Actually Fields just got released, per MLBTR:

https://www.mlbtrade...osh-fields.html

So he's available without a waiver claim or trade necessary.

 

Good stats, but MLBTR's use of "extreme fly ball" pitcher has me concerned. Maybe that doesn't matter with the Twins' OF defense and the division having somewhat hitter neutral parks.

Sign me up, our outfield defense is very good defensively (much better than infield).

A 3.60 FIP in the NL, which probably becomes 4.10'ish in the AL. No thanks. There is a reason a playoff team didn't want him.
Maybe on a non 40 man milb deal for depth at AAA in case of a few injuries, but that'd be the extent of my interest.

Did anyone see the 4 man OF deployed against Harper? You would think he would be able to hit to 3rd base side and still get a double.


What is this, slow pitch softball? #BanTheShift

"Let's go over the ground rules.
You can't leave first until you chug a beer.
Any man scoring has to chug a beer.
Chug a beer at the top of all odd-numbered innings.
And the fourth inning is the beer inning."

Frances Marte of the Astros gets a PED suspension, conveniently while he is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery anyway!

So, I read a yahoo story the other day that noted that Angel Hernandez kicked a manager out of a ST game in the first inning.

The article further noted that CB Bucknor attempted to come between the two to attempt to calm the situation.


Bucknor AND Hernandez on the SAME CREW!?

Somehow, MLB thinks this is a good idea?

Is Joe West the crew chief?

Those three having jobs literally proves how little accountability there is the world.

Talk about blocking the young umpire prospects in the minors!

Trout extension 12 for 430. Shocked he reupped so early. I thought he would see if the Angels would put a winner around him.

I think he sees what Eppling has been doing, which is very, very impressive.

2/$17.5 with an option year to make it 3/$27.5. Sigh... Didn't need him!

Wow, that's quite the team friendly extension! Hopefully the Twins can develop the prospects they got for him and make it a worthwhile trade... but it's looking like a great move for the Astros.
