What You Need to Know: Marvelous Marwin
by
Stacey Gotsulias

<< Previous Tag Entries Next Tag Entries >>

Mike Trout remains the best in baseball, Chris Sale puts his stamp on the history books again, Mike Clevinger tries his hand at a no-hitter, and Rio Ruiz clubs his first home run.

The Weekend Takeaway

The only way we know how to pay homage to the best player in baseball is by evoking the legends of the past. Mike Trout’s career has been Ruthian—the 49.7 WARP and .354 TAv, his Rookie of the Year decoration and, somehow, only two MVP distinctions—and now he’s incurring a level of fear from opposing managers and players that was most recently evident with Barry Bonds.

Mike Trout is so amazing that the Angels are actually decent.

Jose Berrios dominates the Rockies, Julio Teheran plunks Jose Bautista, Jarrod Dyson does it all, and the Rangers keep winning.

The Thursday Takeaway

The Rockies and Twins played a doubleheader on Thursday, and the two currently unlikely divisional leaders split the games, with the Rockies taking the matinee and the Twins taking the nightcap. The most interesting thing to happen in the two games was the performance of Jose Berrios in the second game of the twin bill. Berrios pitched a gem in his return to the bigs last week, and he picked up right where he left off with his performance on Thursday night.

Notes on Jahmai Jones, Sam Travis, Josh Staumont, Cody Reed, Austin Hays, Rhys Hoskins, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Sam Travis, 1B, Boston Red Sox (Triple-A, Pawtucket): 5-6, R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, K
An unfortunate ACL injury last May ended his season when Travis looked to be knocking on the door for some big-league time. Back healthy, Travis had a slow April but has turned it on in May. While the power might not play as a plus offering, it should still result in 10-15 home runs with lots of doubles in Fenway.

Lance McCullers pays tribute to Jose Fernandez in Miami, Freddie Freeman leaves with an injury, the Mets keep stumbling, and benches clear.

While it’s surely been impossible for Lance McCullers to forget longtime friend Jose Fernandez since Fernandez’s tragic passing last fall, the memories were fresh as ever when the Astros’ hurler made his first career start in Miami. As he’s done in every start this season, the 23-year-old wrote ‘16’—Fernandez’s number—in the dirt behind the pitching mound and put on a glove with Fernandez’s name inscribed on the side. This time around, McCullers also donned shoes custom-made for the start, when he’d finally be toeing the rubber on “Jose’s mound.”

Notes on Tyler Beede, Walker Buehler, Max Moroff, Zac Gallen, Dylan Cozens, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Max Moroff, 2B, Pittsburgh Pirates (Triple-A, Indianapolis): 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB, K
There were a lot of two-homer performances Wednesday, but Moroff is tied for the minor-league lead now with Chris DeVito (more on him below) with 12. While power hasn’t typically been a big part of his game (his prior career-high was eight) it is showing up in spades more than ever.

George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre discuss the fantasy impact of recent call-up’s Ian Happ and Bradley Zimmer. Then analyze a plethora of surprising early season performances including Freddie Freeman, Jake Arrieta, Dallas Keuchel and more.

Notes on Ozhaino Albies, Luis Ortiz, Rafael Devers, Nick Senzel, Nick Gordon, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Ozhaino Albies, SS, Atlanta Braves (Triple-A, Gwinnett): 3-3, 3 R, HR, RBI, 2 BB, SB
I know you guys were freaking out a little about Albies to start this season. While he did not get off to a great start, calm your horses. He will play the entire season at Triple-A as a 20-year-old, 6.7 years younger than the average player in the International League. Could he be in the big leagues this season? Sure. But let’s not rush this.

Carlos Carrasco vs. Chris Archer fizzles out, Terry Francona pranks Kevin Cash, Yuli Gurriel blasts a grand slam, and the Mets' bullpen implodes.

Notes on Eloy Jimenez, Mitchell White, Amed Rosario, Ronald Acuna, Kyle Funkhouser, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Eloy Jimenez, RF, Chicago Cubs (High-A Myrtle Beach): 2-4, R, HR, RBI
He’s baaaaaaaack. After losing out on the season’s first six weeks on account of a bum shoulder, the Cubs’ top prospect hasn’t missed a beat in going five for his first 11 with yesterday’s inaugural dinger. And it was a dinger, alright. This ball was, um, hit.
