- Brian McCann is going to the DL with an oblique strain. These generally aren’t good and players usually seem to miss a month with them. On the plus side for Atlanta, David Ross isn’t a horrible backup. With the lack of depth at catcher, he might be an appropriate add.
- Josh Johnson appears to be out the rest of the season. Lets hope the comenter in one of my first posts didn’t listen to me when I advised it might be ok to get him in a deal if he had the DL spot available.
- CC Sabathia was either awesome or average when he struck out 14 batters and gave up 1 hit last night in 7 IP. Awesome because that is quite a performance. Average because it came against the Mariners who lost their 17th straight game.
- Vance Worley threw a complete game fanning 5 and giving up 2 runs on 3 hits. He is long gone in NL only and someone to pick up in mixers now too. He is only owned in 57% of leagues, yet he is just outside the top 100 players. “Inconceivable!”
- Lance Berkman is gonna have an MRI on his shoulder. He is having some rotator cuff issues and might be getting an anti-inflammatory injection. He will probably miss the next couple of games.
- David Ortiz was 4/5 last night with 3 doubles and 5 RBI. He is 10-for-21 since his suspension.
- Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the White Sox have made Edwin Jackson, John Danks and Gavin Floyd all available. If Danks gets traded, I would make a move to try and pick him up. He would have to get more W’s on a contender with the way he has been pitching. Jon Heyman speculates further that if the Blue Jays get EJax, they will try and flip him to the Cardinals.
- Taken from a series of twitter posts from Atlanta Journal Constitution writer David O’brien about Carlos Beltran: “While McCann injury has to add some urgency to #Braves‘ need for another bat via trade, Beltran didn’t sound likely from conversation that I had with Scott Boras last night. Not that agent knows all details in a trade situation, but he indicated other teams were more serious suitors for Beltran, who has full trade-veto rights and wants to go to team that will help him on a couple of fronts. Beltran obviously wants to win World Series, and putting up lot more power numbers along the way before free agency is also a factor. Also, Beltran prefers to play RF, doesn’t want to DH. So that narrows the field. #Braves need him, but don’t seem like best fit, is my take” My take? Beltran is going to the Phillies. They play in a little league size park so he can get his power numbers up, and I’m a Mets fan, so him being traded to the Phillies would be the appropriate thing to do to me.
- Jayson Stark says the Cubs will have trouble trading anyone not named Kosuke Fukudome
- Take long enough to write an article and a trade happens during the process. Edwin Jackson is now a Blue Jay. Jason Frasor and prospect Zack Stewart are the return pieces. Mark Teahen was sent to Toronto with E Jax. NL-only leagues take note, Colby Rasmus may soon be unavailable…
- Logan Morrisonwas attacked by a mantis
Update:E Jax is now a Cardinal and Rasmus is a BlueJay, details here
