  • Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner left yesterday’s game with discomfort in his left groin after making an impressive play in the second inning, reports Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register. While there is no indefinite time on the IL assigned to Turner, manager Dave Roberts noted that he’ll be taking a few days off to rest. At that point, the team will evaluate what to do with Turner next. The veteran is slashing .289/.376/.491 with 20 home runs for the year. He’s currently signed to a two-year, $34M deal after re-signing with the Dodgers this past offseason.
  • Javier Baez left yesterday’s Mets game in the top of the fifth inning with tightness in his left hip. He appeared to be in several physical pain while batting, and is currently on a day-to-day basis, reports The Athletic’s Tim Britton. The team is hopeful that it doesn’t land him on the IL for an extended period of time. Despite the rough start to the team Baez faced after being dealt at the deadline by the Cubs, any more devastation to the Mets lineup would not be ideal. Baez is already embracing the culture of being on the Mets by getting injured. Gotta love a guy dedicated to his new team.
  • Here’s a look at the potential trade market for Carlos Santana, because we know you were all desperately curious.
  • Where has Alcides Escobar been all our lives?
  • The Angels were already having a rough time of it with Mike Trout’s return from a calf injury getting perennially pushed back, now they will be without another bat that they were counting on this season. Anthony Rendon has been dealing with a right hip impingement and will have surgery that will end of his season.
  • The Dodgers made news yet again yesterday. They decided to take a flyer on 37 year old Cole Hamels as they decided to sign him to a one year, $1 million deal.
  • In news that is bad for the Rays but not necessarily unexpected, right-hander Tyler Glasnow will undergo Tommy John surgery on Wednesday, officially ending his 2021 season and likely ruining his chances of pitching in 2022. Glasnow, 27, has been stellar since joining the Rays in July 2018, and it will be a real challenge for Tampa to get back to the World Series this year without him in the rotation. Glasnow hasn’t pitched since mid-June, when he suffered a UCL tear, though he spent the last six weeks trying to rehab the injury before committing to surgery.

We know. Things got a little wild at the Friday deadline, and we’re not talking about whatever you did at Happy Hour. However, like the Happy Hour drink specials, this deadline snuck up fast with little warning and then was non-stop chaos for a few hours of unpredictability. Here’s a little recap of who is going to pop up on a different team, leading you to say, “What? No way! When?”.
