Johnny Cueto was perfect through 6 innings and faced the minimum over 7 one hit shutout frames. He did not get the decision but led the Giants to yet another 1-0 victory over the Dodgers.
David Price faced his former team and threw 7 shutout innings, scattering 5 hits and sealing Boston’s first win, 1-0.
Gregory Polanco singled, doubled, walked and hit a 13th inning 2 out 3 run homer as the Pirates took the wild 13-10 game in Detroit.
Mike Trout scored both Angels runs, including a homer, and cut off a ball that would have tied the game in the 9th and preserved the 2-1 final in Oakland.

The Tigers are on the cusp of chasing that $189 MIL Luxury Tax Threshold they way they are spending money freely. They have 3 of the top 15 contracts in MLB history – with Jordan Zimmermann just outside the bar with his new 5 YRs/$110 MIL deal.

Miguel Cabrera and Justin Verlander both earn $28 MIL in the upcoming season – while Victor Martinez and Jordan Zimmermann both will make $18 MIL each. Ian Kinsler and Anibal Sanchez round out the 8 figure players.
Cabrera is just starting his huge 8 Years/$248 MIL pact – while Justin Verlander still has 4 years and a total of $112 MIL left on the books.
If all of the options are picked up on this team, the whole Roster could be back for the 2017 as well. This may be a good or bad thing. Read the rest of this entry
