Trevor Bauer got his drone back with baseballs and fishing line

On Monday Bill told you about the tragic loss suffered by Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer: he got his drone stuck up in a tree.

You’ll be happy and relieved to learn that Bauer has retrieved his drone. Paul Hoynes shares the details of the daring rescue, which involved fishing line, baseballs and the help of some clubhouse attendants in Kansas City:

“First we were casting up in the trees, but the hook kept getting stuck and we had to cut the line,” said Bauer. “Then we screwed the fishing line into a baseball and were throwing the ball up there at the branch.”

Read the story to learn the stunning conclusion of this saga.

I will report, however, that no one was injured during the rescue. The drone, however, is day-to-day with some dents, but should be alright. It’d be ready to go if this were the playoffs.

Phillies’ Alec Bohm has MRI, sits out again with tight hamstring

NEW YORK — Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm is out of the starting lineup for the second time in three games because of left hamstring tightness.

Bohm had an MRI and the Phillies were awaiting the results. Philadelphia manager Rob Thomson said it was too soon to tell if Bohm might land on the injured list.

Bohm sat out the loss in Atlanta because of the same issue then Philadelphia was off.

Edmundo Sosa was set to start at third against the New York Mets, batting ninth.

Thomson said Bohm felt discomfort after fielding a slow roller. He played the entire game and went 0 for 3 in a 2-0 loss to the Mets.

Bohm is batting .265 with six homers and a team-high 37 RBIs this season. He has a .724 OPS.
