Most teams get natty when they travel. The Dodgers are no exception. The difference here is that John SooHoo, the official photographer for the Los Angeles Dodgers took pictures of their trip from L.A. to St. Louis the other day and posted them on his blog.
The pics are here and they’re pretty great. Some family moments. Some pretty awesome sartorial moments from Hyun-Jin Ryu and Juan Uribe. Clayton Kersahw doing his bullpen session yesterday. Fun stuff.
The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers and pitcher Jordan Lyles have agreed to a contract. ESPN’s Jeff Passan provided the details, reporting that it is a two-year, $16 million deal.
Lyles, 29, split last season between the Pirates and Brewers, performing much better with the latter. Overall, he compiled a 4.15 ERA with a 146 strikeouts and 55 walks across 141 innings. It was a return to full-time starting for Lyles, who had performed mostly as a reliever from 2016-18.
The Rangers also inked Kyle Gibson to a three-year, $30 million contract last week. Gibson and Lyles will join a rotation that also includes Mike Minor and Lance Lynn as well as youngster Kolby Allard.
