What You Need to Know: World Stops To Watch Kyle Hendricks Allow Hit
by
Emma Baccellieri

<< Previous Author Entries No More Author Entries

Kate wants to protect Joe Biagini from the world, Emma unlocks the secrets of an ancient ritual, and Trevor unearths new truths about Mike Trout.

Read the full article...

Mike Napoli warms up and the Rangers stay hot. Chris Davis just kept hitting go-ahead homers until the Tigers were subdued. Mike Moustakas was the only decent item in the place for the Royals.

The Tuesday Takeaway

There were several components to the Texas Rangers lackluster start this season—a weak bullpen, an injured Adrian Beltre, an ordinary stretch of poor luck—but chief among them was a severely struggling offense. No part of that offense struggled more severely than Mike Napoli: with a sub-.200 TAv, he’s been the team’s weakest everyday player at the plate. That’s a generally unenviable place to be, of course, but it’s a specifically and remarkably unenviable place to be for a first baseman-slash-designated hitter. And Napoli’s been there all season.

Jake Arrieta looks like his old, old self, Julio Urias flirts with a no-hitter, and the Cardinals and Orioles stay hot.

The Tuesday Takeaway

It took only half a season for Jake Arrieta to transform from relatively insignificant transaction jetsam to legitimate major-league ace; it hasn’t taken too much longer for him to transform into something confusingly between the two. Last year was full of performances that provoked “what’s wrong with Jake Arrieta?” and this year has brought only more of the same so far—though, at this point, those performances are not so much baffling as they are simply a new normal.

Four stories of how a baseball game started, and to stories about how they ended for Ryan Howard and Jeremy Guthrie.

Ervin Santana keeps his ERA below 1.00, Boston and Baltimore have more fireworks, and the Dodgers rough up Matt Moore.

The Tuesday Takeaway

Ervin Santana is striking out just about as many batters as he did last season—and the one before, and the one before that. He’s walking about just as many, too. He’s relying on his fastball a bit less than usual and his changeup a little more, but not dramatically so. Santana is, essentially, not doing too much that’s terribly different from anything he’s done before. He’s just getting some very different results.

King Felix looks shakier than ever, Trea Turner goes for the cycle, Danny Duffy dares everyone, and Eric Thames did it again.

The Tuesday Takeaway

After two seasons of slipping velocity, miscellaneous injury struggles, and other various signs of the aging process, Felix Hernandez is no longer the ace that was once crowned king. He’s still, for the most part, recognizably himself—just less consistently and often less effectively and simply less so. But decline in and of itself is neither interesting nor surprising; it’s the how and the when that provide that color. For Felix, this year seems potentially key to answering both. Were last season’s career-worst numbers truly the beginning of the end, or just an anomalous spike on a gentle downward slope? His first four starts of the season didn’t do so much to provide context there, but his fifth was a discouraging nod toward the former.

Miguel Gonzalez ends the Yankees' winning streak, the Mets' bullpen does it again, and Carlos Gomez robs Yonder Alonso.

The Tuesday Takeaway

The Yankees entered yesterday looking to preserve their eight-game winning streak, and they seemed pretty well-equipped to do so. They’d be pitting Luis Severino, coming off the single best game of his career, against Miguel Gonzalez, coming off a game in which he was pulled in the fifth inning.

Yoenis Cespedes homered three times, Michael Brantley walked off the White Sox, and a cat got stuck in the Marlins' home run sculpture.

The Tuesday Takeaway

Yoenis Cespedes’ first swing of the night was indicative of the type of game he was about to have in that it was extremely powerful. So powerful, in fact, that he fell down.
