RHP Drew Smith is currently dealing with right shoulder soreness and doesn't have a timeline to return at the moment.
Why he's here: Once ranked the top prospect in all of baseball, Bogaerts has lived up to the massive hype that preceded him by becoming one of the best offensive shortstops in baseball and anchoring the Boston lineup in 2020 with a 300/.364/.502 line including 11 homers in 56 games. At 28 years old, Bogaerts finds himself a leader in the Red Sox clubhouse as one of the last centerpieces remaining from the 2018 World Series champion squad. -- Lee
It’s possible that Realmuto will be in the lineup Monday as the DH but Girardi was non-committal. The Phillies want to see him DH in at least one game before putting him behind the plate, and it’s not as if he’d catch a complete game his first time out. It stands to reason that the Phillies would build him up — perhaps five innings, then seven, then nine, though there’s no concrete formula.Detroit Tigers MLB Design Face Coverings

So much about Bohm’s approach and offensive package screams sustainability. He does not sell out for power, ever. He has an up-the-middle, line-drive philosophy that he’s able to execute, even against high velocity. He had 32 line-drive hits last season, second-most on the Phillies to Didi Gregorius’ 34, and remember, Bohm was not called up until about three weeks into an eight-week season. He’s even-keeled and was not intimidated by big moments as a rookie, leading all of MLB with a .452 batting average with runners in scoring position. He provided the offense a big lift.Philadelphia Phillies MLB Design Face Coverings

Also in focus is San Diego’s revamped rotation. With Yu Darvish, Blake Snell and Joe Musgrove leading the way, it’s expected to be one of the best in baseball, the product of general manager A.J. Preller‘s relentless wheeling and dealing.Tampa Bay Rays MLB Design Face Coverings
TAKEAWAY: Any pitcher carries obvious injury risk, but Strasburg’s medical history makes me unlikely to grab him so long as he’s seen as a Top 70 pick (Yahoo and NFBC returns slot him as such).New York Yankees MLB Design Face Coverings
