Three are in, everyone else is out. But lots of votes were cast up and down the ballot, and here they are. Everyone above 75% is in, everyone who did not get 75% but did receive above 5% will be on the ballot next year, with the exception of Jack Morris, who is no longer eligible for election by the BBWAA:
Congratulations, Kenny Rogers. Somebody out there loves you.
The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
