5/25/24 1:00 PM - Why Do Angels Players Have Green Ribbons on Their Uniforms?. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the Los Angeles Angels are lighting up the halo on the Big A green on Saturday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. Angels players will wear a green ribbon on their jerseys in support of mental health awareness which is a cause close to the organization and some of its current players including Mike Trout. Trout's late brother-in-law Aaron Cox was an Angels prospect and took his own life at 24 years old in 2018.

Bryce Miller is now in his second season with the Mariners. Originally drafted in the 38th round by Miami in the 2018 draft. Miller decided to instead transfer from Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, and head to College Station to pitch for Texas A&M. The move worked out for Miller. Three years later he was drafted in the fourth round by Seattle in 2021 and by 2023 he was pitching in the majors. So let's talk about Bryce Miller, an up-and-coming dynasty player.

5/25/24 6:00 AM - MLB Insider Shares Divisive Opinion on Possible Nick Castellanos Trade. The Philadelphia Phillies are the best team in MLB and are currently on a historic pace, a pace not seen by another Phillies squad since 1892.

It will come as no surprise to Philadelphia fans that there is some chatter surrounding the potential trade of Castellanos. First is his five-year, $100 million contract that runs through the 2026 MLB season and he age-34 season.

5/25/24 5:59 AM - Yankees' Juan Soto 'Wide Open' To Offers; Could Red Sox Join Sweepstakes?. The Boston Red Sox decided not to spend much this past offseason, but could that change at the end of the season? Boston did attempt to make major investments as it showed interest in Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto but was unable to get a deal done with either. The Red Sox decided after that to mainly focus on internal options for the team rather than making another splashy signing. The Red Sox have plenty of money to spend and the payroll will get even lighter as they get players off the books -- like star closer Kenley Jansen.

The Brewers, whose 5.0 runs per game ranked third, clobbered Kutter Crawford and the Red Sox to claim a 7-2 road victory witnessed by 30,992.

This gave Fry the title and role of being the team's super-utility player. Here we are, a little over a year since his promotion, and it's become more than clear that Fry is more than a utility player a manager puts in the field somebody needs a day off.

Clay Holmes arguably has been the best closer in baseball this season so far. The 31-year-old has a 1.64 ERA in 22 appearances so far this season to go along with 14 games in 22 innings pitched. The Yankees' bullpen has been a massive strength and acquiring someone to help set up for Holmes who possibly could take over the closer role next season could make sense.

5/24/24 1:16 PM - Tigers send reliever to minors after 'reckless' action led to scolding from manager. The Detroit Tigers sent their closer from last season, Alex Lange, to Triple-A after a series of events that did not make manager AJ Hinch happy. According to the Tigers' broadcast on Bally (which didn't show the incident), Lange had given up two runs, and then he threw a baseball "about 90 miles per hour over the Tigers dugout" into the protective netting in a "reckless" fashion. Afterward, Hinch came out for a mound visit and visibly scolded Lange. Benetti also said that Lange had a similar reaction after allowing back-to-back walks earlier in the week.

Duran had just one home run through his first 43 games of the season, and after switching things up in his approach at the plate, belted two in his following six games.

The culture surrounding the Dodgers clubhouse and organization has been created and cultivated by the team under manager Dave Roberts. Smith is just one of many the products of that winning culture.

Yu Darvish (P - SD)
5/24/24 5:07 AM - Padres' Yu Darvish looks to extend scoreless run in clash vs. Yanks. It's pretty hard to pitch any better than Yu Darvish has as the San Diego Padres head into the opener of their three-game series against the visiting New York Yankees on Friday night. All Darvish (4-1, 2.08 ERA) has done since coming off the injured list on April 30 is record 24 straight scoreless innings. What's more, Darvish is the first pitcher in team history to enjoy four consecutive starts of at least five scoreless innings. Given that San Diego has employed Cy Young Award winners such as Randy Jones, Gaylord Perry and Jake Peavy, that's saying something.

