Really late daily. Syndergaard, Gilmartin, Keyvius Sampson, Alex Meyer, Edwar Cabrera, Barnes, Teheran, Odorizzi, Miller v Grimm....probably many others, but starting late.
And for filler, an MiLB.com story about an obscure pitcher that's not very good.
During the Triple-A All-Star break, ballplayers are free to savor their time off. They enjoy the comfort of friends and family, maybe catch up on movies or TV shows. They take the break in its most literal sense.
Dan Straily played catch with a sophomore from his old stomping grounds, Thurston High School in Springfield, Ore.
Don't worry, kid. The way Straily's been pitching, professional batters have been scared of him, too.
The A's prospect struck out 13 and allowed one hit -- a solo homer -- over seven innings Friday night, but Triple-A Sacramento dropped a 1-0 decision to visiting Las Vegas.
After fanning five of his six batters, Straily (3-2) knew he might have something special on his hands.
"When I got those first five, I was really feeling my fastball command," he said. "I was trying to ride it out as much as I could before the sun went down, because the lights here [at Raley Field] can get kind of weird sometimes. But I was feeling strong in those first two innings and seemed to settle into everything pretty well."
