Phillies’ Andrew McCutchen disses Yankees’ hair policy

Andrew McCutchen thinks the Yankees should cut their hair policy.

“I definitely do think it takes away from our individualism as players and as people,” McCutchen told Jensen Karp on “The Sports Bubble” podcast. “We express ourselves in different ways.”....

“I feel like maybe there should be some change there in the future — who knows when — but it’s just one of the many things in this game that I feel that there just needs ... it needs to be talked about, and to be addressed,” said McCutchen, who took a three-year, $50-million deal from Philadelphia following his stint with the Yankees.

Of course, McCutchen’s stay with the Yankees wasn’t all bad. In fact, he called the organization “great.” He said he felt ...

Wild Excitement Caused By Illegal Pitching of Dave Danforth of Columbus Develops A Near-Riot, Pop Bottle Throwing And Delays The Game For Two Hours and 35 Minutes

Danforth was pitching sailers all morning, and the Umpire Murray threw out two dozen balls and warned the southpaw several times…During one of the many arguments at the plate, somebody in the lower section of the stand hurled a pop bottle on the field that rolled over the pan at the feet of the arbiter.

There wasn’t much harm in this, but there was a possible death in another bottle that was thrown with great force from the top entrance to the upper deck.

Things went downhill quickly, the fans rioted, more cops showed up, and eventually everyone ...

How the Rays Became MLB’s Outliers by Finding MLB’s Outliers

The Rays are the Antiques Roadshow of baseball. They find Picassos in attics, Tiffany lamps in basements and pitchers with outlier stuff in the dumpsters of other organizations.

In Fairbanks they saw not just velocity but also near-perfect backspin on his four-seamer, which they and other smart clubs know is the proven antidote against the launch-angle hitting revolution. To get Fairbanks they traded Nick Solak, a promising hitter without great defensive value.

Since joining the Rays, Fairbanks has improved his stuff even more, thanks to the wizardry of pitching coach Kyle Snyder and process and analytics coach Jonathan Erlichman, a former math major and club hockey player at Princeton.

“Our guys do a tremendous job looking for the ...

Covid-19 test delays impacting multiple teams

Alex Coffey of The Athletic reported overnight that the Oakland Athletics have yet to have a full squad workout because of COVID-19 test delays. They were supposed to begin such workouts yesterday, but delayed them until today. They have since been delayed again until tonight, and even those may not happen.

Why? Because the initial team tests that are required before allowing the team’s full complement of players and coaches into the facility had not even arrived at MLB’s testing center in Utah as of last night. Indeed, they sat in the San Francisco airport all weekend because no one with MLB or the league’s testing company bothered to account for the Fourth of July holiday and expedite shipping.

The legend of the Astros’ free beer ‘Foamer Nights’

On “Foamer Night,” there was a rectangular orange light next to the scoreboard clock in right field. When the digital clock was on an even-numbered minute while the Astros were hitting, the light was illuminated. If an Astros player hit a homer – err, “foamer” – while the light was glowing, fans got free beer the rest of the night through the eighth inning.
Cliff] Johnson became a hit by paying particularly keen attention to that orange light.
The San Antonio native, who led the 1975 Astros with 20 home runs, would take intentionally laborious strolls to the plate if his turn at bat came upon an odd-numbered minute. He’d stop to adjust his batting gloves. He’d call for time as he dug into the dirt with his cleats, keeping ...

Nats’ Ryan Zimmerman, Joe Ross among first MLB players to opt out of 2020 season

“Veteran first baseman Ryan Zimmerman and starting pitcher Joe Ross of the Washington Nationals were among the first major leaguers to opt out of the 2020 season because of concerns about the novel coronavirus — although with players due to begin reporting for mandatory virus testing this week ahead of Friday’s opening of “summer camps,” they almost certainly will not be the last. . . .

Are there graves under Tropicana Field parking lots? Archaeologists want to find out

Thirty years ago, residents stepped forward when the city prepared to pave parking lots 1 and 2 for Tropicana Field.

They thought caskets were under those 12 acres on the corner of 16th Street South and spreading from Third Avenue South to Fifth Avenue South.

It was once the home to Oaklawn Cemetery, the city was told, and bodies were likely left behind when it was moved in the mid-20th century.

Oaklawn was adjacent to two other cemeteries. In 1976, human remains were unearthed from one of those properties during construction, years after the burial grounds were supposed to have been moved, bolstering the belief that bodies were also under the parking lot land.


