First it was Aaron Sanchez and now it’s Marcus Stroman who is dealing with a blister on his right hand that just won’t go away. Stroman initially developed the blister during a start against the Yankees before the All-Star break. It resurfaced during Toronto’s 2-1 loss to Cleveland in 10 innings on Saturday night at […]
If Ervin Santana really does smell baseballs – like his signature #SMELLBASEBALL hashtag infers – it seems his senses pick up as the game progresses. Santana leads Major League Baseball with four complete games – which is an incredible feat considering no MLB team has combined for more than three complete
