Actually the second at bat. Cutch was on first. Segura popped up to 2nd but seemed to slip getting out of the box. 2nd baseman let the ball drop, threw Segura out by plenty and then Cutch hurt the knee just before getting tagged out for the DP. Looks like they are calling it a sprain now and Andrew is asking for prayers.Jay Bruce in uniform for PHI tonight, and Andrew McCutchen got hurt on the first AB of the game, had to be helped off with a knee issue after getting in a rundown. So Bruce is in the game quickly...
Back in the real world, NY is already at $229M, so if they give Keuchel the pro-rated $18M he is supposedly asking for, they will be close enough to the $246M level that Cashman will have little flexibility going into the July deadline, unless he can send Ellsbury somewhere with accompanying talent for someone to swallow his deal and get it off NY's books.Because of course they are. Kimbrel too, I'm sure.
I am really starting to hate this season.
You should start an "Unusual plays" threadAstros @ Mariners.
Houston has runners at first and third, one out. Slow ground ball to short; shortstop throws home to get the runner ... only the catcher is headed to first base to back up a potential double play.
Really on the catcher, because it would have been an impossible DP to turn and the shortstop did the right thing trying to cut off the run
“The @Marlins entered today as the lowest-scoring team in MLB, but tonight they scored 11 runs in the 5th.Miami scored 11 in the 5th in that game. Brewers' park is a hitter's park, but that's insane for the Marlins.
I love stuff like this.“The @Marlins entered today as the lowest-scoring team in MLB, but tonight they scored 11 runs in the 5th.
That's the biggest inning by a team that entered the day last in the majors in runs per game in June or later since the Boston Bees had an 11-run first inning on 8/25/1936.”
...and in his next at-bat he launches one deep into the SRO area to left. He's so hot they're using him as the DH today, because they can't afford to take his bat out of the lineup. I have to admit, I thought the Yan Gomes trade was a terrible salary dump, but he's struggled with Washington, while Jefry Rodriguez was at least a valuable innings eater for a month in Cleveland's rotation, and Daniel Johnson (marginal outfield prospect in the deal) is off to a hot start in AAA.Roberto Perez -- yes, the Tribe catcher who hit .168 with 2 home runs last year -- just missed homering in his 4th straight game, hitting a double about 18'11" off the 19 ft. wall in left-center.
