- The Angels reportedly have no plans to shut down Mike Trout as he deals with a calf strain.
- Corbin Burnes tied a major league record with 10 straight strikeouts during a dominant outing on Wednesday.
- The Mets have picked up free agent outfielder Josh Reddick as they try to catch up with the red-hot Phillies.
- Our very own Michael Ajeto made his Baseball Prospectus debut with an analysis of the Padres’ supposed experiment with Fernando Tatis, Jr. in center field. ($)
- I really hope they allow this to happen.
