    Having a player hit 81 HRs on maybe 140-150 max effort swings in an exhibition is probably not the best way to keep a budding young superstar healthy.

    You would think a team that has a chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2001 would be a little more careful with their best player.

    I dont blame Seattle as much as I blame MLB. I'm not calling for doing away w the HR Derby but it should be structured so the participants arent taking nearly as many swings. It didnt used to be like it is now. It used to be a lesser amount of time in which there were much fewer swings. The reason it was changed must be so the competition lasts longer so the event can generate more money. You would think that MLB would be more cautious w the health of their young stars, who could be major marketing influences and ambassadors for the sport but apparently short term greed wins out.

    Here we go again: Julio Rodriguez pulled from tonight's game after getting hit on the right wrist while swinging at a pitch. His previous injury was to the left wrist. Stay tuned.

    Although no fractures, his wrist is swollen and he can't swing a bat for 5 days, so he's headed to the IL.

    Yeah, i figured that was why they were calling up Kelenic. Rodriguez is probably not out of the woods yet. Hopefully, they don't find anything else after the swelling subsides.
