As yesterday’s game vs. the Yankees was rained and blown away, the Guardians will play New York at 12:10pm and 6:10pm EST today, with Carlos Carrasco starting the noon affair and Triston McKenzie toeing the rubber for the nightcap.

Zack Meisel offered some fun and interesting notes on the Guardians for the Athletic.’s Terry Pluto is on Team Charlie Condon.’s Paul Hoynes wrote about Tyler Freeman’s easy transition to centerfield and answered some reader questions, including about the potential to bring Shane Bieber back. Also, new third base coach Rouglas Odor is impressed with platinum glove winner Andres Gimenez, surprisingly.

You really need to read everything Matan K posts on medium.

His latest, above, looks at quality of competition and ensuing outputs for the top prospects for the MLB draft this summer, with Charlie Condon and Travis Bazzana leading the pack, to no one’s surprise. The Athletic’s Keith Law has Condon as the best of the class.

Around MLB:

The Twins lost Carlos Correa to an oblique strain, an injury which can be quite tricky. They also lost to the upstart Tigers.

There were some fun sparks flying in competition or in personal conflicts yesterday between the Orioles and Brewers, Rangers and Astros, and Padres and Dodgers, with the Brewers, Rangers and Padres notching wins.

The news of Mike Trout’s demise has been greatly exaggerated.
