Report: Blue Jays Exploring Possibility of Home Games in Buffalo

The Toronto Blue Jays have reached out to their Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons, about possibly playing their home games in Buffalo this summer, according to the Buffalo News’ Mike Harrington.

The Blue Jays are currently holding their workouts in Toronto, but while Canadian health officials provided the club for clearance for summer camp, the team is yet to obtain approval for regular-season games.

Toronto players are currently being quarantined at a Marriott hotel that is connected to the Rogers Centre.

The team’s spring training facility in Dunedin, Fla., appears to be another option for the club if it is unable to obtain clearance and play games in Toronto, though with COVID-19 cases spiking in Florida, that provides its own ...

White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper concerned about Michael Kopech

Michael Kopech’s decision to not play baseball this season remains a mystery because Kopech hasn’t spoken — not to teammates and not to his pitching coach, who knows the prized right-hander is healthy.

But Don Cooper says he is concerned.

“I don’t know what is going on with Michael, but I know he deals with some anxiety and depression, and my thought is, I sure hope he’s OK,” Cooper told the Chicago Sun-Times on Saturday. “And I hope he gets to where he needs to be, where he’s feeling good and wants to come back, because we will welcome him back with open arms.”

Knowing Kopech, 24, has openly discussed his anxiety and depression issues makes Cooper a bit uneasy. On an encouraging note, Kopech talked about being on ...

Padres Release Brian Dozier

The Padres have released second baseman Brian Dozier, as per the team’s official Twitter feed.  Dozier signed a minor league deal with the organization back in February, and wasn’t included on San Diego’s initial 60-man player pool at the start of Summer Camp.  As per MLB.com’s AJ Cassavell, Dozier could opt out of his deal on July 18 if he hadn’t been added to the roster.

It seemed like the Padres had simply decided to move on from Dozier, particularly after acquiring Jorge Mateo from the A’s to further bolster the second base position (though Mateo is currently in isolation after a positive coronavirus test).  Even with Mateo recovering, San Diego still has a fair amount of second base depth, with Jurickson Profar slated to ...

Jay Jackson arrested for marijuana

There’s a lot to unpack here.

According to the NHK story, Jackson was arrested in the predawn hours of Friday in a parking lot in Hiroshima’s Minami Ward. Operating on an anonymous tip, the Hiroshima police on Tuesday searched his apartment in Chiba, just east of Tokyo on Tuesday, when they found bottles containing liquid cannabis.

Considering the situation, one of the following seems likely to have happened:

Jackson was breaking the law by possessing illegal substances, and someone in Hiroshima who wanted to shut him up about the child custody case ratted him out.
Jackson willingly purchased the illegal substances from someone who then ratted him out in order to shut him up abut the child custody case.

A Conversation with Cincinnati Reds Pitching Coordinator Kyle Boddy

Laurila: What was your role in the amateur draft?

Boddy: “I was more involved in the non-drafted process. By the nature of only having five rounds, there was only so much work to do. But I helped with mechanical breakdowns and video work, as well as character references.

“On the non-drafted side, I was extremely involved in recruiting. There were a lot of Zoom calls. A lot of these kids have 10-plus options — teams are trying to sign everyone — so I was explaining to them why the Reds are a good fit. We prepared a 25-page recruiting pamphlet, with a ton of GIFs.

Former catcher, longtime coach Mike Ryan dies at 78

Mike Ryan, the backup catcher on the Boston Red Sox’s 1967 “Impossible Dream” team during a 35-year career in professional baseball, has died. He was 78.

The Red Sox said Ryan died in his sleep on Tuesday in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

A native of Haverhill, Massachusetts, Ryan appeared in 636 games with the Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates from 1964 to 1974. He was Boston’s backup catcher for the American League championship team in 1967, going hitless in his only two World Series at-bats when the Red Sox lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games.

Aroldis Chapman tests positive with mild symptoms

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman will not be with the team “for the foreseeable future” after testing positive for COVID-19, manager Aaron Boone said on Saturday.

