Samer Kalaf Aug 16, 2017. 12 comments

Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer had been scheduled to pitch in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Blue Jays, but his start has been pushed back to Game 3 after he injured his hand, reportedly messing with a drone.

The right-hander needed stitches after he cut his right pinkie finger while fixing the drone, according to team president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti:

Josh Tomlin will start Game 2.

Indians manager Terry Francona took the news in stride:

Hey, it happens—more frequently to Trevor than others.

Before Mets slugger Pete Alonso participated in the Home Run Derby during the all-star break, he earned a little moment with this seemingly off-the-cuff quip: “It doesn’t matter how much jelly you have in the jar, it’s about how you spread it on your English muffin.” That’s funny. Well, guess what? That shit came from one of Jimmy Fallon’s...

Try explaining a balk to an alien or to a small child, or, hell, to me. You can’t do it.) I don’t care. I love the fact that baseball has planned for every contingency...

The Braves became the target of many people’s ire earlier this month when they signed Ozzie Albies to a seven-year, $35 million contract extension that will, if Albies turns into the kind of player he looks destined to become, go down as one of the most appallingly team-friendly contracts in baseball history.
