screenshot cropped from indians.com

i’m afraid i have some disheartening news for Michael Brantley fans. this afternoon, on May 14, the Indians announced that Michael was placed on the 15-Day DL with right shoulder inflammation. the move is retroactive to May 10, meaning he can potentially be activated on May 25. this marks Michael’s second time on the disabled list this season, as he opened the year on the 15-Day DL while still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, and it’s his third DL stint overall in his MLB career.

Tomorrow is a New Day

Max-ScherzerBy: Mike Carter

The other night, as I was putting my kids to bed my phone buzzed, which is unusual at that time of night, unless it’s my family texting the usual back and forth. After about 8 PM, I lose the ability to speak and to think coherently. So I basically shut myself off except for the “brush your teeth” and “feed your fish” commands to my children.

This buzz was different. It was my MLB app telling me that the Washington Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer was going for the single-game strikeout record in the ninth inning against the Tigers. He had a legitimate shot at breaking it. Scherzer had ground 19 batters into the ground with his effortless motion and potent mix of pitches.
