I can’t imagine anyone caring a whole lot about this and 24 hours before the trade deadline seems like particularly odd timing, but via Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune here’s the 2014 All-Star game logo that the Twins unveiled today:
Justin Morneau joined Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins for the unveiling ceremony at Target Field, which is interesting because it’s presumed the Twins are going to trade Morneau by tomorrow afternoon.
Braves third baseman Johan Camargo will begin the regular season on the disabled list with a strained side and back, David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Camargo suffered the injury last week in a Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays and hasn’t played since.
With Camargo out, Rio Ruiz will likely play third base in his place, as well Charlie Culberson and Danny Santana. O’Brien notes that had Camargo not been injured, the Braves likely would’ve left Ruiz off the roster in favor of an extra outfielder or third catcher.
Camargo had a solid rookie season for the Braves in 2017, batting .299/.331/.452 across 82 games. Ruiz did not fare as well, batting .193/.283/.307 in 53 games.
