When it comes to creating lineups every day, Luis Rojas is partying like it’s 1998.

In a bit of news that solidly meets the threshold of “Not What You Want”, the Mets placed Michael Wacha on the injured list with shoulder inflammation.

Thankfully, Wacha seems confident that he can return to the team once his time on the injured list is up.

Both Robinson Cano and Jake Marisnick have been taking live at bats at the Mets’ alternate site.

Jacob deGrom described what some thought to be a blister as a “hot spot” which sounds much more fancy.

Around the National League East

Aaron Boone is not a fan of Phillies fanatics recreating their favorite segment from Jackass: The Movie while the Yankees are trying to bat.

A difficult time deploying the tarp resulted in the Nationals’ game against the Orioles being suspended.

The Atlanta Braves sliced and diced the Phillies in both ends of their doubleheader by the scores of 5-2 and 8-0.

Around Major League Baseball

The Yankees placed Giancarlo Stanton on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain and called up Thairo Estrada to take his place.

Following the acquisition of Luis Basabe from the White Sox, the Giants placed old friend Jordan Humphreys on the restricted list.

As COVID-19 cases continue to plague the Cardinals, we are approaching the point where MLB will have to decide if the continuation of their season is truly essential.

For the upcoming series against the Pirates, MLB has decided that those games are not essential at the moment.

While none of the Cardinals are in the hospital as of Monday morning, manager Mike Shildt revealed that some of the positive cases necessitated a trip to the emergency room.

A guideline-breaking battle broke out between the Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics after Astros’ coach Alex Cintron decided to start talking incredibly spicy towards Ramon Laureano and his mother.

Being a coach and also unmasked, calls for harsh punishment towards Cintron have grown as the brawl has been analyzed.

Following an early exit, Madison Bumgarner’s back will be the subject of examinations to determine his status.

Carrol Hardy, the only man to ever pinch hit for Ted Williams, died at 87.

This Date in Mets History
