May 23, 2019

Who will go first in the 2019 MLB Draft? Nearly all scouting directors not picking No. 1 overall believe that Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman is the obvious best choice for the pick. And most believe he will end up being taken by Baltimore. But there’s still an alternative narrative:

May 23, 2019

While there is still plenty of baseball left to be played and things can always change quickly, we’ve gotten deep enough into the season to be able to pinpoint what a team’s identity is, and which clubs have a realistic shot at making a run at the postseason. In the

BALTIMORE -- Clint Frazier's first at-bat on Tuesday produced a barreled line drive that landed in the glove of left fielder Dwight Smith Jr., and as he returned to the third-base dugout, the Yankees outfielder permitted himself a chuckle.
