What You Need to Know: Chris Sale's Revenge

3

Chris Mosch

The White Sox lefty tops All-Star Game skipper John Farrell's Red Sox, plus more from Wednesday and what to watch on Thursday.

The Wednesday Takeaway
When the rosters for next week’s All-Star Game were revealed on Sunday, arguably the most glaring omission from either side was the absence of Chris Sale. The lanky southpaw did miss a month of the season with a muscle strain in his pitching elbow, but on a start-by-start basis, he’s been one of the most dominant starting pitchers in baseball. The White Sox are well represented at the Midsummer Classic and Sale is still likely to make the trip to Target Field—he currently leads the American League Final Vote. But their skipper, Robin Ventura, still questioned how Sale’s gaudy numbers didn’t earn him an automatic ticket to the event.

What You Need to Know: Scherzer's First Gem

3

Chris Mosch

The Tigers righty earns his first career complete game in a duel with Chris Sale, plus more from Thursday and previews for the weekend.

The Thursday Takeaway
Thursday night’s clash between Chris Sale and Max Scherzer was so enticing that it inspired MLB.com to bring back #AceOff.

On a per-game basis, Sale has arguably been the best starting pitcher in baseball this season, but it was Scherzer who stole the show with a complete-game shutout to bust himself out of a string of shaky starts. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner had been knocked around in his previous four outings, serving up at least eights hits, a home run, and four runs in each of them.

What You Need to Know: Ray, the Rays, and the A's

0

Daniel Rathman

Robbie Ray has a rude awakening, the Rays and A's battle, and Chris Sale returns, plus what to watch this weekend.

The Thursday Takeaway
After holding the Astros to one run in 5 1/3 innings in his major-league debut and then keeping the Twins off the scoreboard for six frames in his second start, Robbie Ray might have come under the illusion that pitching in the big leagues is easy. If he did, the Rangers smacked the southpaw right out of it on Thursday afternoon.

What You Need to Know: No Sale

Daniel Rathman

White Sox ace Chris Sale deals with injury issues, plus the action from Monday and what to watch today.

The Monday Takeaway
When Travis Wood stepped to the plate in the bottom of the second inning of yesterday’s Diamondbacks-Cubs series opener, he had six career home runs and a chance to do what few major-league pitchers even dream of. The left-hander slugged half of those half-dozen big flies last year—including one each of the solo, two-run, and grand slam varieties. He needed a three-run blast to complete the home-run cycle.

Baseball Prospectus

Scouts' takes on Travis d'Arnaud, Chris Johnson, Mariano Rivera, Ian Kennedy, and other interesting players.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike.

What You Need to Know: Dodgers Back at Breakeven

0

Daniel Rathman

The Dodgers are poised on the precipice of a winning record for the first time since April.

The Wednesday Takeaways
With 30 teams in the major leagues, there are 435 possible matchups, and—since there are no ties in baseball—870 possible results. Entering play on Wednesday night, 869 of those outcomes had, at some point in history, been recorded. But the Pirates had never beaten the Athletics. They had played 11 times, including twice earlier this week, and the A’s had won each one.

Finally, in their 12th crack at the green and gold since 2002, the Buccos came out on top. Clint Hurdle’s club, which—now just 28 wins shy of the franchise’s first winning season in two decades—is well on its way to a more significant bit of history, rode the left shoulder of Francisco Liriano to a 5-0 shutout in the series finale.
