Mike Trout simply brutalized the Mariners over the weekend. Meanwhile, Edgar Quero continues his hot hitting down in Inland Empire. The Trash Pandas won the first half of the season in their division. The good news just comes in bunches.
The Twins traded utility player Daniel Robertson to the Phillies for cash considerations. The Tigers designated right-hander Drew Hutchinson for assignment. This is because the major league teams can no longer carry more than 13 pitchers on the 26 man roster. Similarly, the Mariners designated Sergio Romo and Roenis Elias for assignment and the Rays designated Chris Mazza for assignment. The Red Sox designated James Norwood for assignment.
The Dodgers are interested in finding a right handed platoon bat for right field now that Mookie Betts is injured. Should we dangle Jo Adell out there? It looks like they want to do a deal on the cheap.
Here are some thrills and spills from the College World Series. Keep your eye on the ball. They are serving beer at travel ball games. What could go wrong? Heads up camera dude! Heads up pitcher dude!
