Around the league...

Albert Pujols drove in his 2,000th career RBI on Thursday, joining an elite club of three.

Jeff Passan writes about the increasing push towards an international draft.

“The best players in the Dominican Republic often drop out of school as young as 10 and 11 to start training for baseball careers. The increasingly early age at which players agree to sign -- which is against MLB’s rules that are rarely enforced -- has incentivized the use of performance-enhancing drugs on children in hopes that their mature-looking bodies will impress scouts enough to offer significant signing bonuses. While the agreements are non-binding, teams fear that breaking a deal would have harsh repercussions with the buscónes who control the talent pipeline that accounts for nearly 30 percent of major league players and closer to half of minor leaguers.” — Jeff Passan, ESPN
