A strange day in Philadelphia as a trade happened, then didn’t. A trade for the visiting was thought to have happened, but didn’t. And the Phillies got an inside-the-park home run, but didn’t win.
And Matt Moore remains on the team.
On to the links.
- Mickey Moniak has been hot while in the minor leagues, so we have to ask the question: is he in the team’s plans or a trade candidate?
- Baseball America has updated their top 30 prospect list just in time for trade season ($).
- Matt Moore’s night reaffirms that the team needs more than one starter at the trade deadline.
- Trea Turner was thought to have been traded or injured when he left the game early yesterday, but it turns out he tested positive for Covid.
- The Mariners and Astros made a very surprising trade yesterday that the Mariners’ players were not happy about at all.
- Trevor Bauer’s leave has been extended again.
- Stephen Strasburg is going to miss the rest of the year again with thoracic outlet surgery. Feel bad for the guy.
