Dave Sessions | MLB.com: Jo Adell’s first season in the majors was one to forget. The highly-touted outfielder slashed .161/.212/.266 in his first 132 plate appearances. Tuesday night, he made his 2021 debut and made a much better impression going 3-for-5 with two doubles, a walk, and a stolen base.
Marc Normandin | Baseball Prospectus $: The Kumar Rocker situation has highlighted the inequity of the MLB draft. Originally instituted as a way to enforce parity and reign in richer teams, the draft’s primary function now is to control labor and limit player earnings.
Mookie Betts made an incredible diving catch at *checks notes* second base.
Abraham Toro deflected a ball for a force out at second.
Jonathan India helped his Rookie of the Year case with a two-run homer.
