I had a lot of fun running down the best and worst looks of all 30 teams. If anyone can think of any other silly offseason time-killers, by all means, let me know. In the meantime, at the request of many, what follows are links to all 30 of the uniform rundowns:
Phillies, Braves, Marlins, Mets, Nationals/Expos (and bonus updated Nationals);
Reds, Cardinals, Brewers, Astros, Cubs, Pirates;
Giants, Padres, Rockies, Dodgers, Diamondbacks
Rays, Yankees, Red Sox, Blue Jays, Orioles;
Twins, White Sox, Tigers, Indians, Royals;
Rangers, Athletics, Angels, Mariners
Only, like, 100 days to go until spring training.
LOS ANGELES — Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Donaldson and Tommy Kahnle appear set to rejoin the New York Yankees ahead of their series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
New York cleared three roster spots, saying that infielder-outfielders Oswaldo Cabrera and Franchy Cordero had been optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre along with left-hander Matt Krook after a 1-0 loss at Seattle.
Stanton, Donaldson and Kahnle all played in a rehab game for Double-A Somerset. Stanton was hitless in three at-bats in his first appearance since injuring his left hamstring on April 15.
Donaldson went 1 for 4 in his fourth rehab game as he comes back from a strained right hamstring originally sustained on April 5.
Kahnle pitched one inning, giving up one run and one hit and walking two. He has been out since spring training with right biceps tendinitis.
Boone said he wasn’t concerned about Stanton potentially returning after playing in just one rehab game. He did say that Stanton likely will be a designated hitter for a couple of weeks after rejoining the Yankees.
