Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the National League’s mid-season team MVPs.
Injuries mean opportunities. Diamondbacks’ Archie Bradley could land a spot in the starting rotation.
Dan Kaczrowski’s a realist, who has the work ethic of an optimist. The St. Anthony High graduate earned All-American honors at Hamline, but knew that being drafted in the 26th round by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2009 draft meant he wasn’t quite on the club’s We’ll-Be-Seeing-You-In-Phoenix-Soon list.
Adam Eaton could evolve into one of the best top-of-the-order hitters in the league.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have reached agreement on a two-year, $15 million contract with free agent outfielder Jason Kubel.
Kelly Johnson’s miserable season at the plate evaporated, at least for now, with one big swing Saturday night.
The Minnesota Twins fell just short in a rally that would have been so appropriate to honor Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew.
