Remember that mocked-up Miami Marlins logo that leaked onto an internet message board earlier this week? The one that everyone panned? Turns out it’s probably legit.
From Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel comes the below photo of a New Era cap bearing the same graphic and rainbow-esque color scheme.
The Marlins could always back away from the look if the reception remains sour. And maybe it will change once the full uniforms are revealed. But that’s one ugly baseball hat…
The Twins have informed reliever Glen Perkins they will not pick up his 2018 club option worth $6.5 million, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. Instead, he will be paid $700,000 per his buyout clause.
Perkins, 34, has pitched a total of 7 2/3 innings over the last two seasons due to shoulder and biceps injuries. Bollinger adds that the two could come to terms on a minor league deal, but if they can’t reach an agreement, the lefty is likely to retire.
From 2011-15, Perkins emerged as one of the better relievers in baseball, making three All-Star teams. He compiled an aggregate 2.84 ERA with 340 strikeouts and 73 walks across 313 1/3 innings.