The Mets were one of a few organizations to allow Nolan McLean to experiment with being a two-way player. AP Photos By Manny Gómez | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com READING, Pa. — Before Dodgers phenom Shohei Ohtani , the idea of someone playing both sides of the ball at an elite level wasn't seen as a real possibility. So it's not surprising that many MLB teams didn't want to give Nolan McLean a shot as a two-way player. Enter the Mets, who decided to give McLean a chance, drafting him in the third round of the 2023 draft.

Vaughn Grissom (SS - BOS)
5/24/24 4:00 AM - Red Sox fans are overreacting to team's recent decision on Vaughn Grissom. After their December trade with the Atlanta Braves, reporters and experts heaped praise onto the Boston Red Sox's then-new addition, Vaughn Grissom. Grissom was sidelined for the entirety of spring training with a groin issue, then a bout of the flu delayed his Red Sox debut even further. The 23-year-old got just nine games in Triple-A before he began his Red Sox career, and it's showing in his stats. Grissom is batting .136/.164/.153 with a .317 OPS since his May 3 debut.

Trailing 8-2 entering the bottom of the ninth , the White Sox scored four runs and closed within 8-6. With runners on first and second and one out, Andrew Benintendi hit a popup to Orioles shortstop Gunnar Henderson. The infield fly rule was called and umpires ruled the runner at second, Andrew Vaughn, interfered with Henderson. The runner was called out, ending the game and Chicago’s rally.

The Los Angeles Dodgers won a fourth consecutive game with a 6-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, which saw Yoshinobu Yamamoto turn in another solid start. Yamamoto's outing was the 18th time in a 27 game stint that a Dodgers starting pitcher threw at least six innings. “It's everything,” manager Dave Roberts said of the team's starters providing length. The Dodgers rotation has been led by Tyler Glasnow and Yamamoto this season, but Landon Knack, Gavin Stone and James Paxton have also been pleasant surprises.

Shohei Ohtani (DH - LAD)
5/24/24 2:59 AM - Dodgers Rumors: Shohei Ohtani Not Opposed To Being Full-Time Position Player. When the Los Angeles Dodgers made history by giving Shohei Ohtani the richest contract in the history of sports, 10-year, $700 million, no one really batted an eye at the previously unheard of amount of money Ohtani was given. Despite the fact that teams knew Ohtani was not going to pitch in 2024, there was already an expectation around the league that he could demand a king's ransom for his services as he entered his first free agency. Ohtani is just 52 games into his ginormous contract and has yet to throw a pitch for the Dodgers, but with the way he has been hitting this season, it doesn't seem ridiculous to say that L.A. can get their money's worth even if Ohtani never throws a single pitch for them.

Bo Bichette (SS - TOR)
5/24/24 2:54 AM - MLB Rumors: Blue Jays Not 'Opposed' To Bo Bichette Trade. With roughly two months until the July 30 trade deadline, speculation has begun over which players could be on the move. The Toronto Blue Jays have been one of the most disappointing teams so far behind a 22-26 record and last-place showing in the American League East. The Blue Jays' struggles can be attributed to several key players underperforming, including Bo Bichette, who is set to become a free agent after the 2025 season. Bichette's name came up in trade rumors this past offseason, but the Blue Jays ultimately held on to him.

Andrew Benintendi (OF - CHW)
5/24/24 2:34 AM - Paul Sullivan: White Sox broadcaster John Schriffen seems to love a good beef — but he should beware of the 'haters'. In the battle between Chicago White Sox broadcaster John Schriffen and the “radio losers,” put your money on the losers. Only two months into his rookie season as Sox announcer, Schriffen has managed to create more attention than the players of the team he works for, making himself the story for calling out “all the haters” during a call of Andrew Benintendi's walk-off home run on April 27 and ripping “radio losers” during a May 17 game against the New York Yankees. “If any of those radio losers clip it and try to make fun of you, nobody cares about them anyway,” Schriffen told partner Gordon Beckham after Beckham misread a promo card. Schriffen was careful not to name names, and since he stopped talking to the media after the “haters” call, we only can speculate who the haters and radio losers are.
