- Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud has suffered a partial UCL tear in his throwing elbow and may need Tommy John surgery.
- Not only did we see the first bench-clearing brawl of the season Wednesday, but we got two of them on the same day! The Rockies and Padres went at each other in the afternoon, then the Yankees and Red Sox kicked their rivalry up a notch with their fight.
- The Nationals have designated catcher Miguel Montero for assignment.
- Speaking of the Nationals, star Bryce Harper was caught on camera double blow drying his hair, which became a Twitter moment thanks to his younger brother Bryan.
- There are a lot of new names in new places this season, so we decided to take a look at 10 players and how they are doing on their new teams.
- The Rays added some veteran outfield depth on Tuesday, acquiring Jeremy Hazelbaker from the Diamondbacks.
- Angels right-hander JC Ramirez will miss the rest of this season — and almost certainly the beginning of the 2019 campaign — after it was determined that he’ll need Tommy John surgery.

The 72 year-old Hall of Famer Mays greets his godson at home plate with a torch studded with $18,000 of diamonds forming the numbers 660, 25, which is Bonds’ number, and 1, the number to needed move ahead.
