What You Need to Know: Bummed!

2

Daniel Rathman

DeGrom DeGrominates, the surprisingly good Tigers' bullpen is unsurprisingly bad, Bumgarner beats Kershaw again, and the best defensive play of the day.

The Thursday Takeaway
When Jacob deGrom served up three home runs to the Yankees on April 24th, then gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings to the Mets six days later, some wondered if regression or an injury was afoot. A rollercoaster first month isn’t what prognosticators expected from deGrom after his outstanding rookie campaign, but it’s what they got. And so, the cries of “The Yankees broke deGrom!” rang out and wouldn’t die, not even after he struck out nine Orioles in seven innings on May 6th.

What You Need to Know: As Predicted!

Daniel Rathman

The Nationals find first place, Randy Choate reaches first base, the Brewers go back-to-back-to-back, and the best defensive play of the day.

The Tuesday Takeaway
Hope springs eternal when teams break camp and head to their respective openers with 0-0 records. Every team, from the heaviest favorites to the longest of long shots, is in first place on the first day of the season.

What You Need to Know: Bombered!

Daniel Rathman

Everybody homered. Literally, everybody. Congratulations on your homer.

The Monday Takeaway
For the first month and change of the 2015 season, Carlos Beltran looked every bit of 38, the age he turned on April 24th, two days before his third straight 0-fer sent his OPS plunging below .500. Playing in over 2,000 major-league games had taken a toll on the switch-hitter’s bat speed, and hitting quality fastballs was no longer a picnic, by Beltran’s own admission.

What You Need to Know: HIS NAME IS... !

4

Daniel Rathman

The Nationals snap out of it, Bumgarner beats Kershaw again, and the defensive play and non-play of the day.

The Tuesday Takeaway
The Washington Nationals’ hero on Tuesday wasn’t Bryce Harper or Jayson Werth. It wasn’t Stephen Strasburg or Jordan Zimmermann. Nor was it Ian Desmond or Denard Span, though the latter went 5-for-6 with three doubles and a big fly in a tremendous evening atop the order.
