Sorry for the abbreviated recap this morning, folks, but some things came up this morning preventing a thorough going-over of the box scores, game stories and whatnot. It’ll be a normal day besides that. Just an early morning jam-up.

So, discuss yesterday’s amongst yourself. I’ll give you a topic: Could Yasiel Puig create a rock so big that He Himself could not lift it?

Matt Shoemaker out for the season with a torn ACL

Terrible news for Blue Jays pitcher Matt Shoemaker: the MRI he had on his knee revealed a torn ACL. He’ll need surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.

Shoemaker was in the process of holding the A’s scoreless through three innings of three-hit, one-strikeout ball in his start on Saturday. He twisted his leg awkwardly when he ran over and tagged Matt Chapman between first and second base, however, and it was immediately clear that things weren’t right. He was initially diagnosed with a sprain, but the MRI showed that it was worse.

This is a tough break for Shoemaker, who had started off the season pretty fantastically, posting a 1.57 ERA over his first five starts this year.
