Have you seen our most recent FanPost Friday? We want to know: What top prospect are you most excited about debuting?
- Yoenis Cespedes continues to get plagued by injuries. This time, the Mets star outfielder has landed on the 10-day disabled list with a hip flexor strain. Will he be healthy and ready to go when he returns?
- Stephen Piscotty just keeps making plays, as he ended up in the stands after making an outstanding catch during the Athletics’ game against the Red Sox.
- Apparently, Joey Gallo is not happy playing third base for the Rangers.
- Robinson Cano received an 80-game suspension for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drug policy — a ban that seems likely not only to severely hurt the Mariners’ playoff chances, but also significantly limit the 35-year-old’s chances of getting into the Hall of Fame once his playing days are done. For what it’s worth, Cano’s time spent on the DL while recovering from a broken right hand will count toward his suspension, but he’ll be ineligible for the postseason if Seattle ends its 16-season playoff drought.
- The Diamondbacks just continue to be torn apart by injuries, as center fielder A.J. Pollock — far and away their early-season MVP — will miss 4-8 weeks with a fractured thumb. He joins Randall Delgado, Shelby Miller, Robbie Ray, Taijuan Walker, and Jake Lamb on the disabled list.
