Trevor Bauer returns to a mound

Morning News and Notes for August 29

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Cleveland Indians
He’ll get there eventually
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Indians whooped the Twins last night. It was the way the Minnesota Twins are supposed to be treated in the year 2018. Cookie Carrasco was fantastic again, as he so often has been since returning from the DL. Speaking of which, he attracted yet another line drive in this one, but this one got him in the glove. Phew.

The Indians could get another pitcher off the DL soon, as Trevor Bauer has shed his walking boot and is now throwing off a mound.

Around the Indians

• Lonnie Chisenhall will have somebody to rehab for

• Rosters expand soon

deGrom, Hamels, Nola and Scherzer

• Jacob deGrom faced Cole Hamels last night and you’ll never guess how many days it is taking for the Mets to get deGrom a lead

(It’s 1-1 in the top of the 10th and the game will resume today)

• Aaron Nola and Max Scherzer also faced off, and the Nats won but only because of Philly’s bullpen

• deGrom’s opponents pitch very well because they get to face the Mets offense

Around baseball

• The Jays are holding a Josh Donaldson showcase, which could really be taken to the next level if he plays RF

• Jose Bautista is now a member of the Philadelphia Santanas

• The Braves will experience one extra year of Tyler Flowers

Apparently the Twins have Michael Pineda

• And now the Mariners have LGFT Shawn Armstrong

• And the A’s won’t have Sean Manaea and Brett Anderson

• Lucas Giolito has been doing some gooder pitching of late

• That line has none of the consonance, assonance or slant rhyme that I thought it would

• Nailed “Manaea” on the first try tho

538 has another good baseball piece, this time on how defensive positions are evolving

• Mike Shildt (you can’t misspell a name that you don’t know) is now manager instead of interim manager
