Elly De La Cruz (SS/3B - CIN)
6/16/24 6:11 AM - Snoop Dogg's perfect reaction to Reds' Elly De La Cruz's 'rocket' arm. Elly De La Cruz is a force of nature. The Cincinnati Reds shortstop has been electrifying ever since he made his MLB debut last season. On the plate, De La Cruz brings a rare combination of speed and power that makes him tough to face. On defense, he's got the athleticism to make plays from shortstop while rocking a cannon arm.

Ian Happ (OF - CHC)
6/16/24 4:27 AM - Cubs, Cardinals jockey for position in NL Central. Ian Happ will try to build on what he hopes was a slump-busting performance when the host Chicago Cubs wrap up a three-game set with the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Happ blasted a three-run homer on Saturday, going 2-for-3 with a walk to lead Chicago to a 5-1 victory over St. Louis. The Cardinals saw their three-game winning streak end just one day after blanking the Cubs 3-0 in the series opener. Entering Saturday, Happ had gone just 1-for-24 (.042) over his past seven games.

Shota Imanaga (P - CHC)
6/16/24 2:15 AM - Shota Imanaga is becoming a star for the Cubs. How did MLB not see this coming?. Shota Imanaga of the Chicago Cubs stood on the pitcher's mound during a recent bullpen session. Even in that setting he did not look like an emerging star. He does not throw 100 mph (160 kph). He does not tower over opponents. No one expected Imanaga to be this good, this fast. Not even the Cubs, who believed in him more than most. The organization began compiling an Imanaga scouting database in 2018. But when the Japanese pitcher became available last winter, the Cubs did not jump out early and seize the negotiations. Even Imanaga understood his transition would be challenging. Yet, he has become one of MLB's most valuable players so far this season. Thirteen starts into a four-year, $53 million

Taijuan Walker (P - PHI)
6/15/24 7:56 PM - Phillies' Taijuan Walker gets real about struggles with major asset after loss to Orioles. The Philadelphia Phillies have one of the best rotations in the big leagues in the 2024 season. On Saturday, Walker struggled anew on the mound, as he gave up a total of three earned runs on six hits through 5.2 innings of duty in a 6-2 loss at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. For what it's worth, Walker still managed to lower his season ERA from 5.40 to 5.33. It seems that Walker is still not confident with his splitter, which was so effective for him during his first season in a Phillies uniform back in 2023.

Bryse Wilson (P - MIL)
6/15/24 7:00 PM - Brewers' Bryse Wilson gets blunt about 'messed up' Corbin Burnes trade. This is supposed to be a rebuilding season for the Milwaukee Brewers (41-29), or at minimum a gap year. Fans were optimistic about the future, but it felt unlikely for this club to hold a six and a half game divisional lead at any point in 2024 after losing a big chunk of its identity in the offseason. Although the general manager-skipper duo of David Stearns and Craig Counsell undeniably played a sizable role in the franchise's frequent playoff trips, those positions can be effectively replaced if an owner is looking in the right places. Trading Corbin Burnes to the Baltimore Orioles (46-24) in February addressed the Brewers' long-term needs, but it should have quieted any realistic notion of them snagging the 2024 NL Central crown.

In his first five games, entering Saturday night's game against the Pirates at Coors Field, Amador was hitting 3-for-18 (.167) with five strikeouts, no walks and one stolen base.

Andre Pallante (P - STL)
6/15/24 5:03 PM - Cardinals, Andre Pallante left with plenty of what ifs after 5-1 loss to the Cubs. One pitch or one inch can produce a big shift in how an outing unfolds for a pitcher who relies on groundballs and his defense like Cardinals right-hander Andre Pallante. When Pallante walked off the diamond in the middle of the fourth inning muttering to himself and shaking his head on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field, that image — a snapshot in time — encapsulated the plight of a pitch-to-contact hurler on a day when key moments didn't break in his favor. Pallante handed the ball to Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol after just 3 1/3 innings. The factors that contributed to the brevity of that outing included an inning-altering ball-strike call that extended a pivotal at-bat, a couple subsequent pitches Pallante would've liked to execute better, and a well-placed roller through an infield on the move.

While the Mets are likely out of contention for a playoff spot, they may want to push the reset button and look to stock their farm system by trading star first baseman Pete Alonso – who is considered the biggest power bat to be traded by Jim Bowden of The Athletic.

The Braves' bats were historically relentless in 2023, totaling 307 home runs, a .276 batting average, .501 slugging percentage and .845 OPS. Every batter except for the slumping Adam Duvall recorded a hit (12 total), as they reminded the home crowd how lethal a team this can be when it is scattering the ball all over the field.

