The Mets’ Single-A affiliate, which calls St. Lucie, Florida home, is trying to put those LeBron James Miami Heat jerseys — no longer wanted by a majority of fans given the superstar’s decision to return to Cleveland — to good use.
The St. Lucie Mets are willing to swap tickets to all remaining home games this season (25) for fans’ James jerseys. The Mets are also throwing in a cup and a t-shirt to sweeten the deal.
What are they going to do with all of those jerseys? They’ll donate them to Goodwill. Seems like a win-win all-around.
Update (8:33 PM ET): Woodruff is headed to the 10-day injured list with a left oblique injury, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff exited Sunday afternoon’s start against the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to abdominal discomfort, the team announced. He threw a pitch to leadoff batter Tim Locastro and left the field with a trainer. Junior Guerra relieved him.
In three-plus innings, Woodruff was on the hook for four runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. He now carries a 3.75 ERA with a 136/29 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings of work.
Woodruff will undergo testing, which should allow the team to provide an update on his status, likely on Monday.
