After a sporting goods store leaked the Astros new logo over the weekend, Major League Baseball apologized to the team for allowing its merchandise out prematurely. But it happened again. This time it was Major League Baseball which did it on their website with the players’ roster cards:
I imagine another apology is forthcoming, but at this point the cat is out of the bag and the Astros’ official unveiling of the new gear this Friday evening is going to be somewhat anticlimactic.
UPDATE: MLB just tweeted this. It’s rather nonsensical:
How do storm preparations cause this to happen?
KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.
The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.
A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”
Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
