Mike Trout Los Angeles Angels

While Bryce Harper...

Will play in his 1,000 career game tonight against the Jays.

The stats show he has one of the top 5 careers all-time for players in their first 1,000 games.

On pace for the best season in baseball history, per Jeff Passan at Yahoo! sports, ahead of Babe Ruth.

If he retired today...he still should be in the HOF, even at 26 years old.

Giancarlo Stanton New York Yankees

Hits an 0-2 pitch 450 feet with a launch angle of maybe 10 to end the game in the Bronx.

I saw it live -- just, the count was 0-2 when I clicked over from the game in Colorado -- and just hope the Mariners aren't dead.

The whole time I was in Washington State, the Seattle Times was running some variation of ANOTHER LATE RALLY at the top of the front page.

I'm glad I won't be buying the paper tomorrow.

Chris Rusin Colorado Rockies

The Rockies' bullpen ERA is 5.75, the worst in the majors.

That's bad enough.

According to Keith Hernandez (after Rusin failed to record an out trying to protect a one-run lead), Rockies relievers have allowed 40 percent of inherited runners to score.

That's mind-blowing.

I think Tom Henke, the Canada Goose, wore glasses.  

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed
Isiah Kiner-Falefa Texas Rangers

Making his first major league start behind the plate tonite… naturally the pitcher he gets to catch is Austin Bibens-Dirkx...Try saying that battery combo 3 times last.

Sam Dyson San Francisco Giants

I don't think you can do worse and still get a Hold in the 9th inning, right?

Gave up 4 hits and 2 runs in 2/3 of an IP ... good for a Hold ... technically, I s'pose ...

Reyes Moronta San Francisco Giants

Don't ya hate it when some guy you've NEVER heard of gets a Save?

Happened today ... turns out I shoulda heard of him ... my bad ... even though it looks like closemonkey has never heard of him either :-)

Sam Dyson takes over as Giants closer

June 20, 2018

San Francisco Giants — On Tuesday afternoon, Bruce Bochy said that Tony Watson and Sam Dyson will split closing duties after Hunter Strickland broke his pitching hand. Bochy also wanted to give Watson Tuesday night off, which led to Dyson converting the first post-Strickland save chance. After the game, Bochy committed to using Dyson as his closer. Also worth watching in the Giants’ bullpen is Will Smith. The lefty lowered his ERA to 0.90 in 1.1 IP last night and should see more high-leverage work.

Updated hierarchy: Dyson | Watson | Melancon.

I think he does hold the all time saves record among pitchers that wore eyeglasses on the mound.

Teke was the man. Hard to describe to today's youth.

Keith Cromer Slyke

We don't have G/L/F for him but we do have ground out/air out ratio. His career was 2.06/1 while the league average was 1.08/1.

Seranthony Dominguez Philadelphia Phillies

Last night's was the top of the 9th at home in a tie game.

Max Muncy Los Angeles Dodgers

He plays all over the place -- 2B, 1B, Lf, 3B, 1B in yesterday's double-header -- and it shouldn't be too surprising if he doesn't play anywhere very well. Just missed a throw in the dirt at first that Bellinger would have easily picked.

Here it is. Tremendous career BABIP. Wish we had his G/L/F; assume it's heavily weighted toward G.

C.J. Cron Tampa Bay Rays

Launched HR number 16 last night. I saw this coming back in February from a power perspective...good for Cron. But the K/BB and BA lead to a below average season. He needs to stop swinging for the fences, like everyone else is doing.On his way to a typical Rob Deer season. He is better than that.

Keith Cromer Slyke
Jose Ramirez Cleveland Indians

Also stole a base today, so it's one fewer.

Jeimer Candelario Detroit Tigers

Has been in a bit of slump. But did hit HR #11 today. Hoping he heats up when the weather gets warmer.

Keith Cromer Slyke
Kent Tekulve Cincinnati Reds

Can we get his career scan, Alex?

See Candelaria thread.

Keith Cromer Slyke
Jose Ramirez Cleveland Indians

Would be the leading AL MVP candidate if not for Trout.

Keith Cromer Slyke

22 homers on June 20 -- are you kidding me?

He has two fewer steals than Altuve.
