Leave a comment

Astros starter Gerrit Cole was scratched from his scheduled start the other day with hamstring discomfort. He has since characterized it as a “mild” issue. Today A.J. Hinch confirmed that, and said Cole should be good to go next week. In essence, he’ll have been skipped once through the rotation.

Cole, 28, is having a fantastic season thus far, with a 14-5 record, a 2.87 ERA and a 226/39 K/BB ratio in 156.2 innings. That strikeout total leads the league.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
