Mets place Michael Wacha on injured list with right shoulder inflammation

Photo by Al Bello/ The Mets’ already-thin rotation suffers another injury. The Mets have placed right-handed pitcher Michael Wacha on the injured list with inflammation in his right shoulder.

While his first start went well, Wacha struggled in his second and third starts, giving up a total of nine earned runs in nine innings of work. Signed by the Mets over the offseason, Wacha clearly had...

Here’s a better way to do the extra-inning runner on second base

Here’s a better way to do the extra-inning runner on second base

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ This idea would make it an actual baseball play rather than “placed runner.” Last Sunday, the Cubs played an extra-inning game for the first time under the “placed runner” rule, where a “ghost runner” begins each extra inning at second base. There had been warnings that this would create the same thing in every extra inning: the runner sacrificed to third base, then (perhaps) score on a sacrifice fly. That hasn’t happened; in the Cubs/Pirates game last week there were walks, a stolen base, a play at the plate and the winning run scoring...

Realmuto homers as Arrieta shines; Phillies shutout Braves, 5-0

J.T. Realmuto may not want to vocalize his thoughts about his impending free agency, so instead, he's letting his play on the diamond speak loudly. He homered on Saturday night with a solo shot in the fourth inning, his fourth of the season, as part of a four-run inning in an impressive 5-0 shutout of the Braves at Citizens Bank Park.Through eight games, Realmuto is batting .333 (9-for-27) with four home runs, nine RBIs and a 1.178 OPS this season.“That’s J.T., man,” said Bryce Harper, who finished the night 2-for-4 with a run scored. “He’s out there with a vengeance right now....
