Wander Suero Washington Nationals

This guy has options. If baseball doesn't work out for him he can start his own line of clothing called WanderWear........or start a TV show abt his female alter ego and call it WanderWoman. ;)

Scott Anderson Kansas City Royals

Need Shaun Anderson up from the depths for the Giants.

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Eduardo Escobar Arizona Diamondbacks

For those willing to spend the extra buck ... he's certainly paying off.  He's blowing through his bids before the halfway mark ... and his 40% hard hit ball rate is a 2% bump over last year, and a 10% improvement over his 2014-2017 average.

Phil Ponebshek Texpope
Alex Reyes St. Louis Cardinals

38 K in 27 innings in AAA, but with 5 HR.

John Thomas Roll2
Mike Trout Los Angeles Angels

I think his biggest problem is that while he is is consistently in the top 2-3 players in baseball every year, his improvements are incremental.  He has lowered his K rate this year marginally.  His SLG is at a career high. But, Bellinger and Yellich are new shiny objects.  When you enter Trout's orbit you are the talk of the town.  He's just Trout.

If Trout can straighten out that BABIP, maybe he'll get his OBP up to 500 and start getting some press.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed
Rowdy Tellez Toronto Blue Jays

Two homers yesterday, the second on a bad pitch with an oops swing.

Mike Trout Los Angeles Angels

Suddenly Trout is among the leaders in those retro categories called home runs and RBIs.

Blake Snell Tampa Bay Rays

After being shelled by the Yankees tonight -- two hits, four walks, no strikeouts, six runs in a third of an inning -- Snell has a 10.29 ERA in June (four starts). Strangely, he threw strike one to five of the seven batters he faced. Even stranger, he said afterward, "I'm happy with how I'm pitching, I like the way it feels coming out of my hand."

Gary Sanchez New York Yankees

Homered and doubled, driving in four, as the Yankees beat the Rays again and moved to 22-7 in the division. They've now won their last four games against the Rays, outscoring them 34-9.

Jacob Nottingham Milwaukee Brewers

Jacob Nottingham, 1B, Brewers. Nottingham had four hits in five at-bats for Triple-A San Antonio. He had three singles and blasted a two-run home run in the second inning. His six RBI night was a season-best and the first time he drove in a run across his last seven games.

Brent Rooker Minnesota Twins

Brent Rooker, OF, Twins. Rooker fell a triple short of the cycle for Triple-A Rochester. The cleanup hitter had a single, double and a two-run home run to cap a three RBI night. Minnesota’s No. 6 prospect has a five-game hit streak going with six RBIs during that span.

Alex Patton Alex
Deivi Garcia New York Yankees

Deivi Garcia, RHP, Yankees. Garcia was racking up the strikeouts for Double-A Trenton, fanning 15 batters in just six innings. The righthander allowed just one hit and a walk in his dominating performance. It was the fourth time the Yankees’ No. 6 prospect had struck out double-digit batters in a game, and his second scoreless performance across his last three outings.

Victor Robles Washington Nationals

Hot off the presses.....first time entrant in the 10 HR Club gets the silent treatment. ;)

van wilhoite LVW
Max Scherzer Washington Nationals

Last night.....broke his nose in batting practice

Tonight....7 shutout innings with 10 Ks.

In 9 starts since that wacky one vs the Cards......1.50 ERA.

Pat Corbin Washington Nationals

The couple extra days rest (thanks to a couple Washington rainy nights) seems to have served Corbin well, as following a 1st inning HR to Scott Kingery he breezed through the next 6 with only a dollop of trouble (a beautiful play by Parra in CF saved a run when he scooped a grounder up the middle with his hand and fired a strike to 3rd to throw out Harper going 1st to 3rd).

They got him out after 7 today, with 101 pitches.  Perhaps they are learning.

Phil Ponebshek Texpope
Robert Gsellman New York Mets

That's a "fire the manager" situation.  That's how stupid Callaway's explanation was.

Mike Dean TMU2009
Cal Abrams Chicago White Sox

Nice pro debut for the #6 pick in the 2019 draft by the Padres ... 4-for-4 with an HR out of the leadoff spot for CJ Abrams! (video)

Howard Lynch LynchMob
Whit Merrifield Kansas City Royals

Three knocks, two over the fence, good for six ribbies last night against the Mariners.

Joins the club.

Robert Gsellman New York Mets

New York Mets — Mickey Callaway found a new way to sound like a crazy person on Tuesday, explaining that he went to Robert Gsellman in garbage time to (a) save Jacob deGrom’s ERA somehow, and (b) ensure the team didn’t blow the lead. The Mets bullpen was without Jeurys Familia, who returned to the IL with a recurrent bone spur in his shoulder, but we’d expect even Robinson Cano could have earned two outs before the Braves scored eight.

Hierarchy remains: Diaz | Lugo | Gsellman.
