Bruce Rondon is in The Best Shape of His Life

8 Comments

It’s a young life, but still. From John Low of the Detroit Free Press:

But it must be reported that right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon has arrived in Tigers spring training clearly having lost a significant amount of weight since the end of last season. How much? There’s no official word, at least yet, but he has dropped a lot more than 10 pounds. Maybe 20 or 30.

Legitimately curious to see if he can still hit 100 on the Juggs gun now that he’s lost some of that mass.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
