Hi all. Are you still with us? Hang in there. On Sunday, I saw a guy at the zoo wearing what looked to be a brand new Rendon jersey. The Angels have some of the most daring fans around, I guess. Speaking of which, Anthony Rendon aggravated his previously existing right wrist injury. Jared Walsh says he’s “a hands guy.” (Probably not what you’re thinking.)
Two Angels made the Pipeline Prospect Team of the Week. They were catcher Edgar Quero of the Inland Empire 66ers and right handed pitcher Landon Marceaux of the Tri-City Dust Devils. I wonder if those guys are getting paid.
Astros shortstop Jeremy Pena is on the injured list with left thumb discomfort. The Astros just got two immaculate innings in the same game from two different pitchers against the same three batters. This seems like it must have been rather embarrassing for the Rangers.
Speaking of embarrassing, at least this isn’t a Detroit Tigers site. There’s still that. (The link is about them using three position players to pitch in a 13-0 blowout.)
The Mets might soon get Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom back.
