Today’s Headlines

First Place Race

The Rays are now just a game back from the first-place Orioles in a tight American League East race. With a tie-breaking homer in the seventh, and the bullpen extending their 34-inning stretch of not allowing a single run, the Rays are hoping to oust the O’s and regain first place once again.

Bloom Out

Chaim Bloom was fired from his position of chief baseball officer Thursday. Bloom held the position with the Red Sox for four years, hired in 2019. The team made the postseason just once in those four years, advancing to the ALCS in 2021, but losing to the Astros.

Hendriks Has No Regrets

Liam Hendriks knowingly pitched this season with a torn UCL, prior to his rehab assignment. Hendriks knew the pain he was dealing with was different, but he doesn’t regret coming back for the season. Hendriks claimed he has not felt pain while pitching since at least May of this year.

Yankees’ outfielder Jasson Domínguez will undergo Tommy John surgery next week and will miss 9-10 months, per Aaron Boone. The 20-year-old made his debut on September 1 before being diagnosed with a torn UCL. The rookie ended his season with a .980 OPS, four home runs, and seven RBIs in 31 at-bats.
