Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s a really, really slow news day for baseball.
- Yu-Cheng Chang, #4 Tribe prospect (according to MLB Pipeline), played a crucial role in a match-up victory against Cardinals #3 prospect Jack Flaherty:
Around the league
- The San Diego Padres have traded Yangervis Solarte to the Toronto Blue Jays.
- People keep saying that the Dodgers will trade Yasiel Puig, but will they?
- Donovan Mitchell, a rookie for the Utah Jazz, once dreamed of playing baseball instead of making his mark in the NBA.
- Mark Purdy displayed his Hall of Fame ballot yesterday and it’s...strange:
Ballot #169 is from Mark Purdy. Hoffman gains. Vlad (94.1%) has pulled ahead of Thome (93.5%). If my estimate of <439 ballots cast is correct, then Chipper will not surpass Griffey's 99.3% record. Finally, Omar Vizquel is now the only candidate perfect on ballots of 3 or fewer. pic.twitter.com/lVikXZC5DX— Ryan Thibodaux (@NotMrTibbs) January 7, 2018
