Around The MLB

The Rays are going the opposite way of the Diamondbacks, the Padres have some swag chain and Scott Kazmir goes 4 innings for 1 run ball for the San Francisco Giants. Giants can throw whatever TBD out there and he’ll give them a chance.

[MLB Trade Rumors] Injury updates

Dodgers are slowly getting back to their “normal” lineup, although they are taking things easy with Mookie Betts these days. However, they had to place Jimmy Nelson on the 10-day IL. Padres activated Will Myers, who always has D-Backs for lunch. Former Padre Franmil Reyes hit the 10-day IL though, but the most disappointing news came out of St. Louis, where the Cardinals had to place Miles Mikolas on the 10-day IL due to forearm tightness. Bad news for the pitcher who returned to the mound after 19 months without a serious baseball game.

A couple of prospects got permission from their teams to participate as well: Joe Ryan (Tampa Bay) and Simeon Woods Richardson (Blue Jays).

Mike Scioscia will have to drop two within a week to bring the squad to 26.
