Nick Swisher is mired in a 6-for-55 slump, and a reason for it may very well be the nagging shoulder injury he’s had all year. He aggravated it on Saturday, and now he may be heading to the DL. Swisher, talking to Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer:
“I’ve been battling this shoulder thing the whole year. It’s super frustrating for me because I’ve never had something like this. Either way, we have to figure out what is going on and then we will go from there … “I just don’t feel I have the thump in my swing. Whatever decision we make tomorrow, we are going to go at it full on.”
He’s going to totally ROCK that disabled list, bro. Gonna convalesce at 110%.
Janet Paskin and Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg are reporting that the Yankees and Red Sox are near an agreement to play a two-game series in London in 2019. The games would be played at London Stadium, which hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Major League Baseball has had games played internationally in Japan, Australia, and Mexico. It has yet to do so in Europe. The NFL will have three games played in London this year, with the Seahawks and Raiders matching up at Tottenham Stadium on October 14, the Eagles and Jaguars playing at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28, and the Titans and Chargers doing battle at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28. Those dates will likely be determined next month.