Boone said that the six-time All-Star is experiencing “mild symptoms but overall is doing well.” The 32-year-old Chapman will have to receive two negative tests over a 24-hour period before he can rejoin the Yankees.

Chapman has been working out at Yankee Stadium since Sunday, having tossed twice in the bullpen following a delayed arrival. He had not yet participated in the club’s intrasquad games, and Boone said that he does not believe that the situation will lead to more positive tests on the roster.

Will MLB’s Testing Plan Sink Its Season?

“The biggest issue is a delay in getting results back,” says Andrew Pekosz, a professor of immunology and microbiology at Johns Hopkins. “Obviously, shipping samples, having them analyzed and then having the data sent back is all going to put extra time in between a test and telling someone the results.”

But the need to build in shipping time and the potential for delays are not the only obstacles. By relying on a single lab, MLB has streamlined its system, but it’s also centralized its risk: If there’s a problem that causes a backlog, it will affect all teams’ tests. And SMRTL, as a drug-testing laboratory, is now getting accustomed with new instruments and test methods, which can increase the chances of those problems.

How quickly did San Francisco realize that Candlestick Park was a debacle?

Subscription required, but this is fantastic.

In the Chronicle on May 15, 1960, a Giants official anonymously conceded the heating system’s uselessness, but it was in an article about a much different problem. The article appears to be the first instance of the phrase “Cardiac Hill,” which was used to describe the brutal climb that was required to enter the ballpark at all. Just a month after Candlestick opened, columnist Art Rosenbaum coined the phrase while writing about a rumor that the Giants were going to be forced to consider a $1 million “traveling sidewalk,” among other improvements.

If you think the term “Cardiac Hill” was a cutesy, playful moniker, consider this headline from the very next day:

Giants catcher Buster Posey opts out of 2020 MLB season

an Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey became Major League Baseball’s most celebrated position player to opt out of the 2020 season, formally announced his decision Friday morning after deliberating the past three days.

Making his announcement Friday, Posey said that he and his wife had recently adopted twin girls who were born prematurely.

Posey, a member of the Giants’ three World Series championship teams and the 2012 National League MVP, was unsure he’d play this season when he arrived to camp last week. The 33-year-old missed three of the team’s 10 workouts as he weighed his decision.

“It would be a little bit maybe naive or silly not to gauge what’s going on around you,’’ Posey said on a conference call Saturday. ...

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 7-10-2020

[Indianapolis] Indiana Daily Times, July 10, 1920:

Pitcher Art Smith of the Rockford Three-I league team assaulted Umpire (Scully) Jones in Friday’s game, breaking Jones’ nose. Bleacher spectators threw pop bottles at Smith when he was ejected from the park. Smith had announced his intention of quitting the Rockford club to join a semi-professional team at Kansas City.

You’d think he would pretty much have to leave organized baseball after violently booping an umpire’s snoot, but Smith was back in 1921. He spent 1921-1924 as a first baseman in the International and Pacific Coast Leagues. As Scully Jones could tell you, Art Smith was a pretty good hitter, but his statistics don’t scream “guy who was unjustly held back from the majors.” ...Read More...

MLB Is Trying to Get a Grip on Foreign Substances. What Does That Mean for Pitchers?

No players I surveyed seem to disagree with Bauer’s estimate that 70 percent of pitchers are using foreign substances that are technically disallowed—unless it’s to say that 70 percent seems low. “If they start to crack down on it there will be so many suspensions, unfortunately,” says one MLB pitcher. “We all know the number of players who use it is easily above 70 percent. After the Astros scandal this would just make MLB look even worse, in my opinion.”

Then again, not suspending players involved in the sign-stealing scheme was part of what made the league look so bad. One important purpose of the memo appears to be covering MLB’s ass in the event of a foreign-substance scandal. The last paragraph makes it clear that ...

Steve Cohen puts in $2B bid on Mets, Alex Rodriguez-Jennifer Lopez still in hunt

The first round of bids for the Mets are in — and for starters Steve Cohen appears to have made the highest offer.

