Good morning!

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Dodgers news ...

The Dodgers lost to the Braves on Saturday to tie the series up at one game a piece. You can read the TBLA game recap here.

Julio Urías was suspended for 20 games for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy. He will only serve 15 games since he already served five games on administrative leave earlier this season.

Dave Roberts confirmed Dustin May will not start on Sunday, but rather come out of the bullpen. ESPN has more on the story.

Around the league ...

The Brewers-Nationals game last night was EPIC. The Brewers lasted the Nats 15-14 in a 14-inning battle. Every time the Brewers scored to take the lead, the Nats game right back to force the game late into the night.

The Twins had concerns about the season starting with unreasonably cold weather (as we mentioned a few days ago), so their schedule very nicely has them visit the West Coast for their first week of play.

Good news — minor league baseball players can now seek wage increases. This comes five years after some players sued teams for earning less than $7,500 a year in 2014.
