Jose Leclerc Texas Rangers

Jose Leclerc (P) TEX - Jul. 29

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=746029

Leclerc missed out on Wednesday's save opportunity against the Diamondbacks after experiencing right shoulder tightness while warming up, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 26-year-old was expected to have a chance to earn his second save of the season, but his shoulder tightened up and Nick Goody was called upon instead. Leclerc should be considered day-to-day until the team has more information on the injury. He'll be reevaluated on Thursday's scheduled off day.

Nick Goody (P) TEX - Jul. 29

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=746049

Goody recorded the save Wednesday by retiring the Diamondbacks in order with one strikeout.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Closer Jose Leclerc was warming up for the save opportunity, but his shoulder tightened up and Goody was then called upon. If Leclerc lands on the injured list it seems unlikely Goody operates as the fill-in closer given Wednesday was his first career save, but it was a solid outing to show his potential for a high-leverage role.

Michael Fiers Oakland Athletics

Astros vs A's next weekend, Aug 7-9, and Fiers likely to start one of the games.  Is there a hitting equivalent of a Joe Kelly?  There is in slow pitch softball.

Joe Jimenez Detroit Tigers

It's guaranteed: when the Tigers play the Royals, someone has to win. If it's close, someone gets the save.

Jimenez got the save tonight. He made it look easy.

Most surprising slow start?  I think so ... not a bad ISO, I s'pose ...

Joe Kelly Los Angeles Dodgers

Manfred warned everyone that there would be repercussions. Joe Kelly chose to not believe him. Joe Kelly got what he deserved for being stupid. Had a punch been thrown, I'd be willing to bet the suspensions would have been at least 30 games, maybe the balance of the season.

And announces his return with a two-run shot!

Back in the lineup along with Nick Senzel

Joe Kelly Los Angeles Dodgers

Exactly, BeanCounter.

Twitter is on fire. Best suggestion. Have Kelly appeal the decision. Start Joe Kelly tonight.

So, you can cheat, win a World Series & get no punishment. If you retaliate, you get suspended for 13% of the season.

So much for assuming opt-out decisions were irrevocable.

Cristian Javier Houston Astros

Yusmeiro Petit’s Invisiball ... have we (not? :-)) seen this before?

Howard Lynch LynchMob

Javier could also be used as a starter and will be. He makes his MLB debut this evening. I'm looking forward to seeing how that "invisiball" works against the Dodgers.

Outstanding piece of writing and perspective.

Nate Pearson Toronto Blue Jays
Pearson makes his debut this evening against the Nats and Max Scherzer. He's likely going to be limited to 70 or so pitches. A two-start week to begin August could be just what Peter and I need in the Marshalls League!

Joe Kelly Los Angeles Dodgers

Unlikely it's finished.  If Verlander were playing, you know he'd retaliate. I wonder if any Astro will?

Thx for link ... that is must read ...

Talk about hubris.

The Blue Jays will use Buffalo, where their Class AAA affiliate plays, as their home base starting Aug. 11, and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York suggested during his daily briefing on Tuesday that M.L.B. could stage all its games in the state. M.L.B. decided against holding its season in a single contained area this season, but Cuomo extended his offer anyway. 

“New York State could host any Major League Baseball game that any team wants to play,” Cuomo said. “New York State has one of the lowest infection rates in the U.S.”

I think he finished it rather than started it :-)
