After the game, we learned that Danny Muno would be optioned to Triple-A in order to make room for Dillon Gee on the 25-man roster.

There was an update on David Wright yesterday, which basically resulted in there being no update. The third baseman is week to week but that hasn't stopped fans from voting for him for the All-Star game. Sandy Alderson is looking for hitting help on the trade market but not looking to replace Wright. Prior to Tuesday's game, Terry Collins said he doesn't expect the infield alignment to change.

Noah Syndergaard struggled last night but the standing ovation at the end of his start against the Phillies meant a lot. Speaking of young pitchers, Steven Matz is ready for the majors but there's no spot for him. The organization is trying to manage his present versus future.

Commissioner Rob Manfred cited Bartolo Colon at bats as a reason why pitchers should continue to hit. To be honest, I'd gladly sacrifice the Colon at bats in order to abolish all pitcher at bats. Sue me.

Terry Collins is still haunted by Johan Santana's no-hitter and it affects how he handles Matt Harvey.

Ron Darling has a pretty nice apartment in New York City's Upper East Side.

Around the NL East

The Nationals split a doubleheader with the Blue Jays, winning the opener 2-0 and losing the nightcap 7-3. Stephen Strasburg has a left trap strain.

Darin Ruf's walk-off hit helped the Phillies beat the Reds. Meanwhile, Domonic Brown is not hitting at all in Triple-A.

Three Marlins starting pitchers are set to begin rehab assignments.

Talking Chop looked back at the 2014 Braves draft.

Around the Majors

Should every baseball field be exactly the same shape? I kind of like every field being unique but can certainly see the argument in the opposite direction.

Dee Gordon is overrated, underrated, and off to a great start.

Good lord, Joey Gallo. Welcome to the big leagues.

Rob Manfred expects that MLB teams will go to Cuba in spring training beginning next year.

Giants' starter Jake Peavy has a nice house with a bowling alley.
