The Captain's Locker

August 2nd is a memorable day for me. For one, because it’s my Mother’s birthday. But the other was because of what happened in 1979. It was the day that Yankee catcher and captain Thurman Munson died in a plane crash. Yankee Stadium plays a great tribute video but I can’t find it on Youtube. None of the tributes I found there really did it justice.

INJURY NEWS

Rockies OF CarGo hopes to return from his wrist injury on Saturday.

In good news/bad news for the Rockies, star SS Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday night’s game in the 8th inning after injuring the pinky finger on his throwing hand.  He was 0-2 with a walk at that point in the game.

Marlins SS HanRam left Tuesday night’s game with a sprained shoulder.

Dodgers rookie SP Rubby De La Rosa will need Tommy John surgery.  Expect him to miss most if not all of the 2012 season as well.

White Sox 1B Paul Konerko remained out after taking a pitch to the knee over the weekend.

Orioles SP Jake Arrieta is having his next scheduled start on Saturday vs Toronto skipped.  He is dealing with bone spurs on his elbow and his season could be in jeopardy.

Mets SP Johan Santana was scratched from his scheduled rehab start on Thursday due to lingering soreness in his left shoulder.

Now if I told you one of these guys was baseball's all time home run leader until 2001 which one would you guess? The little one?

The Braves activated Jason Heyward from the DL today.  His entire team didn’t do anything in a 4-0 loss to the Mets.  The Braves had 2 hits, but Heyward didn’t get one of them.  He did walk though in his return.  This will be the last time I try to get a head start and lead with a story before the damn game starts.  Dillon Gee got screwed out of his 8th straight win by an hour & 11 minute rain delay.  Bobby Purnell picked up the W in relief.

INJURY NEWS

The Twins are reporting catcher Joe Mauer will be activated on Friday.

Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano was activated from the DL.

Blue Jays SP Kyle Drabek was optioned to AAA.

The Astros placed RP Brandon Lyon on the DL with biceps tendonitis.

I threw everyone off today by going with the good news first.  Oh and another special surprise…I was able to track down The Derek Jeter DIVE video…unfortunately it’s a link…progress??
