Acuna Moncada?

Hitter of the Day:

Kevin Cornelius, 1B/3B, Chicago Cubs (Double-A, Tennessee): 4-5, 3 R, 2B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, K
Cornelius isn’t a prospect, but he had a good day, it was also a light day for the minor leagues. He was selected in the rule 5 minor league portion of the draft this past season. You know who else was taken as a Rule 5 minor leaguers? Justin Bour.

Rubbing Mud: This is Really All We Know: The Easts

2

Matthew Trueblood

Have we learned more than we knew at the beginning?

A few years ago, I tried a thing for a month or so where I wrote up power rankings of teams using only as many words as they each had games played. I did this once a week for, I don’t know, maybe a month. It was fun the first time, but not the fifth. The point, which I thought cut cleanly and sharply through the piece in the first installment but eventually went a little dull, was that we really learn about teams very slowly.

Players’ skill levels change faster than ever before, I think, relative to the rest of the league. Guys get hurt and rookies get promoted. There’s all of this data flowing past us all the time, but often our best estimate of a team’s true talent remains the one we made before the season, when we were looking at all of those things—all the possible injuries, improvements, adjustment periods, the big picture—and the data was standing still.

They won't be boys forever, and winter is coming.

We’re baaaaaaaaack.

Nicholson had been a rock in the Cubs' lineup since his arrival with the team in 1939.

Suddenly there's a race at the top and at the bottom.

Kyle Freeland pitches a two-hitter, Marcus Stroman showcases a devastating slider, Aaron Judge gears up for the Home Run Derby, and Ji-Man Choi does the splits.

The Weekend Takeaway

Kyle Freeland didn’t look like a no-hitter pitcher last Tuesday. After a shallow third-inning single vaulted the Reds to a 4-1 lead over the Rockies, manager Bud Black visited his rookie starter on the mound.

Flu-Like Symptoms: What to Expect After the Break

2

Rob Mains

No, not the way you're thinking .

The All-Star break gives us a few days off from the daily drumbeat of baseball, an opportunity to take stock of what’s happened so far and assess how the rest of the season is likely to play out. Can the surprising Brewers continue their improbable run, or will the disappointing Cubs finally come to life? Will the Astros and Dodgers give us the first pair of 100-win teams since 2004, and can they play deep into October? Will Mike Trout resume his MVP trajectory? Will Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger lead their leagues in home runs as rookies? Will MLB come clean about the ball being juiced?

Notes on Amed Rosario, Adonis Medina, Renato Nunez, Lucas Sims, Wander Javier, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Amed Rosario, SS, New York Mets (Triple-A Las Vegas): 4-5, 2 R, 2 SB
Amed must’ve heard Sandy Alderson talking about how he wasn’t quite ready yet at our Citi Field event, because after scuffling through most of June he’s really started to tear cover from ball this month to the tune of 10 hits in his last 21 at-bats. Soon come.

Milwaukee stays ahead of Chicago, Nationals Park has a dry delay, Ichiro Suzuki sets another record, and Jose Osuna throws everyone out.

The Thursday Takeaway

George Bissell and Jeffrey Paternostro, BP’s senior prospect writer, discuss the BP Midseason Top 50 prospects list, and Eric Roseberry #FriendOfThePod stops by to draft the biggest second half fantasy storylines.

Dellin Betances can't find the strike zone, Alex Wood mows down the Diamondbacks, the Rays' bullpen implodes, and Jon Gray goes 467 feet.

The Wednesday Takeaway:

Through the Yankees’ spending splash in 2014, painful collapse in 2015, sluggish start and subsequent unthinkable rebuild in 2016, and electrifying return in 2017, the only constant has been Dellin Betances. Now, the trade rumors are finally quieting, the million moving pieces are settling down, and the Yankees have a concrete, and incredibly bright, long-term future. But something feels off—the bedrock of the franchise is wavering.
