FanGraphs | Jeff Sullivan: Everyone likes different kinds of defensive highlights, but my personal favorites are at third base. You should read Sullivan’s praise piece for Matt Chapman, if nothing else for the highlight gifs.

The Athletic | David O’Brien ($): Ronald Acuña is setting the world on fire since moving to the leadoff spot.

The Ringer | Zach Kram: Jacob deGrom is perfect against opposing pitchers this year, which puts him on a historic pace.