Cohen, the hedge-fund billionaire who had previously offered $2.6 billion only to see the deal fall apart at the 11th hour, delivered the Wilpons an offer for $2 billion this time, according to a Fox Business report. That report stated Cohen is also willing to offer an additional $2 billion to also acquire SNY.

Cohen’s bid wasn’t the only one to come in before Thursday’s deadline.

Secondly, expansion would offer the opportunity to balance baseball’s two leagues to an even number of 16 teams per league. That would make scheduling and travel easier….

Water Valley [Mississippi] Progress-Itemizer, July 9, 1920:

Carl Mays tells a story of how the Cleveland team stole signs to their own detriment against the Boston Red Sox. The Indians sent a couple of “sign hawks” out on the lines and grabbed off what they believed to be the right signs.

The Red Sox, however, switched their signs and the Cleveland batters stepping in to meet fast balls were beaned by curves until several had been hit.

At last one Cleveland batter stepped in and, never looking at the coaches, yelled: “Don’t tell me what they’re throwing; I don’t want to know, I don’t want to get hit.”

I’m not saying Mays was making this up. I’m just saying that Cleveland hadn’t had multiple hit-by-pitches in the same regular season game ...

To bunt, or not? How to handle new rule in extras

2. For the hitting team: Is a sacrifice bunt a good idea?
Well, that depends. Is a runner on third with one out better than a runner on second with no outs? Who’s hitting and pitching? And, most importantly, are you the home team or the road team?

If you’re the home team in a tied extra-inning game, one run is enough to win, no matter how you get it. But if you’re the road team, you can’t simply assume one run will be all you’ll need—you still need to defend that lead in the bottom of the inning, and larger leads are obviously better. And if you’re the home team down by multiple runs, you really don’t want to give up one of your three outs.

All of this makes home vs. road an important difference; think of this like how it works in ...

Major League Baseball will feature a shortened 60-game season in 2020, as well as empty (or at least mostly empty) stadiums, if they’re even able to complete the season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

MLB.TV has set its price at $59.99 for its main package, featuring every team’s out-of-market games. Before everything was shut down in March, the streaming service was listed at $121.99 for the 162-game season (there was a monthly option for $24.99/month).

Indians keep Franmil Reyes away from summer camp for not wearing mask at party

The Cleveland Indians are keeping outfielder Franmil Reyes away from training camp after they spotted him on social media attending a weekend holiday party without wearing a mask.

Manager Terry Francona said Reyes is not in any trouble with the team. But by not practicing social distancing or wearing a mask he exposed himself—and his teammates—to infection, and the team is being overly cautious.

Francona said Reyes, who was traded to Cleveland last season from San Diego, will have to be retested for the virus “when it’s appropriate.”

“He’s not in the penalty box,” Francona said. “It’s just the way we have to operate right now. So, hopefully we’ll see him soon.”

Trevor Bauer wants to start every fourth day in 60-game season, and the Reds might let him

Reds right-hander Trevor Bauer has in the past stumped to be part of a four-man rotation, or least start every fourth day himself. That wish is unlikely to be granted during a normal 162-game season, but the 2020 regular season will span just 60 games because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That means the time may be nigh for Bauer to take the bump every fourth day.

As Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports, that might be just what happens. Via Nightengale:

The question looming throughout preseason camp is how much is enough for Bauer in the starting rotation. Pitching coach Derek Johnson said he was considering using Bauer as a starter every fourth day, something Bauer has advocated for, instead of the typical five days.

But when we ask organizations about the lack of diversity in certain positions or why there persists a culture impacted by significant bias both overt and in the shadows, there are few answers. Yes, it’s an emotional issue, rooted in long-established systemic biases that can be tough to quantify, but we have developed many social models for a whole host of other circumstances. Why not turn those analytical minds toward this goal of diversity? Or use analytics to understand how the system can perpetuate disparity? After all, there are aspects to it that are indeed equations. Bias is measurable when it comes to outcomes. We have statistical data points.

Braves could ditch ‘Tomahawk Chop,’ but won’t change name

To do the “Tomahawk Chop,” fans imitate a Native American chant and wave a foam tomahawk or an empty hand back and forth. It is usually prompted by music played over the public address system.
