Blaze it.

Royals Review | Max Rieper: Ah, the Tim Anderson incident that only gets worse. Brad Keller gets five games but does not miss a start, and Anderson gets a one-game suspension for... the n-word. There’s going to be a looooot of analysis around this, and none of it particularly good.

FanGraphs | Ben Clemens: The Tigers may have found a diamond in the rough in Niko Goodrum, and if he capitalizes on possibly newfound power by taking the ball more to the pull side, we’ll see in a year’s time whether he looks more like a fluke or a staple in a future Detroit lineup.

ESPN Insider | Eric Karabell ($): It’s early, but there are fantasy steals to be found. Hunter Dozier is off to a blazing start with the Royals, for one. There’s also Jeff McNeil, and he offers utility player eligibility that owners always look for. And then there’s Alex Colome, who despite being on the White Sox will still rack up plenty of valuable saves.
