling is going on in the Marlins organization. Derek Jeter insists that a couple of Marlins just went out for coffee or to pick up their clothes and there was no salacious activity leading to all the coronavirus positives. Glad we cleared that up. It was “just a false sense of security.”
Yoenis Cespedes opted out in kind of a passive aggressive manner. This article concerns “Ice cold players already in danger of getting benched.” Amazingly, there are no Angels in the list. Bregman, Altuve, and Springer still can’t seem to put it together.
