"He was ready, waiting for that fastball," Sanchez said. "They're going to be ready for that heat."Colorado Rockies MLB Design Face Coverings
Horton laughed at the memory. He told Suzuki — who in college had gone from an unheralded walk-on to an All-American on a national championship winning team — that pro ball is different, and maybe he could find more subtle means of expression. But he also cautioned him not to change.Minnesota Twins MLB Design Face Coverings

Boston College righty Mason Pelio matched up with Fitts and had a solid showing. He sat 93-95 mph much of his outing, with a solid average changeup and curveball, which he had trouble landing for strikes. He doesn't look that athletic on the mound and has always had some reliever risk, so he fits in the third round right now. Louisville righty Jack Perkins was up to 98 mph in recent weeks but was 92-95 mph in a look last weekend. His signature pitch is a plus 3000 rpm breaking ball, and he also has a usable changeup and Craig Kimbrel-type vibe on the mound. His delivery and command leave a bit to be desired, he missed last season with Tommy John surgery, and his fastball tilt/shape had the same bat-missing issue that Cerantola's does; I'd say the third round for Perkins as well.Detroit Tigers MLB Design Face Coverings
"Just because I haven't been able to play doesn't mean I haven't been out on the field," he said. "I've been out to live BPs. I've been out to watch bullpens. I'm always watching guys throw, whether it's at home or on the road. I'm always going through games. I'm always trying to figure out what it is that they're trying to do and how we can get guys better.
He took one more swing. Sure, he grounded out to second, but he took a swing all the same. Who wouldn’t want one more cut at a dream?
Baez is coming off a relatively down year at the plate last season. In 59 games, Baez only managed to slash .203/.238/.360 while recording eight home runs and 24 RBI. But, he did make up for it in the field. Baez recorded a .968 fielding percentage (eight errors in 253 defensive chances) and 34 double plays. As a result Baez was rewarded with the first Gold Glove of his career.Boston Red Sox MLB Design Face Coverings
Reyes will be the Indians' full-time designated hitter this season. He hit nine homers with 34 RBIs last season. In 2019, he hit 37 homers combined for Cleveland and San Diego.
