Andrew Mearns | Pinstripe Alley: The Yankees signed Ender Inciarte to a minor league deal Thursday. Inciarte struggled mightily at the plate over the past two seasons. The stellar defender mustered only a 47 wRC+ between 2020 and 2021, forcing Atlanta to release him ahead of the trade deadline.

Matt Collins | Over the Monster: Jackie Bradley Jr. is back in Boston after a disastrous stint in Milwaukee. As a Brewer, JBJ hit for just a 35 wRC+ in 428 plate appearances. Bradley is an excellent defender, but that kind of offensive production is sub-Mathisian. What went wrong? And is there any hope that things can go right?
