Nyjer Morgan’s alter ego — Tony Plush — got him in some trouble on Twitter the other night. So now he’s going with a new moniker:
Also, for those interested in the blowback from the Nyjer Morgan-Cardinals dust-up from last night, there isn’t a whole lot to report. He referred to himself in the clubhouse earlier as “Tony Hush”, and didn’t have much to say as a result … The past is the past,” he said. “Let it go … That’s why I’m Tony Hush … I ain’t talking. I don’t have nothing to say.”
What’s the over/under on Tony Hush continuing to control Morgan’s id? A week? I’ll set it at a week.
Braves minor league first baseman Braxton Davidson played the hero during the Arizona Fall League Championship Game on Saturday, but followed up his game-winning homer with what appeared to be a broken left foot.
Braxton had just lofted a 2-1 pitch from Nationals left-hander Taylor Guilbeau in the bottom of the 10th inning and was making his way around the bases when he started hopping on his right foot as he neared the plate. After being helped off the field, that the infielder was quickly taken to a local hospital for further examination, the results of which have yet to be made public.
The 22-year-old helped lift the Peoria Javelinas to their fifth AFL title and second since 2017. He went 2-for-5 with a single and home run in Saturday’s finale over the Salt River Rafters. During the regular season, he completed his third consecutive campaign in High-A and slashed .171/.281/.365 with a career-high 20 home runs and a .646 OPS through 481 plate appearances.
