News & Notes
  • The blues are being sung around the Diamondbacks clubhouse, after Steven Souza Jr.'s woman left him, and he felt so sad and lonely he went and got himself a hairline fracture of the forearm, but. If he can get himself together, and Nick Ahmed can come around, and Mike Hazen can pull in a solid pitcher like Jon Gray, Arizona will have to be reckoned with.

  • Were Joe Musgrove and Kyle Bird separated at birth?

  • Don Mattingly expects Austin Dean to win a gold glove this year, but he could have competition for fielding glory from his own teammates Lewis Brinson, whose stilt-walking ability and new poor attitude should work wonders, and JT Riddle.

  • Yankees GM Brian Cashman has been on the phone all week trying to work a three-way deal with the Rays and Nationals that would send Justin Miller to New York, Adam Ottavino to Tampa Bay, and superprospect Yonny Chirinos to Washington.
