Happy Sunday, everyone! Let’s take a look at what happened across the league yesterday.

  • Former Dodger Matt Kemp hit his first home run with the Rockies. Yes, for those of you that didn’t know, he’s a Rockie!
  • The Red Sox announced that pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez has been shut down for the 2020 baseball season. Rodriguez was diagnosed last week with myocarditis (inflammation in the heart), a condition that may be related to his contraction of COVID-19 earlier this summer. The southpaw did not experience chest pain or any symptoms, but both he and the Red Sox are taking an abundance of caution given the nature of the diagnosis.
  • Mike Trout introduced the world to his newborn son. You’re looking at the No. 1 pick in the 2038 MLB Draft.

There have been many great players from Cuba in baseball history. But before Saturday night, never before had the first four batters of a team’s starting lineup been all Cuban-born players, per the Elias Sports Bureau.
