Today’s edition of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast looks at the Biogenesis scandal that is rocking baseball.
And by “rocking baseball” I mean a “lame non story filled with stuff we already know.

Prince Fielder drove in 4 runs in three different rallies as the Tigers wiped away an early deficit, took the lead and eventually blew out the Rays, 10-1. Fielder went 3-4 with a homer.
David Phelps pitched 6 innings of 1 hit shutout ball, striking out 7 as the Yankees topped the Indians, 4-3.
Josh Collmenter pitched 4 innings of shutout relief, all after the 10th inning on the road. Each pitch he threw to the St. Louis Cardinals could have lost the game. He had base runners in every inning and yet wiggled out of trouble and the Diamondbacks won in 14, 7-6.
And thanks to his two homer, three hit and 5 RBI day, Yasiel Puig has owned baseball every game he has played as the Dodgers came from behind to beat the Padres, 9-7.
They all owned baseball on June 4th, 2013.

On Opening Day 2013, when Reds left fielder Ryan Ludwick went down with a shoulder injury, it was a rather sinking feeling. After having overall good luck with health last season, it was clear that the Reds weren’t going to have quite that luck this season.
Then the bigger questions arose, will Chris Heisey finally prove he can play everyday, and how long will Ludwick be out?
Unfortunately, the bad luck didn’t stop there. Chris Heisey, after 17 starts (in 23 appearances) in Left Field, ended up on the DL at the end of April with a right hamstring injury.
Although his batting average was a measly .173, his defense was solid, 37 Put Outs in 38 Chances, and 0 errors. He looked to be close to returning a couple of weeks ago, before re-aggravating the injury on a rehab assignment at AA Pensacola.

There is no one that wishes that I could stop typing the words “Disabled List” and “Injury Replacements” more than me. It seems like each of my articles since I took over the Yankee Correspondent position for MLB Reports has focused on how the team would survive the first portion of the 2013 season after off-season and Spring Training injuries left the team without its most expensive and experienced pieces.
Thanks to elite pitching from almost the entire team as well as some timely hitting from some unlikely sources, the Yankees have not just managed to compete through injuries but succeed.
As May turns to June, the thought was that the regular Yankee bats would return, which is basically the same thing we were told as April turned to May.
Now more than ever it seems necessary as the team has been regressing back to a fairly disturbing mean. The team has lost five in a row and dropped to two (2) games back of the Red Sox.
It is imperative that the team get healthy quickly. The first of the Yankee regulars to return was Curtis Granderson, who got all of 31 Plate Appearances before lightning struck twice.
The injury bug continues to bite the Yankees moving forward. The offense will be without a bat that generated 84 Home Runs over the 2011 and 2012 seasons for a little while longer.
