MLB: Home Run Derby Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning friends! Here’s what we’ve got going on in baseball on this day of the MLB All-Star Game.

In Mariners news...

  • Down in Tacoma...
  • Mariners minor leaguers continue to rack up the hardware.
  • Who does Julio Rodríguez credit for his strong 2021 campaign so far? Ichiro. Kyle Glaser at Baseball America has the story. (FREE)
  • Well, this is a bummer.
  • The good news is that Yusei Kikuchi is back from the injured list as the squad makes a flurry of roster moves.

Around the league...

  • Pete Alonso won yesterday’s Home Run Derby, giving him back-to-back wins and almost tripling his salary for the season.
  • The state of baseball in Cleveland is at something of a crossroads with the organization’s ownership, location, and team name all up in the air going forward. The Athletic has the latest. ($)
  • This reunion sure ended quickly.
  • Baseball has seen a significant increase in viewership this season. Though I’d be more curious to see its numbers measured against the 2019 campaign.
  • Not only did Shohei Ohtani compete as the No. 1 seed in the Home Run Derby, he will also toe the rubber for the American League while batting leadoff for the Junior Circuit. Max Scherzer will start for the National League.
  • Major League Baseball made a 10-year commitment to The Players Alliance in the hopes of improving Black representation in baseball.
