Apparently Jo Adell’s defense is four outs below average to this point, which is tied for second worst among outfielders. Let’s hope he figures this out at Salt Lake City. How are the pitchers doing that the Angels drafted last year? Bleacher Report went way out on a limb and predicted Mike Trout would make the All Star Team. Seriously though, they predicted Taylor Ward for the starting All Star Team but snubbed Shohei Ohtani altogether. They also suggested Taylor Ward was a contender for the AL MVP award.
Trevor May has a stress reaction in his humerus and will be shut down for four weeks. Miguel Sano will have knee surgery although the Twins expect him back later this season. Jose Altuve fouled a pitch straight into his own package and had to leave the game. Speaking of leaving the game, Madison Bumgarner was ejected during the course of a routine sticky stuff inspection, although it looks like he took exception to something the umpire said or did and went ballistic over it.
