KC Royals: Who’s winning the Carlos Santana trade?

Carlos Santana might have once been, but no longer is, the quintessential No. 3 hitter. Late of the KC Royals but a Mariner since late June, Santana was slashing .197/.312/.384 entering Friday night’s game against Kansas City, hardly the kind of numbers big league managers typically want in the three-hole.

Cardinals minor leaguer has embarrassing home run trot on flyout

A St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguer had a pretty embarrassing moment Thursday night on what he thought was a long home run. Infielder Delvin Perez, playing for the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds, hit a long fly ball to left field during Thursday’s game against the Gwinnett Stripers. While it looked like a clear home run off the bat, a strong wind blowing in knocked the ball down and turned it into a fairly routine flyout.

Cardinals minor leaguer Delvin Perez rounds bases in flyout blunder

St. Louis Cardinals minor league Delvin Pérez hit a pretty routine fly out to left field Thursday night. What wasn’t routine, though, was Pérez’s reaction Pérez, playing for the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds, admired the ball as it flew toward the outfield, before flipping his bat and starting to run the bases — not realizing Gwinnett Stripers left fielder Justin-Henry Malloy was tracking it down. Not even when Malloy made the catch did Pérez realize his mistake. That rude awakening came as Malloy was rounding third base and his teammates in the Memphis dugout told him he was out. When he heard the...

One Minor Leaguer Not Getting Enough Love for the Nats is Jake Alu

After the big trades that the Washington Nationals have made over the past couple of years, it is easy to look at just the big names in the farm system that is now loaded with six players in the Top-150 of all of the Minor Leagues. However, we must look for the possible hidden gems in the Nats organization. This player was drafted in 2019, in round 24. This would make him the 723rd overall pick in that year’s draft. His name is Jake Alu, and Nats fans, he is not playing like a 723rd overall pick. Alu can possibly be that hidden gem.
