3 Break-Outs in Progress

Every baseball season, we see a few new names at the top of the early leader-boards and some familiar faces. No matter the player or prospect pedigree, most hot starts fall off, while the elite can maintain and finish on a high note. But how can we tell if a hot April is sustainable or just a hot streak?

Deep Dive: Eduardo Rodriguez

Eduardo Rodriguez entered the league back in 2015, and it feels as if we have been waiting for him to breakout forever. However, it is important to remember that he is still only 26 years old.

Torn Labrum – What’s That?

Miguel Andujar has a torn labrum and is back on the IL.  I am sure if you are a fan and not a medical professional, you are asking – What is a Labrum?; Does it have to be fixed?; How is it fixed; How long does it take to recover from the injury?; Will XXX (insert current afflicted player name here) be the same player they were before the injury after the repair?
