The Diamondbacks catcher Carson Kelly is on the 10 day IL with a fractured wrist he sustained after being hit by a Walker Buehler pitch. His whole season might be in jeopardy.
It’s not a good day for catchers. The Tigers released Wilson Ramos.
Supposedly the umpires are going to err on the side of caution when enforcing the sticky substances ban. They will inspect pitchers after they leave the game. Might as well leave those guys in there longer, Joe.

Fernando Tatis Jr. left a game early with what appears to be another shoulder injury.
At least three teams expect to disregard the gentleman’s agreement among managers about not calling for the opposing pitcher to be checked for foreign substances. What do you think? Will Joe Maddon do this?
Alek Manoah rather obviously plunked an Oriole and then got mad when he was ejected. Benches cleared. Vlad Guerrero Jr. personally eighty-sixed Freddy Galvis out of the scrum.
