Today’s Headlines


Carlos Rodón Exits Start Early

The Yankees injury-prone season continued on Sunday, when its key free agent signing, left-handed pitcher, Carlos Rodón, exited the game early with hamstring tightness. Rodon has had a disappointing start to his tenure in New York, one that will have him in the notoriously tough city for six years. The removal could have been just a precaution, but based on Rodon’s reaction and Boone’s statements, it is certainly concerning for many Yankees fans.


Best Moments From Yesterday


Brandon Woodruff a Good Sight to Brewers Fans

Milwaukee Brewers reinstated Brandon Woodruff on Sunday with the hopes of bolstering their division lead. He did not disappoint. He struck out 9 over 5 innings pitched. Unfortunately for the Brewers, it wasn’t enough, as the Brewers lost to the Pirates. However, fans should be happy with this return as it could–and should–increase their division lead over both the Cubs and Reds.


Matt Olson Homers Again


The home run race between Shohei Ohtani and Matt Olson continued on Sunday, as Matt Olson notched his 39th homer of the season against the Cubs. This homer went over 450 feet and got him to 39 homers, just one behind Ohtani for the league lead.
