Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith Debut. What else is in store for New York?
2017 first overall pick goes 4-for-5 for Cedar Rapids Kernels
...Sometime before: Hamels blocks potential deal to Houston Astros...
...The day before: Lucroy vetoes completed deal to Cleveland Indians...
The trade made perfect sense for the Tigers, but an untimely market crushed their return. There is a prize to be reaped out of Lugo and potentially the others, but if not then it appears Detroit went to dah-well one too many times.
...they addressed the starting pitching circus with the low-cost acquisition of Jeremy Hellickson, who has seemingly been on the block since he was acquired by Philly at the end of 2015.
Jay’s frame plus quirky delivery draws similarities to a left-handed Trevor Bauer, whose career was much maligned out of the gates due to his unique overall framework
#Article9 for me here at Minor League Ball was a piece on how horribly it looked like the Jonathan Lucroy trade was turning out for the Texas Rangers.
Unfortunately, it’s gotten even worse since then.
What Have You Done For Me Lately?
Prospects are a cautionary tale. The tale of Profar/Price Vs. Moncada/Sale is one to always remember.

It’s really a shame, too, because on top of the expected success of Christian Yelich, they’re receiving breakout years from Marcell Ozuna, J.T. Realmuto, Dee Gordon, Justin Bour and Giancarlo Stanton is looking more like his old self.
“I’m just playing my game. I try to enjoy what I do everyday, that’s it. (The Royals) know what’s going on (up there).”
"...The biggest thing that I was thinking about is that nothing in life is guaranteed, especially in baseball, nothing with baseball is guaranteed, either. So why not take this chance?"
Whatever it is, I just want to help a team win, I want to get to a Major League playoff game, I want to do all that stuff. So whatever it takes to get there.”
A fan of MLB The Show and having already represented his home country of Mexico in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, let’s meet Luis Urias.
A headline that surely has some of you asking “What Do You Mean?” But I assure you, we’re talking baseball here and you won’t be “Sorry” you stuck around.
Upon first glance, everyone looks at batting average and Robert’s isn’t good. At .222, you’d be doing yourself a great disservice to not look beyond that number.
The wonders of summer means that it is also graduating season. I mean, literally speaking, graduations occurred a week or two or three ago but hey, the Milwaukee Brewers are holding their graduation a little later.
Your college-to-pro transition has been extremely smooth. How have you been able to do that?
