I love position players pitching and I think you do too, so here’s Rangers backup catcher Chris Gimenez tossing a scoreless, 1-2-3 inning against the Angels last night.
Oh, and he even struck out a pretty good hitter in C.J. Cron!
According to Pitch-F/X he topped out at 87.6 miles per hour and threw 11 fastballs out of 12 pitches, working in one changeup.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
