Around the league...
- Well, the Mets finally got their guy: the organization announced the hiring of David Stearns as the team’s new General Manager.
- After being demoted to the minors once again, Alek Manoah is unlikely to pitch again this season per reports.
- The Padres have placed left-hander Rich Hill on waivers, hoping to save a few bucks by seeing if a contending team is in sore enough need for pitching depth.
- Are they going to be forced to give Nick Castellanos a Gold Glove?
