Tonight's Game Cancelled - Rain Out Notes on Wandy, Free Outs, Lowered Mound...

Camden Yards from Root Sports

Tonight's game in Baltimore has been rained out and will be played Thursday at 7:05. Charlie Morton's start will be pushed back a day, to tomorrow. Some rainy day notes:
  • Wandy Rodriguez is expected to make a rehab start with the Altoona Curve on Thursday.
  • Kevin Ruprecht of Beyond the Box Score rates what players made the most "free outs" - whiffs and pop ups - so far this year. Starling Marte is one; ex-Bucco Garrett Jones is another.
  • Baseballstooge at Fangraph's Community Research blog makes a case for lowering the mound again both to increase offense and decrease TJ surgeries.
  • Ex-Bucs: The Orioles announced that Steve Pearce was claimed on release waivers but he elected to become a free agent rather than accepting the claim.
