Around MLB:

One big warning to each MLB team before free agency, trade season.

...beware. Because navigating the hot stove season can be perilous, we’ve issued a few words of warning for each of MLB’s 30 teams. In essence, these cover how contenders and pretenders should or shouldn’t show restraint on the free-agent and trade markets.

We’ll go in alphabetical order by city.

Relax Dodger fans, Joe Buck is not the problem.

The play-by-play man acknowledged the Dodgers’ abilities. He pointed out their weak spots. What else do you want?

D-back’s News:

D-backs claim Tiger’s pitcher Artie Lewicki off waivers.

Drafted in the eighth round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the Tigers, Lewicki played in 25 games between the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens and Detroit in 2018. The right-hander recently underwent Tommy John surgery in August, his second such procedure.

Due to the timing of the surgery, it’s likely Lewicki will miss the 2019 season. What the hell, bro?

Next wave of D-backs prospects could be their best in years.

“I think the Diamondbacks have a better system than people think,” a scout with an American League club said. “Most scouts don’t cover short-season and rookie ball, so some of their best guys weren’t seen by those guys. If some of these guys continue to develop, the organization will definitely move up.”

Off topic Snake story:

Snake eats pingpong ball, is saved by Veterinarian.

Who has caused this?

The snake was anesthetized and went under the knife. The surgery took about 20 minutes.
