Shohei Ohtani is good. Joc Pederson is bad. The Boston Red Sox are very bad, or else very good. Angel Hernandez apparently only got 83.2% of his calls right behind the plate Tuesday. The Nationals and Mets will make up the three games they missed by playing a game on what had been a mutual day off and playing two split doubleheaders.

And Now For The Injuries
James Paxton is on the ten day injured list with a left forearm strain. The injury bug also befell the Oakland Athletics as Trevor Rosenthal may need thoracic outlet surgery. The Padres do not believe Fernando Tatis Jr. will need surgery. They think he will be able to play again after his stint on the ten day injured list. Mookie Betts has back stiffness and was held out of Wednesday’s game as a result. Meanwhile Aaron Judge was held out of Wednesday’s game versus the Orioles because of general soreness to his side. I traded Jo Adell for Mike Soroka in my “If I were Perry Minasian” piece. It’s a good thing I’m not Perry Minasian.
