Morning news and notes for Wednesday, April 21, 2021
Your favorite baseball team lost last night and is now back to .500 again at 8-8. It was a pretty typical 2021 game for Cleveland and Chicago, filled with poor batting by the former and poor defense by the latter. This one was a little different because Carlos Rodón surrendered both hits and runs, but other than that, blah. Jordan Luplow is awesome.
• Adam Eaton was suspended one game for his actions against Cleveland last week. He is appealing.
• MLB and MLBPA met to discuss a future agreement on how to pay said players.
• Similar to society as a whole, players across baseball have been struggling with their mental health as of late.
• Shohei Ohtani returned to the mound last night and struck out 7 in 4 innings.
• TIL that Mickey Moniak is in the majors.
• Juan Soto was placed on the injured list.
• Yasiel Puig landed in the Mexican League.
