Bryan Stow to be moved to San Francisco hospital

3 Comments

Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium on March 31, is stable enough that he will transferred to a San Francisco hospital, according to the Associated Press.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported earlier this week that Stow could potentially be moved closer to home.

Stow remains in a coma and is in critical condition, but he’ll be transferred to San Francisco General and Trauma Center as early as Monday morning. He has been treated at the Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Medical Center since the attack.

Here’s part of a message written by Stow’s family on their website:

“The day has finally come! Bryan is now stable enough to bring home up north. This time is so bittersweet…we are happy we get to bring Bryan home.”

The search for the attackers was bolstered this week after approximately 200 billboards with sketches of the suspects were unveiled in the Los Angeles area. Officials are currently offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to arrests and convictions.

Six-year old boy reports the Indians want to give Francisco Lindor a seven-year contract

The substance of the report is not shocking. Francisco Lindor is one of baseball’s brightest young stars and the Cleveland Indians would, no doubt, wish to lock him up for an extended period of time. The surprising part is the guy who reported that, yes, the Indians are working to get Lindor a seven-year extension.

That guy: six-year-old Brody Chernoff, son of Indians general manager Mike Chernoff. Brody was invited into the team’s broadcast booth during the ninth inning of their game against the Chicago White Sox. Indians announcer Tom Hamilton asked, no doubt jokingly, if his working on anything interesting. Brody:

“He’s trying to get, um, Lindor to play for seven more years,”

Again, not shocking. It would’ve been way worse if Brody had said “Dad’s working on a three-way deal that’ll send Naquin to an NL team in order to affect a three-way trade that’ll land us Verlander without having to deal directly with a divisional rival.” But I imagine Dad still would’ve preferred he not mention that.

Bill Whitehead of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that the Braves have signed reliever David Hernandez to a minor league contract on Sunday. He’ll report to spring training as a non-roster invitee.

Hernandez, who turns 32 years old in May, signed a minor league contract with the Giants in February. He requested and was granted his release on Friday when he learned he wasn’t making the team’s 25-man roster to open the season.

Hernandez pitched for the Phillies last year. He compiled a 3.84 ERA with an 80/32 K/BB ratio in 72 2/3 innings.
