And if you are HBP it is a dead ball, even when a swinging or taken strike (body part hanging over the plate).

Rule 6.05(e) says a batter is out if he swings at a third strike and is hit by the pitch.

Isn't it a strikeout wild pitch? Why is he called back from first?

Win No. 5 yesterday in Cleveland. Hasn't lost a game since last August (18 starts).

The start of the game was delayed almost three hours by the threat of lightning.

Signed a two-year deal with the Rays for $30 million.

Keith Law approves.

... The Rays entered this offseason with Snell as a definite starter, and Jake Faria and Tyler Glasnow as tentative starters, in addition to the guys they used or might use
as openers. Brent Honeywell, who had Tommy John surgery, should return
this summer, but counting on him for more than a half season is probably
optimistic, and he could need time to regain his command and control.
They had an acute need for a regular starter, even one who would go just
twice through the order...

Peter and I approve. In late October, as the deadline approached for handing in our freeze list for the November draft in the XFL, Charlie was talking about retiring.

There would be no refund on our $17 investment but we gambled a real team would bid enough to change his mind.
