MLB to pay $185 million in settlement with minor league players over minimum-wage and overtime allegations

Major League Baseball will pay $185 million to settle the federal class-action lawsuit filed by minor league players who sought pay for minimum-wage and overtime violations by teams, pending a judge approving the settlement, according to a document filed in California court Friday.

The suit, filed in February 2014 by former Miami Marlins minor leaguer Aaron Senne and two other retired minor league players, was settled May 10, three weeks before it was set to go to trial. Thousands of other players will be eligible to receive part of the $120,197,300 due to players, with the rest going to attorney’s fees and other costs.

As part of the settlement, MLB will issue a memo that allows teams to pay minor league players during spring training, ...

Here’s who should’ve gone 1st in every Draft

2013 (Astros): Mark Appel (0.2)
Should’ve picked: Aaron Judge, 32nd overall, Yankees (29.9)
Appel finally made a triumphant Major League debut this season with the Phillies, but Judge has a good shot to join Kris Bryant (No. 2, Cubs) and Cody Bellinger (fourth round, Dodgers) as the third MVP Award winner from this class. (And remember, the Yanks got that 32nd pick as compensation for Nick Swisher leaving for Cleveland in free agency the previous offseason).

Ozzie Guillén challenges Jon Heyman to a charity boxing match: “Tired of this liar talking about me.”

Following Guillén’s criticism of La Russa and his uncalled for shot at Renteria, Jon Heyman of The New York Post and MLB Network tweeted that the NBC Sports Chicago analyst might be trying to get his old job back. Guillén managed the White Sox from 2004-2011, winning a World Series during his second season with the club. The comment by Heyman seemed to have irked Guillén, because he responded on Twitter by challenging the baseball insider to a charity boxing match.

According to Guillén, it wasn’t just about the allegation that he wants La Russa’s job. The former manager feels Heyman has been overly critical of him throughout the years. But as they went back and forth on Twitter, Guillén also called into Chicago’s 670 The ...

Chicago Cubs sued over alleged ADA violations at Wrigley Field

Federal prosecutors in Chicago filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Cubs, alleging the team failed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act when it executed a series of renovations at Wrigley Field.

Attorneys for the government on Thursday said that while the ballpark renovations “significantly enhanced the gameday experience for many fans, particularly those able to take advantage of premium clubs and other luxury accommodations, the same can not be said for fans with disabilities.”

The suit states that the Cubs “removed the best wheelchair seating in the stadium, failed to incorporate wheelchair seating into new premium clubs and group seating areas … and failed to remove architectural barriers to access in unaltered ...

Yankees bring back Tyler Wade in trade with Angels

Tyler Wade is coming back to where he started.

The Yankees are acquiring the versatile Wade from the Angels for a player to be named later, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed on Thursday, further bolstering their organizational depth. Wade will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Wade was designated for assignment by the Yankees in November to make room on their 40-man roster, leading to a trade to the Angels. But after hitting .215 with a 56 OPS-plus and eight steals in 67 games for Los Angeles, Wade was DFA’d again by the Angels on July 3.

The 27-year-old Wade had the best year of his career last season with the Yankees – the last of his five seasons in The Bronx – when he hit .268 with a 91 OPS-plus and 17 steals. He ...

Ray Kroc Once Got On The PA And Called His San Diego Padres Stupid In Front Of Everyone

The Padres were once again clobbered in their home opener on April 9, losing 9-5. Kroc spent the game stewing as his team committed such foibles as forgetting the number of outs, and blowing a chance to score with the bases loaded. With the Astros holding onto a 9-2 lead in the ninth, Kroc was finally set off after a pinch runner who’d just entered the game was picked off at first. He stormed from the owners box to the PA booth, grabbed the microphone, and addressed Padres fans as their team’s owner for the first time.

“Fans, I suffer with you. I’ve never seen such stupid ballplaying in my life,” he said. After a streaker briefly interrupted him—Kroc screamed for the man to be thrown in jail—he continued to roast his team. ...

What you need to know about Statcast bat tracking

Technology to track the speed and path of bats is not exactly new; teams and swing coaches have been investing in bat sensors and other technology for years, primarily used in practice or laboratory or other non-game settings. It’s a near certainty that some teams have their own internal measures of bat speed; as we said, physicists have been working out optimal swing paths and ways to calculate swing speed for decades. In 2015, to pick one example of many, Dr. Alan Nathan went deep into the physics of it all. This is a new way to attack a very old question.

What’s different, then, is that this is in-game tracking, collected from real 2022 Major League Baseball action. It doesn’t require reverse engineering from exit velocity; it ...

MLB ALL-STAR GAME 2022: HOW MANY FUTURE HALL OF FAMERS WILL PLAY IN L.A.?

From 1963 to 2000, there were an average of 18 future Hall of Famers on All-Star rosters. If you include the players with steroid connections who would be Hall shoo-ins otherwise — Bonds, Clemens, Sosa, McGwire, Palmeiro, Sheffield, A-Rod — plus the banned Pete Rose, that number bumps up to 20.5. The highest tally was 25 in ‘72, the lowest was 12 Hall of Famers in ‘76 and ‘89.

What about this year?

The All-Star rosters are out, but they’ll change a bit between now and the game. In fact, they’re already changing, just like they always do. Carlos Rodón, J.D. Martinez and Garrett Cooper were all added as replacements on Tuesday. For the purposes of this exercise, we’re going with the rosters as of Tuesday night, knowing that ...

Tomase: Why this John Henry quote about Bogaerts is infuriating

John Henry weighed in on the state of the Red Sox with the trade deadline three weeks away, and one quote caught my eye, not to mention my ire.J

When asked by Alex Speier of The Boston Globe about reaching contract extensions with Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers, Henry sounded a familiar refrain.

