Do Not Sell My Personal Information
Except for Kwan going on the IL, good news all around.

Tigers lose in 8. (Rain)

KC loses in 10 innings.

Twins finally lose.
 
Manzardo didn’t play today. Possible call up? Also, Schneeman played RF and Valera played CF for Columbus. Interesting to think about possible moves with Kwan out.
 
Valera is the only one who wouldn’t need a roster move. But my bet is actually on Schneeman

Yes, already reported. Manzardo will be in Cleveland tomorrow.

Means Kwan to IL though, so very bittersweet.

But at least they're trying to fill the spot with a good bat
 
Good series win.

After some lousy defense by Bo, we saw great defensive plays from Arias and Laureano.

Clase is pitching both up and down in the zone, making him virtually unhittable and racking up more Ks.

Cookie should have left unscored. His FB had more zip and the secondaries got a lot of whiffs down in the zone, but the problem is that EVERYTHING is down in the zone. He's not willing or capable of changing hitters eye levels. That's what Lively is so good at. Hitters can basically split the zone in half vs Cookie and just try to golf balls down in the zone.

Also, if that's his game, down in the zone and dirt, I'd like Hedges to become his personal catcher. Bo just lacks consistency and has too many mental lapses.

As good as Arias was at SS today, as terrible he was at the plate. Half the Lake County lineup would have put up better ABs, I'm not joking. He added 2 more 3 pitch strikeouts. He now has 10 (TEN !!!!) of them in 73 trips to the plate. Insane. For a guy closing in on 500 PA at the MLB level and getting worse with regular playing time instead of better. Not good.

The defense and versatility will give him more rope. As well as Rocchio's own inconsistencies. But time is running out on Arias with Brito and Schneeman knocking.
 
For a team that can’t hit home runs, we’re somehow creeping close to top10 in the league in home runs
They're 16th and hopefully climbing.

When we slug we win. It should only get better as more sluggers work their way to Cleveland.

I saw them at 13th, but the 9-18 is pretty tightly packed and surely changing inning to inning
 
The day apparently has passed for Manzardo to garner a year of service time...and for the Guards to lose a year of control.

Super Two is up in the air, although likely...if he doesn't get sent down.
