Go check out Miguel Cabrera’s Twitter page since last night’s Prince Fielder trade. He’s posting and retweeting pics of him and Prince Fielder like crazy. Usually without comment. It’s giving off a decidedly sad vibe, to be honest:
I can almost hear those opening piano notes of “I will remember you” when I look at these. Sad jams.
The Phillies have placed outfielder Jay Bruce on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain. He sustained the injury during a plate appearance in the third inning of last night’s game against the Dodgers. The team expects Bruce to miss at least three weeks.
With Bruce gone so too goes his power — he has 24 homers on the year — and they will try to replace some of it with Nick Williams. Williams has struggled at the big league level but is hitting .345/.403/.628 with six home runs in 28 games at Triple-A this year.