“It takes two to make a deal,” he said. “I think it’s clear both of them want to be here. We want them here. We made efforts in the past to try to sign players that we weren’t able to sign.

“It’s not 100 percent our fault when we don’t end up signing a player. We’ve signed players where it’s really worked out. We’ve signed others that, it’s our job to try to sign the right players. Frankly, over the last 20 years, we haven’t done it [every ...

Finnish baseball player flies headfirst into river while chasing ball

No, this isn’t faked — as much as you might want to believe it is. This clip comes to us from the “Superpesis,” the championship series of “Pesäpallo,” which is a Scandanavian variant of baseball. Playing in perhaps the worst conceived sporting arena ever, the Saarikenttä or “island stadium” is surrounded on four sides by a river, and can only be accessed by crossing a bridge.

This leads to a lot of unique moments, as one can imagine. Unlike baseball there’s no equivalent of a ground rule double in Pesäpallo, which means a ball hit into the river (which occurs fairly often) is still live. With players needing to wade through actual flowing water to get the ball and throw it back on the field it’s generally accepted ...

MLB testing ‘pie slice’ infield experiment aimed at reining in defensive shift in Class A FSL

The Florida State League will limit defensive shifts by drawing chalk lines in a pie shape from second base to the outfield grass starting July 22, prohibiting infielders from the marked area prior to the pitch in an experiment that could increase offense.

Major League Baseball has been testing shift limits all season at Double-A and Class A, requiring teams to have four players on the infield, including two on each side of second base.

The experiment in the Class A FSL was first reported by The Athletic and confirmed by MLB on Tuesday.

Chicago White Sox drop the opener of an 8-game trip after Ken Williams reportedly addressed the ‘underachieving’ team

Executive Vice President Ken Williams reportedly addressed Chicago White Sox players and staff Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field.

News of the meeting, reported by USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, became public Monday just as the Sox were beginning their final trip before the All-Star break with the first of four games against the Cleveland Guardians.

It was a bumpy start for the Sox as the Guardians scored five in the first off Lance Lynn. The Sox got within a run before losing 8-4 in front of 13,655 at Progressive Field.

‘Bring it on’: Scherzer leads statement win vs. Braves

The lone blight on Max Scherzer’s evening was still in the recent past on Monday when Eddie Rosario stepped to the plate with two outs in seventh. Standing on second base was Marcell Ozuna, who represented the tying run. Back in the dugout was Austin Riley, who had homered off Scherzer moments earlier. All around the Mets’ ace, a sold-out Truist Park crowd thundered as loudly as it could.

Scherzer ignored it and went to work, jumping ahead of Rosario in the count. He wasted an 0-2 pitch and then came back with his silencer: an 88-mph cutter that caused Rosario to fly open and swing wildly at the baseball. When Rosario did, Scherzer whirled and slammed his fist toward the ground, letting out an audible roar of emotion.

Atlanta gets No. 35 pick from KC for top prospect, two others

The Braves acquired the 35th pick in this Sunday’s MLB Draft from the Royals on Monday for center fielder Drew Waters, RHP Andrew Hoffmann and infielder C.J. Alexander.

The pick is a Competitive Balance Round A pick, which is eligible to be traded. As MLB.com’s Jim Callis reported in April, the 35th pick holds a slot value of $2.2 million. The Braves, who also own the 20th overall pick, bumped their Draft pool money up to $10.2 million, the 10th-highest total.

Smooth sailing: Santana, Mariners win 8th straight, sweep Jays

Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had a throw bust through the webbing of his glove and the Seattle Mariners took advantage for their eighth straight win, beating Toronto 6-5 Sunday on two home runs by Carlos Santana.

“Baseball can be cruel sometimes when things aren’t going right,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said.

A day after Santana hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning for a 2-1 win, he connected for a go-ahead, two-run drive in the eighth. The Mariners are 16-3 for their best 19-game stretch since 2003.

“Everything is positive right now, so we have to keep it up,” Santana said. “The energy is great. The fan support, in the clubhouse, teammates are great. When you see that, everything is great.”

Warriors Owner Joe Lacob Says He Has ‘Standing Offer’ to Buy A’s

Lacob doesn’t mince words about how he thinks the ballpark situation would’ve played out under his control.

Reds beat Rays via 23rd walk-off balk in MLB history

A game between the Cincinnati Reds and Tampa Bay Rays ended in bizarre fashion on Friday when, with runners on the corners and one out in the bottom of the 10th, home plate umpire Edwin Moscoso called a balk on Rays pitcher Matt Wisler.

Wisler appeared to have moved his glove to encourage catcher Francisco Mejía to go through his signs again, but Moscoso apparently thought it was too much movement. Pitchers can not halt their motion to a set position once it has begun, as Reds analyst Chris Welsh explained.

With the game tied at 1-1, the balk scored the runner on third and ended the game.

Orioles rally in ninth, beat Angels, 5-4, on Trey Mancini’s walk-off single for sixth straight victory

The first time they chanted his name, the hyped-up crowd of nearly 28,000 filling Oriole Park at Camden Yards for the first time since April, the letdown had been felt with a groan and the slam of a bat.

But with two outs in the ninth inning, as the fans rose to their feet and the pressure rose with them, catcher Adley Rutschman came to the plate and wasn’t rattled. He didn’t look like a 24-year-old rookie in front of the largest crowd he’s ever played for in Baltimore. The elevated fastball, the sixth pitch of the at-bat, leapt off his bat and split the right-center gap for a run-scoring double, giving the Orioles — and their fans — a breath of life.