But the land was paved without further investigation.

Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka hit in head by Giancarlo Stanton line drive

Just minutes after the Yankees opened spring training 2.0 Saturday in The Bronx, Masahiro Tanaka suffered a frightening injury when he took a line drive to the right side of his head off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton.

Tanaka immediately fell on the mound and action stopped as trainers rushed to check on him. He stayed down for approximately five minutes before sitting up. He was helped to his feet and walked off the field with the assistance of two trainers.

The Yankees later announced that Tanaka was “alert, responsive and walking under his own power.” He is being sent to NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital for further evaluation and testing.

Dodgers pitcher David Price opts out of 2020 MLB season

The Los Angeles Dodgers will not have pitcher David Price in 2020. Price announced Saturday he will not take part in the 2020 Major League Baseball season.

Price, 34, said he believes it’s “in the best interest of my health and my family’s health” that he sits out this year.

Price added he will miss his teammates and will cheer them on. He told the team he look forward to representing it next season. Price finished his note telling everyone to “stay safe, be well and be kind.”

Price was traded to the Dodgers in February as part of the Mookie Betts deal. The 12-year veteran took part in spring training with the team before the coronavirus suspended the season.

Cleveland Indians look into changing name amid pressure

They’ve been known as the Cleveland Indians since 1915. Those days could be over.

Amid new pressure sparked by a national movement to correct racial wrongdoings, the Indians said Friday night they will review their long-debated nickname which has been in place for 105 years.

“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the team said in a statement that came just hours after the NFL’s Washington Redskins announced a similar move. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community.”

Thirty-one Major League Baseball players and seven staff members tested positive for COVID-19 during intake for the resumption of training, a rate of 1.2%.

MLB and the players’ association announced the results Friday as teams resumed workouts for the first time since the coronavirus interrupted spring training on March 12, two weeks before the season was to start. Opening day has been reset for July 23, the latest in baseball history.

The positive tests occurred among 19 of the 30 teams, according to results of the samples sent to the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory in South Jordan, Utah. There were 3,185 samples collected and tested through the first week of intake testing.

Chicago Cubs left-hander Jose Quintana needed surgery to repair a laceration he suffered washing dishes.

The team said the 31-year-old was injured at his home in Miami, suffering a laceration on his left thumb that required five stitches.

“This morning in Chicago, Quintana underwent microscopic surgery on his left thumb to further determine the extent of his injury,” the team said Thursday in a statement. “The procedure identified a lacerated digital sensory nerve in his left thumb, which was surgically repaired.”


Quintana is expected to start throwing again in two weeks, and then the team will determine how long he will be out.

On July 1, 1920, Walter Johnson pitched his first no-hit, no-run game, defeating the Red Sox, at Boston, 1 to 0. Hooper reached first on Harris’ error in the seventh. Only five balls were hit beyong [sic] the infield.

Elsewhere on the page, a quote from Clark Griffith:

His fast ball was just like the old times and so good that the Red Sox knew it was coming, laid for it, yet could not touch it…There was too much talk about Johnson being all through. I imagine this got under Walter’s skin, even if he is the last man in the game to bother about what it said about his work in the papers or by fans speaking from the stands.

For the most part, after 1919 Walter Johnson was no longer Walter Johnson, but he was still ...

Athletics To Trade Jorge Mateo To Padres

Long regarded as one of baseball’s more promising prospects due in no small part to his 80-grade speed, Mateo has yet to debut in the Majors. The 25-year-old was a central piece in the trade that sent right-hander Sonny Gray from Oakland to New York, but he hasn’t been afforded a chance in the Majors with either the Yankees or the A’s. He has, however, been on the 40-man roster of both clubs long enough to have exhausted all of his minor league options. In other words, he’ll have to make the Padres’ Opening Day roster or else be designated for assignment.

Mateo was one of several players in the mix for playing time at second base in Oakland, vying with Franklin Barreto, Tony Kemp and Rule 5 pick Vimael Machin for that role. Now ...

The Detroit Tigers have signed No. 1 overall draft pick Spencer Torkelson to a record-setting bonus.

The Arizona State first baseman signed for $8,416,300, according to MLB.com’s Jim Callis.

That’s the largest bonus for a draft pick since Major League Baseball began using bonus pools.

The bonus was exactly $1,000 more than the slot value for the No. 1 pick, perhaps a symbolic statement from Torkelson’s agent, Scott Boras, to ensure that his client was paid “over slot.”
