    Today at the Chicago Cubs, Washington's Jeremy Hellickson became the third pitcher since 1908 to pitch at least 5 2/3 innings, allow at least 2 earned runs, and allow no hits in a game his team lost.

    After getting his 46th save today with all 10 of his pitches being strikes, Seattle's Edwin Diaz is on pace for 63 saves, which would break Francisco Rodriguez's record of 62. Hypothetically, Diaz could break the record on a day Seattle is eliminated. Seattle trails Oakland by 1 game, and it will go up to 1.5 if Oakland holds on to their 8-4 lead. Diaz had 52 career saves before this year.

    The Angels released outfielder Ben Revere, who could perhaps be an interesting player to target for contending clubs that like the idea of adding a good defender and baserunning threat to their system. Revere, 30, hasnít seen the majors this year after seven-straight seasons of action at the gameís highest level. Heís slashing .277/.319/.406 with a pair of steals through 166 plate appearances at Triple-A. mlbtr

    Ben Revere?

    Tampa Bay's Ryne Stanek has 19 starters of 3 or fewer innings this year. From 1908 through 2017, the most starts of 3 or fewer innings in one year was 10 by 4 players, most recently Steve Arlin in 1974. The Yankees record since 1908 for the most starts of 3 or fewer innings is 8 by Sad Sam Jones in 1926 and George Pipgras in 1929.

    Seattle's record is 0.5 worse than the Cubs. Seattle has a chance to become the first team since the playoffs expanded to 8 teams to miss the playoffs with a better record than every team in the other league. The closest that came to happening was in 2007, when Detroit and Seattle missed the playoffs with 88 wins (so even if there were two wild cards then one would have missed the playoffs) and Arizona led the NL with 90 wins. In 1999, Cincinnati missed the playoffs with 96 wins and the Yankees led the AL with 98 wins, but Cincinnati lost a tiebreaker against the Mets and finished 2.5 games behind the Yankees.

    Position players have a 9.59 ERA this year. Their hit, strikeout, and walk rates are worse than normal pitchers, but their home run rates are especially bad. 13.6% of hits this year were home runs. 29.7% of hits allowed by position players were home runs.

    3:12 Do the Indians make any waiver deals before 9/1?
    Jeffrey Todd
    3:13 Think they will have to get another outfielder, or add elsewhere (Josh Donaldson?!?!) and bump Kipnis to the OF. It's all tweaking for the postseason, but no reason they won't be active.
    Nebraska Tim
    3:14 What is a realistic package that would land Josh Donaldson?
    Jeffrey Todd
    3:15 The Jays will not have much leverage. Still unclear how they will play it ... put him on waivers as soon as he's eligible? Wait until the very end of the month? Would they realistically pay him the rest of the way and hopefully be in position to give him a qualifying offer if the offer isn't good enough?
    3:16 Still hard to know how the situation will play out because we don't know when and how the moves will unfold that even get to the point of actual negotiations.

    David
    3:34 How awesome would a Yankee-Astros wild card be?
    Jeffrey Todd
    3:35 Would much rather see those two teams in a full series - Astros arms vs Yankees bats - culminating in a pedal-to-the-metal game 5 or 7.
    BTW, I have decided I'm on board with this wild card idea:
    3:36 Sounds super fun, captures loads of drama and even enhances

    Rays activated Pham off DL.


    https://www.tbo.com/blogs/rays/2018/...n-yankees-6-1/

    Pham activated
    LF Tommy Pham is being activated for Thursday's game after going 3-for-4 in a rehab game with short-season Class A Hudson Valley and having no issues with his previously fractured right foot. Ö The lat strain that sidelined RHP Wilmer Font in June proved to be serious enough that he might not pitch again this season. Cash said, "In all likelihood it will be really challenging to see him at any point the rest of this year.'' Ö After one setback, LHP Vidal Nuno (hamstring) has progressed enough to be close to starting a rehab assignment.

    Faria optioned
    To make room for LF Tommy Pham's return, RHP Jake Faria was optioned to Triple A. Faria started Wednesday but failed to get out of the fourth inning, throwing 66 pitches (40 strikes) to get 10 outs. He allowed three hits and walked two, then was followed by Chas Roe, Yarbrough and Diego Castillo. Faria made his first start since May 22, having missed two months with an oblique strain, then working twice in relief. "Jake Faria did a nice job of working through, navigating,'' Cash said. "I know he had some walks in there, but he made some pitches when he needed to.''

    Quote of the day
    "Unless I'm throwing a perfect game in 75 pitches, I think I'll probably get pulled.'''
    LHP Blake Snell, knowing he will be on a pitch/innings limit again Thursday, having retired all 15 hitters he faced in his previous start

    The Marlins host the Braves next week, their last meeting of the season. If he pitches one of those games, I wouldn't suggest that Jose Urena dig in too much in the batter's box.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Here's a lot about the Mets's 24-4 win at Philadelphia in Game 1 of a doubleheader:

    In the first game of a doubleheader, Philadelphia became the second team since 1908 to allow at least 11 earned runs and at least 11 unearned runs. The previous time it happened was also done by Philadelphia when they lost 26-23 at the Chicago Cubs on August 25, 1922. Philadelphia became the second team since 1908 to allow at least 13 earned runs and at least 11 unearned runs. The previous time it happened was also done by Philadelphia when they lost 26-23 at the Chicago Cubs on August 25, 1922. Philadelphia's Ranger Suarez, Mark Leiter Jr., and Roman Quinn became the third group of three teammates since 1908 to allow at least 7 runs. The previous two times were Baltimore's Brian Burres, Rob Bell, and Paul Shuey in a 30-3 loss hosting Texas in Game 1 of a doubleheader on August 22, 2007; and St. Louis Browns's Cliff Fannin, Cuddles Marshall, and Sid Schacht in a 29-4 loss at Boston on June 8, 1950. The Mets's Amed Rosario, Austin Jackson, Wilmer Flores, Michael Conforto, Jose Bautista, and Kevin Plawecki became the 73rd group of at least six teammates to have at least 3 hits. The only previous time the Mets did it was when seven Mets did it on July 4, 1985 in a 16-13 win at Atlanta that took 19 innings.

    Edit: Here's another rare event from that game:

    The Mets's Jose Bautista became the third substitute since 1908 to have 7 RBI. The previous two players to do that were Toronto's John Mayberry on June 26, 1978 hosting Baltimore and the Chicago White Sox's Roy Sievers on June 21, 1961 in Game 1 of a doubleheader hosting Cleveland.

    Alex Cobb pitched a complete game win at Cleveland. Cobb improved to 4-15. I wonder when the last time a pitcher had a winning percentage of .167 (1/6th) or worse with a significant amount of decisions and pitched a complete game win.

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/2...angeles-angels says Texas turned the first triple play without getting the batter out since Brooklyn against Cincinnati on June 3, 1912.

    Does that mean the batter gets a fresh at bat, leading off the next inning?

    A real oddity, that one. The story also says it was only the third 5-4 triple play in the expansion era (since 1961).

    Why would the batter lead off next inning? It's no different than any fielder's choice to end an inning.
