This 12 year old hits a lot of homers and can pitch with either arm. He wants to be greater than Shohei Ohtani.
Brandon Drury is appealing his one game suspension. David Fletcher is actually not on the injured list. It turns out it is the bereavement list.
Lance McCullers Jr.’s season is over due to his flexor tendon surgery. Mitch Haniger is also having forearm surgery. Vinnie Pasquantino went for shoulder surgery instead. Austin Voth just went on the 15 day IL with right elbow discomfort. Jesse Chavez got hit in the shin by a comebacker, but X-rays were negative. He is getting some other tests. Yordan Alvarez is out for four to six weeks.
Two Mets relievers are now available. They released Tommy Hunter and outrighted Steven Nogosek. Nogosek elected free agency. Mets reliever Drew Smith got himself kicked out of a game for sticky stuff before he had even thrown a pitch. Naturally, he’s facing a ten game suspension.
The Rangers just designated catcher Sandy Leon for assignment. They sent Owen White back down to double-A. The Pirates selected the contract of Osvaldo Bido, who is starting their game against the Cubs today. The Twins acquired Taylor Floyd from the Brewers.
