Sonny Gray Cincinnati Reds

For a while it seemed Paxton was going the way of Sonny Gray, pitching in the Bronx.

Play Index Spotlight: James Paxton

Wilson Ramos New York Mets

Ramos is 5th in the Mets lineup with an OPS+ of 114 ... and after the slow start since Mid-May he's hit .331/.390/.497.  So obviously, Callaway would like to start him over, say, Thomas Nido and his .549 OPS.

This does not make Thor happy.

James Paxton New York Yankees

Nine starts ago, Paxton was 5-6. Now he's 13-6 after blanking the Red Sox into the 7th. The season series ends with the Yankees winning 14 of 19.

Seth Lugo New York Mets

Six-out save against the Diamondbacks. No hits, no walks, four strikeouts. 21 pitches, 18 for strikes. He must have really been mad after giving up five earned runs in a third of an inning on August 14. He hasn't been scored on since.

Of course I/we remember Randy!

Gavin Lux Los Angeles Dodgers
Michael Lorenzen Cincinnati Reds

Still unlikely to get the two-way designation from MLB. I don't think he's hitting enough in his games in the OF.

You remember Randy Keisler.

From the AP:

CINCINNATI -- A few days after his Ruthian two-way feat, relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen was again the right man in the batter's box for the Cincinnati Reds.

Lorenzen lined a game-ending, pinch-hit double in the ninth inning to help the Reds snap the Arizona Diamondbacks' five-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Sunday.

Lorenzen is the first Cincinnati pitcher with a walk-off hit since Randy Keisler in the 14th inning against Washington on May 24, 2005.

Missed his second Maddox by three pitches.

When he's good, he's very, very good.

Key sentence:

The quick dismissal of Dombrowski in the wake of such success enhanced speculation that something beyond the state of the team fueled ownership’s quick trigger finger.

Michael Pineda Minnesota Twins

Just before the major league trade deadline, I traded Pineda to the Nabobs for Roenis Elias and J.P. Crawford. Two days ago, Walter was quite pleased with the deal. Today he's calling it the trade from hell.
