Washington Nationals think Juan Soto is ready, can help Nats right now...

Juan Soto, 19, started the season at Low-A Hagerstown in the Nats’ system. He stepped to the plate for his first MLB at bat on Sunday afternoon in Nationals Park. Signed out of the Dominican Republic as a 16-year-old for $1.5M back in 2015, left-handed hitting outfielder Juan Soto played a 122 games and made 512 plate appearances in three seasons in the Nationals’ Minor League system before he was promoted to Washington in time for the series finale with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday afternoon. “He’s passed all the tests that we’ve thrown at him. We feel that because of the...

D-backs 1, Mets 4: Can’t spell “De La Rosa” without an L

D-backs 1, Mets 4: Can’t spell “De La Rosa” without an L

Clay Buchholz’s debut went very well. There ends the good news. Record: 25-21. Pace: 88-84. Change on 2017: -1. The Diamondbacks are now 5-13 in the month of May. It’s probably telling that my reaction to this fact is, “We have won five games?” Even those seem a long time ago, with the team having dropped nine of the last ten. Our starters have precisely one W to their names after 18 attempts in the month of May, that being Matt Koch’s victory over Justin Verlander and the Astros on May 6. With nine games left, they are 1-7 and need to win three of those to avoid tying the...

Nationals place Ryan Madson on 10-Day DL with chest strain...

Washington Post beat writer Chelsea Janes was first to report that veteran reliever Ryan Madson is the latest Nationals’ player to go on the DL. The hits keep coming for the Washington Nationals, who just got swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers in a two-day, three-game series in the nation’s capital, lost Howie Kendrick for the season to a ruptured achilles tendon, and have now placed reliever Ryan Madson on the DL with what Washington Post writer Chelsea Janes first reported is “a sore pectoral muscle”. Madson, 37, hadn’t pitched since going in three of four games during the...

The end of a (Herr)era: Cardinals 5, Phillies 1

The end of a (Herr)era: Cardinals 5, Phillies 1

A day of promise saw the end of Odubel Herrer’s on-base streak in a disappointing Phillies’ loss. The Phillies can win games. They’ve won a bunch of them so far, at a pace at which they haven’t since 2011, and that was a pretty good team. But the Phillies have also proven that, while they can break off a four-game series sweep or win a game late with a two-out comeback, despite their best efforts, they can’t seem to push past the Braves for the division lead. Part of that is just the swirling chaos of luck; the Braves play a role in it, too, and the two teams have only...

Yes, Anthony Kay says, there were nerves.

But it was his first one, his professional debut — nearly two years after...
