2014 Az Fall League participants for the #Indians INF/C Tony Wolters OF Jordan Smith RHP Dylan Baker LHP Nick Maronde RHP Louis Head— Cleveland Indians (@tribeinsider) August 26, 2014
• Michael Brantley has the best stolen base percentage among qualified batters and Dustin Pedroia has the worst.
• I don't think this has appeared in a news and notes yet, so here is August Fagerstrom's take on Trevor Bauer's Effective Velocity beliefs.
• Cody Allen did not appear in last night's game despite it being a save situation. But don't be alarmed, it was just a second day off after 3 straight appearances. Here's more from Bastian on last night's game.
• I bet you've never heard this one before: Carlos Quentin is about to be shut down for the season.
• For some reason, the Mariners made another long-term commitment to #JackZ.
• The Toronto Blue Jays continued their slide last night against Boston. Entering the 11th inning tied at 4, the Blue Jays allowed 7 runs in the top of the 11th. The 3 they scored in the bottom of the inning was not enough to stop them from falling to .500.
• Yordano Ventura was already scratched from his start today. Liam Hendriks will take his place. Hendriks is somehow still only 25!?
• Zach Walters hit another home run yesterday. Yawn. Anyways...
Of Walters' 6 HRs with the Tribe ... + 4 have given the team the lead + 2 have tied the game #Clutch— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) August 27, 2014
