It’s really sunny in St. Louis today. Like, blindingly so. But don’t worry, folks, because Bryce Harper’s got his:
That’s gotta be the second most offensive eyeblack of the season. And even Yunel Escobar is probably watching this on TV and saying “damn.”
We laugh, but when he’s the only one who isn’t blinded by virtue of MLB’s decision to start a game in St. Louis at 3:30 local time, we’ll nod our heads with respect at the kid’s wisdom.
Prior to Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Giants, the Astros announced that outfielder Josh Reddick has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a leg infection. Outfielder Jake Marisnick has been recalled from Triple-A Fresno.
Reddick, 31, has only started two games in the last week due to the leg issue, so it makes sense that the Astros would simply put him on the DL to free up the roster spot. He’s hitting .227/.331/.409 with six home runs and 18 RBI in 154 plate appearances this season.
Marisnick, 27, put up a 1.014 OPS in 23 plate appearances with Fresno. His major league numbers this season are much less impressive, batting .141/.151/.282 in 87 trips to the plate.
