Bad day for Yasiel Puig. First he loses the Final Vote to Freddie Freeman then he has Pedro Gomez dump all over him and, finally, he gets hurt:
Don Mattingly said after the game that he’s not too concerned about Puig and thinks he could be back in the lineup today. But if he isn’t, let’s look at the bright side: if he doesn’t have to play he’ll have more time to pick up girls sitting in the stands.
Back in May journeyman Edwin Jackson debuted with the Toronto Blue Jays. When he did so, he made history by suiting up for a record 14th different team in his 17-year big league career.
Sadly the 14th time wasn’t the charm, as Jackson has been knocked around pretty good with Toronto, posting an 11.12 ERA in 28 and a third innings over eight appearances, five of which came as starts. He was just insanely hittable over that span, allowing a staggering 15.6 hits per nine innings. As such, it’s not too surprising that the Jays designated Jackson for assignment today. They did so to make room for Jacob Waguespack, who will start tonight’s game against the Red Sox.
Jackson, 35, will not try to latch on with team number 15. Or, I suppose, he he has almost even odds to re-join an old team.
