Skenes and Wheeler are two of the top three pitchers in the NL Cy Young odds along with Atlanta's Chris Sale as Major League Baseball opens up the business end of the season. It's a blessing and a curse that the Phillies do not see Skenes this weekend, right?

In 2023, the Royals went 56-106 to tie an 18-year-old franchise record for lowest winning percentage. Now, Kansas City is 52-45 and firmly in playoff contention. For that, the Royals have to thank (among others) veteran catcher Salvador Perez. The consistent performer has slashed a sterling .282/.343/.477 this season, hitting 17 home runs and driving in 62 runs. Friday morning, however, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that Perez's

Spencer Strider, last year's strikeout king, was lost for the season just days into this year. Ronald Acuña Jr., last year's Most Valuable Player, started slow and tore his ACL after just 49 games.

Not just because his large fan club was feverishly watching in the stadium seats, but rather his first at-bat against the Cleveland Guardians was a significantly loud out –– a ball crushed an estimated 390 feet that Guardians left fielder Steven Kwawn robbed at the wall, nixing Schuemann's potential first big league hit in the second inning.

The 2024 Trade Deadline is approaching fast, and with the Arizona Diamondbacks setting themselves up to be buyers, I compiled a list of infielders that might fit the teams bill. It was not long ago that an infielder, more specifically a third baseman would have been at the top of Mike Hazens' mid-summer shopping list. As reported by Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Mike Hazen said "Another bat, likely on the infield, would help." This almost certainly stems from the production that the D-backs have, or more likely have not gotten from Eugenio Suarez.

The Oakland A's, as the baseball world has known them for roughly the last five-and-a-half decades, have just 64 games remaining — 34 of which will be at the Coliseum. Here are several storylines worth watching over the next several weeks before the A's play their final game at the Coliseum on Sept. 26 and finish the 2024 season three days later in Seattle.

An 8-18 finish to the first half knocked the Yankees out of first place in the AL East and raised some serious red flags throughout the roster, from the starting rotation, the lineup and just about everywhere in-between.

Their top four relievers at the time — José Alvarado , Craig Kimbrel , Jeff Hoffman, Matt Strahm — combined for 26? of those innings. Which means there were 18 innings left over, all of them pitched by a reliever who was outside of the top four. Advertisement Question: Who pitches those innings this year? OK, so it isn't really a math problem. More like game theory. Or philosophy. Or natural disaster preparedness.

Now the will try his hand at MLB. The A’s will call up Wilson, 22, to begin the second half of the 2024 season, MLB.com’s Martin Gallegos reported Thursday, citing a source. Taken with the No. 6 overall draft pick last summer, Wilson has rocketed through the A’s minor league system. After playing three games with the A’s Rookie Level team to begin his professional career last year, Wilson was sent to High-A Lansing, where he hit .318.378/.455 in 23 games. The A’s challenged the Grand Canyon University product by starting him at Double-A Midland to begin the 2024 season. He needed just 22 games to show he was ready for more, as he hit .455/.473/.705 with 13 doubles, three homers and 19 RBI. Wilson barely cooled off as he made the move to Triple-A Las Vegas. In 19 games with the Aviators, he hit .398/.444/.639 with eight doubles, four homers and 12 RBI. In the end, it took Wilson only 72 minor-league games to earn his first MLB call-up. Now the A’s will see if that success can carry over the highest level. If everything goes according to the A’s plan, Wilson will form a cornerstone middle infield with second baseman Zack Gelof for the next few years. Wilson and Gelof, along with fellow former top prospects Tyler Soderstrom and Lawrence Butler, could become the nucleus for the next great A’s team.

Braden Montgomery became the latest addition to the Red Sox farm system when Boston drafted him No. 12 overall in the 2024 MLB Draft. “I think it was an A+ pick for the Red Sox,” Baseball America's Peter Flaherty told NESN.com. “The hit and the power obviously stand out,” Flaherty explained. It's just gotten better and better, year over year between Stanford and Texas A&M. I saw it last summer on the Cape.

7/18/24 3:21 PM - MLB rumors: Twins looking for pitching at deadline, and they have a favorite. The Minnesota Twins entered the All-Star break 12 games above .500 and 4.5 games behind the first-place Cleveland Guardians in the AL Central. If the season ended today, the team would qualify for the playoffs with the second American League Wild Card berth. The Twins have won 13 of their last 20 games with a hot-hitting infield led by Carlos Correa and just enough pitching to get the job done.

Martin Maldonado (C - CHW)
7/18/24 9:33 AM - Promotion for infielder Brooks Baldwin among flurry of White Sox moves coming out of All-Star break. Changes are coming for the White Sox as the July 30 trade deadline draws near. A flurry of moves, including the somewhat surprising but not unwarranted farewell to struggling 37-year-old catcher Martin Maldonado who was designated for assignment Wednesday, set the tone. Triple-A Charlotte catcher Chuckie Robinson, 29, will be recalled Friday to back up Korey Lee, one of the bright spots of the first half, his .167/.200/.302 batting line in the last 30 games notwithstanding.

7/18/24 9:28 AM - Red Sox Offseason Target Reportedly Designated For Assignment. Martín Maldonado's time with the White Sox proved to be brief. Chicago on Wednesday designated Maldonado for assignment, per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal. The veteran catcher, who's amid his 14th Major League Baseball season, signed a one-year, $4.25 million deal with the South Siders back in early January. Boston reportedly was interested in Maldonado primarily due to his track record of handling pitching staffs, and franchise cornerstone Rafael Devers appeared to be keen on the idea of the club signing the backstop.

7/18/24 9:17 AM - Angels Starting Pitcher Should Be Trade Target For Cleveland Guardians. Time is running out for the Cleveland Guardians to add to their roster. MLB's trade deadline is just over two weeks away, and the Guardians still need one or two starting pitchers to help them finish off the regular season and for a potential playoff run. One pitcher who Cleveland's front office should target is Los Angeles Angels starter Tyler Anderson. Despite being in the twilight of his career, Anderson has a pitching run value of nine, ranking in the 83rd percentile.

St. Louis has been great lately and is worth investing in with the trade deadline right around the corner. The Cardinals' biggest need over the last year has been starting pitching and that still is the case despite signing Sonny Gray, Lance Lynn, and Kyle Gibson this past offseason.

As the Yankees look to recapture their early-season form, they'll hand the ball to Cole for their first game after the All-Star break when they host the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday in the opener of a four-game series. Cole (2-1, 5.40 ERA) made five starts after missing New York's first 75 games and experienced mixed results as he continued to build up his pitch count.
