Sarah Wexler | MLB.com: After getting pulled early from Monday night’s start with side discomfort, Jack Flaherty is headed to the 10-day IL with an oblique strain. There’s currently no timetable for his return. Flaherty has a 3.68 FIP through 11 starts.
Ben Clemens | FanGraphs: Francisco Lindor isn’t hitting well in the early stages of his Mets career. His hard hit rate is up, his average and max exit velocity is the same so he’s fine, right? Well, maybe, maybe not. Whatever’s eating Francisco Lindor is more complicated than that.
Eno Sarris | The Athletic $: With five no-hitters already on record, one has to wonder what role the deadened ball is playing in the proliferation of no-nos. It’s a complicated question with arguments to be made that the ball is to blame and that something else is going on.
Tyler O’Neill made a leaping grab for the final out of a 3-2 ballgame between the Dodgers and Cardinals.
