Contained within this obviously advertisement-driven tweet from MLB’s official Twitter account is some pretty sound dating advice:
Maybe you haven’t had a date in awhile is because your MLB hat smells awful. Tweet us a pic and you might get a new one. Use #SamsungMLB

Also, just in general “maybe you haven’t had a date in a while because your [fill in the blank] smells awful” works too.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
