Around the league...
- David O’Brien at The Athletic wrote about the addition of Robinson Canó in Atlanta, which the team hopes will be beneficial for the squad in multiple ways. ($)
- The Blue Jays made the shocking decision to fire manager Charlie Montoyo even though the team currently holds a playoff spot. Montoyo had reportedly lost the trust of the players.
- The Baseball Prospectus staff released an update to their top 50 prospects.
- A whopping 10 players for the Kansas City Royals will not make the trip to Toronto because they are unvaccinated. This is embarrassing for a team that pretends it is interested in winning.
- Heading into the 2022 MLB Draft, Kumar Rocker remains a major draft day mystery. Tim Keown at ESPN has the story.
- Luis Severino was pulled from yesterday’s game. It doesn’t look good for the oft-injured starter.
Luis Severino has "right shoulder tightness,' Yankees announce. He will see the team doctor and get an MRI tomorrow.— Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) July 14, 2022
