Trevor Stephan hits 100 on Toronto radar gun

Morning news and notes for Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2021

MLB: Cleveland Indians at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Teoscars defeated the Oscars by a score of 7-2 last night. Zach Plesac started for the Oscars, and delighted The People Who Complain About Modern Baseball by striking out zero and walking nobody.

After Zach, Trevor Stephan entered for the first time since July 24 and showed off his rested arm by maxing out at 100 mph. He threw 29 fastballs on the night, averaging 97.9 mph on each of them.

Sam Hentges also got into the ballgame. If you missed our reply thread a couple days ago, I bet you were stunned to learn that he has been on the major-league roster all this time.
