Eli Morgan was supposed to make his clear weather MLB debut today, but then the forecast turned awful. Now Cleveland decided they will start Jean Carlos Mejía instead. 0-for-2.

Around baseball

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. left San Diego’s ballgame with right oblique tightness.
  • Jack Flaherty also has an oblique injury, and this one has been deemed significant.
  • If you’ve been wondering how MLB’s poor hitting was viewed in 1968, Emma Baccellieri has an article for you.
  • It’s time to start reaching out to other teams, or as the Indians call it, “See what extra guys San Diego currently has.”
  • Francisco Lindor is hitting the ball hard, but is not hitting line drives.
