Happy Sunday, everyone!
Indians 4, Royals 2
Reyes hit a mighty dinger, Clevinger had another good start, and Hand had a fairly uneventful ninth inning. Aside from Ramírez’s injury, it was a pretty good day.
Indians players and getting hurt in games late in the season against division rivals. Name a more iconic duo.
I seriously cannot believe that Carlos Carrasco may pitch for the Indians again this year.
Around the league
- Pablo Sandoval will have Tommy John surgery.
- The Dodgers may give Ryu some extra rest down the stretch in preparation for October.
- Francisco Cervelli made quite the impression in his first appearance with the Braves.
- Jhoulys Chacin has been designated for assignment.
- Max Muncy admitted to flopping during a controversial sequence in the ninth on Saturday.
- Brandon McCarthy has the right take on these Player’s Weekend uniforms:
if you're a starting pitcher who gives up a ton of runs in the 1st, gets pulled and ruins the game for everyone else, you have to talk to the media. In that fashion I think whoever is responsible for the 'players weekend' unis needs to stand and answer for the mess they've made.— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) August 24, 2019
