Around the league...
- Good or terrible news for Fernando Tatis Jr., considering the source.
- Brewers 2B Kolten Wong hit the 10-day IL with an oblique injury, one of several soft tissue injuries common at the season’s outset.
- According to Peter Gammons, former Mets and current Athletics INF Jed Lowrie was dissuaded from getting knee surgery by New York while on their roster.
- When you throw a no-hitter for your hometown team, sometimes there are extra fun perks.
#Padres fans flocked to @Caffe_Adesso in Alpine, which is owned by Joe Musgrove's family, to celebrate and support Musgrove's no-hitter. I went out there too and spoke with a whole bunch of them, which you can watch in this video: https://t.co/PJxbPpg3fo— Annie Heilbrunn (@annieheilbrunn) April 11, 2021
- Veteran RHP Julio Teheran is being placed on the 10-day IL with an ominous right shoulder strain, bad news for the Tigers starter.
- While he’s dodged a broken bone, Mets UTIL J.D. Davis will be placed on the 10-day IL as well with a left hand contusion.
- Forearm tightness is always ominous, but it sounds like Rays RHP Chris Archer may have something less serious like tendonitis after leaving Saturday’s game early.
- The Angels have lost one of their big offseason additions to the 10-day IL.

- Very neat moment here with Vladito.
- Come for the dad’s hilarious reaction to his son missing the ball, stay for a lovely exchange between the kid and a Braves fan.
- Can’t say Jazz Chisholm is short on confidence.
jazz calling degrom's fastball "a little light" after hitting this dinger gives me a contact high https://t.co/0SrdRxy3Yd— Zach Buchanan (@ZHBuchanan) April 11, 2021
- Alex Rodriguez is pairing with former Walmart CEO Marc Lore to purchase the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA, after A-Rod’s group came up short on attempting to purchase the New York Mets recently.
- In a game where he clobbered a pair of dingers, a fitting bit of Juan Soto dubiousness.
