Phillies news

MLB news

  • Yesterday, we heard rumors of a major trade between the Cardinals and Rays that got baseball all excited because of one of the names that got leaked out. Turns out - it’s not all that interesting.
  • It’s salary arbitration avoidance season too! Several players have avoided the arduous process by agreeing to a deal for the 2020. You can find them all here, but by name:
    Chaz Roe
    Michael A. Taylor
    Cam Bedrosian
  • Statcast has a new toy for us to play around with. Welcome to the age of Outs Above Average!
  • The Astros also made a trade, but again - kind of an “eh” trade. Of course that guy will probably get Cy Young votes this year....
  • If you didn’t see this, watch this video. It’s insane.
  • An interesting look at scouts during this time of talking about minor league contraction.

Have a great weekend!
