Around the league...

In response, the MLBPA released a statement in support of their decision.

  • After fifteen years, Matthew Berry is leaving ESPN, and released a statement on the matter.

  • The 2022 All-Star Game jerseys were revealed, and in my opinion are a significant improvement over last year’s.

  • Updates were given on some recent Rays injuries, including that of Wander Franco.

And it looks like Tampa Bay’s bad luck in that regard continue as Josh Fleming is likely headed to the IL as well.

  • Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds, often discussed lately as a potential trade target for many teams, is heading to the 10-day IL.

  • The Rangers also did some roster shuffling due to some injuries.

  • The Phillies are also experiencing roster shuffling, but instead of injury, it’s due to the unvaccinated status of several of their players as they prepare for a series in Toronto.

Bren’s pick...
