Ducks on the Pond: The Grandy Man Can (Throw)

7

Chris Mosch

A look at how Curtis Granderson has bolstered his defense in right field.

It’s no secret that the Mets have struggled to get much value from their position players this year.

The next wave of defensive positioning is here, as the Astros are placing their outfielders in more extreme locations than we've seen in the past.

Chris Mosch

Position players pitching turns sour and more of yesterday's action, plus what to watch today.

The Tuesday Takeaway
Phillies fans haven’t had much to cheer about this season, as the club entered Tuesday’s game against the Orioles with an MLB-worst 22–43 record. Things got even gloomier in Baltimore, where Philadelphia ended up on the wrong side of history and even managed to turn a Jeff Francoeur pitching appearance from an exciting sideshow to a concerning event.

Beating the Shift

3

Chris Mosch

Matt Williams got mad at Bryce Harper for bunting with two strikes; what's the full story?

Bryce Harper has made his fair share of adjustments during his breakout 2015 season, from his newfound patience at the plate, to the hitch he added to his swing in May, to his recent tendency to drive the ball to all fields. Just about everything the 22-year-old has touched has turned to gold and he's been rightfully applauded for the shifts he's made at the plate that have turned him into one of the top hitters in the game.

What You Need to Know: Bryant vs. Harper

6

Chris Mosch

Not quite as scintillating as Ecks vs. Sever, but what are you going to do? Plus the rest of the action and today's best matchups.

The Tuesday Takeaway
This week's series between the Nationals and Cubs has been promoted as the first time Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant—who both hail from Las Vegas and have emerged as two of the game's brightest stars—have taken the field in opposition. It's always humbling to remember that Bryant is actually the elder of the two young players and makes you appreciate how amazing Harper's career has been so far.

What You Need to Know: Corey Math

3

Chris Mosch

Kluber, fresh off an 18-K performance, strikes out a dozen; pitchers duels turn into bullpen games, Carlos Gomez bounces back from a pitch to the face, and the best defensive play of the day.

The Monday Takeaway
The last time Corey Kluber took the hill he nearly made history. The Indians ace had 18 strikeouts heading into the ninth inning of last Wednesday’s game against the Cardinals but was pulled after 113 pitches without getting the chance to break the single-game strikeout record. So naturally, Kluber struck out the first five White Sox who took their hacks on Monday.

What You Need to Know: Hello Noah

1

Chris Mosch

Noah Syndergaard loses to an ace; Giancarlo Stanton has a jack; Strasburg flops; and the best defensive play of the day.

The Tuesday Takeaway
The debut of Noah Syndergaard was highly anticipated largely because the 6-foot-6 right-hander has the type of pedigree that gives him the potential to be one of the better pitchers in baseball down the road. However, Syndergaard is also 22 years old and is far from a finished product, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that the hard-throwing Texan ran into some issues against a talented Cubs lineup on Tuesday. It also shouldn’t come as a surprise that the guy opposite Syndergaard, Jake Arrieta, one-upped the rookie and pitched like a polished front-of-the-rotation starter, given that it’s pretty much what he’s been for the past year.

What You Need to Know: Thrice Harper!

7

Chris Mosch

Bryce goes yard, and yard, and yard again; Scherzer and Stanton have an epic showdown; Aroldis throws his changeup; and the TWO best defensive plays of the day.

The Wednesday Takeaway
It’s not as if Bryce Harper needed to prove himself to anybody. The 22-year-old entered Wednesday’s game against the Marlins the owner of a .294 True Average over 1,610 plate appearances, all while being younger than many of the game’s top prospects—Kris Bryant, Joc Pederson, Jorge Soler, and so on. And yes, the fun fact that he has yet to face a pitcher younger than him at any professional level still holds true.
