Matt Chapman will replace Christian Yelich (back injury) in tomorrow’s #HRDerby. pic.twitter.com/bTTe39EeWK— MLB (@MLB) July 7, 2019
Chapman is a great hitter, but this is just poor marketing, MLB. Vogelbach is 100x more endearing than Matt Chapman, and his bombs more majestic. BEEF BOYS forever.
Other, Less Infuriating News:
- RHPMike Wright was outrighted to Tacoma after being DFA’d to make room for Matt Wisler, acquired on the 4th of July because Jerry Dipoto hates holidays;
- RHP Dan Altavilla’s MRI came back and showed no structural damage. He’ll rest and rehab his arm.
