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.
