Baseball Prospectus | Zach Crizer: Crizer investigates why Giancarlo Stanton has so many infield hits. Wait a minute...that can’t possibly make sense, can it?

FanGraphs | Jeff Sullivan: Speaking of things that don’t make sense, Trevor Cahill is apparently a pretty solid pitcher. Sullivan explains how this has come to pass.

The Ringer | Ben Lindbergh: Remember when Kole Calhoun was really, really awful earlier this year? Well, he’s back to being awesome again. Lindbergh details his return to form.

The Athletic | David O’Brien ($): Tommy John surgery has to really suck. Imagine going through it three and a half times. (How do you even have half a surgery? It seems like it should be an all or nothing thing, right?) O’Brien chronicles the return of Jonny Venters to the Braves- one of the best human interest stories of 2018.
