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.
Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler will be placed on the 10-day injured list due to fatigue in his right shoulder, Newsday’s Tim Healey reports. The roster move is retroactive to July 12. Steven Matz will open up a two-game series in Minnesota, starting in Wheeler’s place on Tuesday.
As Healey notes, the soonest Wheeler can return is July 23, which would give him at most two starts ahead of the July 31 trade deadline. Wheeler has frequently been brought up in trade conversations as he can become a free agent after the season and the 42-51 Mets have been freefalling.
Wheeler, 29, owns a 4.69 ERA with 130 strikeouts and 34 walks across 119 innings of work this season.