For a major league player, landing a spot in the All-Star Game is about talent, statistics, popularity, reputation, name recognition and the team you play on. For the Rockies, who are on pace to lose more than 100 games for the second consecutive season, only the first two aforementioned criteria (talent and statistics) will come into play this season. Truth be told, the Rockies will likely have just one required representative at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on July 15.

Nick Fortes (C - MIA)
6/15/24 12:09 PM - Nationals teammates get into physical altercation in dugout. It's been a few years since the Washington Nationals were a legitimate threat in Major League Baseball, and frustrations seem to be boiling. In the top of the second in a game against the more-lowly Miami Marlins, Miami catcher Nick Fortes hit a chopper down the third base line that was grabbed by Nick Senzel on a backhand. Senzel made the long throw, but Fortes beat it by a step. Apparently, pitcher MacKenzie Gore felt the same way because he approached Senzel in the dugout after the inning.

The lone blemish came against Royals catcher Salvador Pérez, who crushed a three-run homer in the fourth inning. Aside from the 437-foot blast, Stone settled in, completing his fourth outing of a full seven innings.

Michael Harris (OF - ATL)
6/15/24 10:58 AM - [Last Word on Sports] - Another Braves Outfielder Snakebit With Injury. Just when the Atlanta Braves offense looked like it had life again, another injury in their outfield struck. Michael Harris II left Friday night's 7-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays with left hamstring tightness. After a leadoff single in the first, Harris took third on an Ozzie Albies double and was visibly in pain. He left the game moments later, replaced by J.P. Martinez, who stayed in for the remainder of the game. Harris will have an MRI on Saturday but has already been placed on the 10-day injured list. Another Braves Outfielder Snakebit With Injury added OF Ramón Laureano to the major league roster after putting CF Michael Harris II on the 10-day IL with a strained left hamstring following Friday’s game. To make room on the 40-man roster, Spencer Strider was transferred to the 60-day IL. — David O'Brien (@DOBrienATL) Before Harris’s injury on Friday, it had seemed the center fielder was starting to find a rhythm. His single in the first inning extended his hitting streak to five games. Harris is slashing .250/.295/.358 with five home runs and an 84 wRC+ in 67 games this season. Another question that the Braves will have to figure out again is the leadoff spot in the order. Harris has been splitting time with Ozzie Albies since the Ronald Acuña Jr. injury, as he was the leadoff option against right-handed pitching. It seems likely that Albies will be the primary leadoff hitter because he is a switch hitter. Former Oakland Athletic Reuniting With Olson and Murphy With Harris landing on the 10-day injured list, the Braves selected outfielder Ramon Laureano's contract to the major league roster. With this move, the Braves officially moved right-handed pitcher Spencer Strider to the 60-day injured list. This move allowed for an open spot on the 40-man roster. The today selected OF Ramón Laureano to the major league roster and placed OF Michael Harris II on the 10-day injured list with a strained left hamstring. To make room on the 40-man roster, Atlanta transferred RHP Spencer Strider to the 60-day injured list. — Atlanta Braves (@Braves) Laureano began this season on the Cleveland Guardians' roster but was eventually released after 31 games. He was released on May 25 after hitting just .143/.265/.603, with one home run and four RBI. Atlanta signed Laureano four days later, on May 29, to a minor league contract. The Braves seem to be going with the hot hand, as Laureano has been on fire in Triple-A Gwinnett. In 14 games, he is slashing .362/.424/1.027 with three home runs in 58 at-bats. Kelenic leading off, playing center, and newcomer Laureano in right with MH2 on the IL for . — David O'Brien (@DOBrienATL) With this promotion back to the major leagues, Laureano will be greeted by familiar faces in the clubhouse. Matt Olson and Sean Murphy were teammates with Laureano for the Oakland Athletics. All three played together during the 2019–2021 seasons, with Olson being the first to join Atlanta in 2022.

6/15/24 10:00 AM - Philadelphia Phillies Could Target Angels First Round Draft Pick in Trade. The Philadelphia Phillies are certainly going to be buyers ahead of the trade deadline. Bullpen arms are always a possibility for any contending team no matter how good of a unit is already in place, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the Phillies add a backend arm. With Johan Rojas not quite finding consistency at the plate, Nick Castellanos having a down year, and Brandon Marsh currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, there is a chance Dave Dombrowski could look to bring in an extra option. If that's the case, that likely means they would have to do something with Cristian Pache, who has performed well during his limited opportunities, and demote David Dahl, who also has impressed since being called up.

Washington, which has won six of seven, took the series opener 8-1 on Friday night behind seven strong innings from MacKenzie Gore, who was shoved by third baseman Nick Senzel after the top of the second inning. Gore didn't think Senzel put enough on his throw to first with a runner on third and two outs, allowing light-hitting catcher Nick Fortes to beat out the throw and Tim Anderson to score from third, giving the Marlins an early 1-0 lead.
