At this point, I'd rather trade Whitley than Tucker. Idk what happened to Whitley, but it's scary.

I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Well I guess Sneed won't get a chance to start a game in LA

While one may look at it and say "that's not good," it is just his first action. Getting the feel for throwing to batters again. Plenty of time to work it out

Correa can't return until July 26th now.

Correa wasnt already on the 60 day IL?

It was thought that he would only be out 5-6 weeks originally.

That's bull**** if they don't give him a chance against LA over Framber

I gotta admit, I'm really confused about this one. I really thought they'd move Corbin Martin to the 60-day IL and take Joe Smith off of it. Putting Correa on the 60-day makes me wonder if he's had some kind of setback. I really hoped he'd be back sooner. Also, why send down Sneed? They can't be thinking about starting Framber again next time around, can they? They sent our key long relief option down and can't call him up for 10 days, and we'd certainly need him if he's sent back out there again. The only teams he's pitched well against are the BlueJays and Orioles, the 2 worst teams in the AL, if not all of baseball.

Is there any special rule about trading guys when they're on the 60 day IL? If so, I wonder if it's a sign they're considering using Martin as trade bait.

Hinch can bring Sneed back up earlier than 10 days if there is an injury.... the way this team has been going on the injury front (Bregman), Hinch probably realizes he will have an injury before that 10 day timeline

If Bregman goes on IL, I think they'd opt to bring up Mayfield for his versatility until Diaz can get back. Straw for a long time at SS is a scary proposition.

That's probably correct.

We need better medical staff if they can't snap an XRAy or two and see if he has breaks or not.

When I saw the notification about Correa to the 60 Day IL I lost my ***** Then read it and realized it was just a tactical switcharoo

Bregman's injury sounds pretty bad

He basically caught a strong uppercut to the chin. I just hope his jaw isn't broken.

Again, blame the dipsheets saying it can't get any worse when we were down a measly 4-0. It can always get worse.

Can anyone explain why Sneed was sent down instead of Valdez? Is it because Valdez can pitch relief out of the bullpen the next few days while Sneed is spent?

So...Carlos will end up being out longer than we originally thought.?

I'm shocked

I think that's basically it. Valdez will head down in a few days when Peacock returns. In the meantime, Sneed probly wouldn't have been able to pitch anyway.

He is about to start a rehab assignment next week, so you're looking at most an extra week? The 26 is only 2 weeks away.

The word was Correa was a bit behind Diaz. So assume Wednesday or Friday next week for Correa? Maybe week from Monday? The 60 day date seems pretty close, anyway.

Bregman's chin keeps the Big Whiff in the lineup another night. Maybe he'll hit one of those 20 homers he was projected to have!

Nothing against an opener and everything against Valdez at any point.
