Did the players report on July 1st?

Recommended Posts

Some reported. A couple of players were posting updated photos on Instagram of them at the ballpark. Elias said they were going to spread out the influx and reporters don’t exactly have access.

Yeah they can still only have a set number there to start before they all get tested and then can have more at workouts.

I have read that the first workout is on Friday but no real details as to the type of workout or what positions will be involved.

We won't get the level of detail that we are used to getting from spring training if they do not allow the beat reporters to be there on the site and interviewing people.

What a wonderful first day of camp. Pushing 100. Humidity around 50%.  Like playing baseball in a sauna.

Yeah this. It's just not going to be like normal ST where Roch is feeding us tidbits on the regular. Which is fine! But we should set expectations of what we'll hear out of camp.

Let's hope there is less wind than there usually is in Sarasota in March.

Players have started reporting, workout will begin tomorrow for international guys who just arrived yesterday. They had to complete their COVID testing. If results come back clean the international guys will be on field tomorrow. Most are in hotels covered by the team for the season vs trying to acquiring housing for a 60 game season.

MLB teams are not allowed to announce positive tests of players for legal (HIPAA) reasons.

They do announce when they put guys on the Covid disabled list, as the Phillies did yesterday with 4 guys including Tommy Hunter.  Technically that is not proof the guys tested positive because you can go on the C-19 list if you are positive, if you have symptoms and are awaiting testing/test results, or if you have been exposed to someone who has it.

You could also find out if a player has it if he announces it himself on social media or whatever.

But the team can't come out and say it.

They did report and CD is almost unrecognizable!

And Hunter Harvey - flows along with Elias!

    • I don’t think we saw enough of Valaika defensively at 2B (73 innings total) to draw any conclusions about whether he’s better than Alberto.    I tend to doubt he is, but I don’t really have a strong view about it.     I thought Valaika did a nice job with the bat, and in particular, showed more power than I would have expected.   I’m not sold that he’s a .791 hitter, but he showed enough to hold his 40-man spot this winter.    
    • my takeaway from 2020 is Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Kremer, and to lesser extent Mullins.   Santander and Iglesias did good things.  Means finished strong.  Hope.
    • Joe West and Angel Hernandez asked me to say hello for them.
    • Thanks for sharing that.  Don’t believe I’ve heard Martyn before.  Now, I’d like to hear the Foo Fighters cover it.
    • The great increases in homers and strikeouts have occurred in the last few years. I think it may be because the players are practicing putting backspin on the balls when they hit them. The backspin will make the balls travel farther, but it's also harder to put backspin on a baseball by hitting it. If you watch Sports Center when they are showing highlights of homeruns, they usually show in slow motion some of the batters' swings. If you see this from the camera angle that is near the dugout facing the batter, you can see that the batters are swinging using a downward angle. The downward angle will put backspin on the ball(if it is hit just right). It's also harder to hit the ball when your swing has that angle. So if the batters hit the pitches just right, the balls will have backspin and if those balls are in the air they will have more of a chance of going over the fence. But it is also harder to make contact with the pitch, which makes an increase in strikeouts inevitable.  Analytics have made the old idea of the level swing just something in the memories of us old-timers.
    • I like games when balls are put in play.  Mountcastle puts balls in play.  I like Ryan Mountcastle. 😉
    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
