JML update, August 9, 2018 (Games of Aug. 8)

Posted on: August 9th, 2018 by Ron Kaplan

Kevin Pillar was 1-for-4 with a run scored as the Toronto Blue Jays (51-62) lost to the visiting Boston Red Sox, 10-5. He also made a nice catch and throw on this play, all the more impressive considering his recent collarbone injury.

Danny Valencia was 1-for-3 with a walk as the Baltimore Orioles (35-79) beat the host Tampa Bay Rays, 5-4. He came out of the game for a pinch-runner in the ninth.

Joc Pederson was 0-for-4 as the LA Dodgers (63-52) lost to the host Oakland A’s, 3-2.

Neither Ryan Braun nor Robert Stock appeared for the Milwaukee Brewers  (66-51) and San Diego Padres (45-71), respectively, as the former beat the latter, 8-4. Braun is doing better in August, going 7-for-18 with a slash line of .389/.476/.667 and two stolen bases in one game, the first time he’s done that since April 14, 2017, according to FOXSports.com.

No game for Alex Bregman and the Houston Astros.

Gabe Kapler‘s Philadelphia Phillies (64-50) were shut out by the host Arizona Diamondbacks, 6-0.

DL Review:

  • Ian Kinsler, Red Sox
  • Max Fried, Atlanta Braves
  • Richard Bleier, Orioles (out for season)
  • Ryan Sherriff, St. Louis Cardinals (out for season)
