Full Agenda:

Shohei Ohtani health status update:

  • Ohtani has been cleared to hit starting immediately.1
  • After full recovery, should Angels continue to encourage dual role?
  • Nearly zero hype surrounding The Superfractor

Ronald Acuna activated from the DL.2

Kendry Morales hits walk-off HR against the Anaheim Angels in the 10th inning to give the Blue Jays a 7-6 win over the Angels.3

Chris Sale dominates Mariners in 7 innings. He allowed just four hits and struck out 13 batters.4

The Rangers make Adrian Beltre (39) available for trade. He can still hit and would be a great asset to any buyer. The Phillies are reportedly interested in Beltre.5

Trevor Bauer obliterates Tigers giving the Indians a 4-1 win. His record against the Tigers in 2018: 1.23 ERA, struck out 40 and walked just five.6

For Sugar Rush Night, the Erie Seawolves (AA affiliate of the Detroit Tigers) release a unique treat for attending fans – a hot dog served in a Cotton Candy bun with Nerds sprinkled on top.7

Card Doctoring: How ethics are defined and challenged.
