The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for Combined Dodger No Hitter)

COMBINEDNONO

Orlando Ramirez / USA TODAY Sports – SNLA

Now THAT was a show for the folks of Monterrey Mexico!

In a game that was drenched in rain, the fans who braved the weather were treated to a combined no hitter. Walker Buehler took the first six. Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore each threw a no hit inning and an unlikely group of arms etched their names into Dodgers history.

They knocked a more likely name off of this list… Clayton Kershaw.

Of course they did this against the Padres, still looking for their first No Hitter in Team History.

Now to update the list.

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for Sean Manaea)

That’s one way to slow down the Red Sox!

Sean Manaea faced a red hot Red Sox team who was throwing their ace and said “I have a novel idea. Why don’t I throw a no hitter?”

A bloop over the infield could have been called a hit instead of an error and it looked like Benitendi reached until a replay showed the glove brushing his shirt.

Now a bright young star no hit the hottest team in baseball and who else was in the stadium? Dallas Braden, who had thrown the previous no hitter in A’s history.

Hat tipped from THIS Red Sox fan.

Now to update the list.

5 MLB Starting Pitchers Who Need to Build off a Strong Second Half

With Grapefruit and Cactus League games officially underway, everyone in baseball gets that coveted clean slate. The 2017 season presents endless opportunities for players and teams, no matter how good or how bad 2016 was to them.

Some are taking the field with the hopes of completely changing the narrative surrounding them, while others simply want to continue showing the progress they displayed just a few months ago is indeed the new normal.

The MLB regular season is a grind — as if 162 games in about 180 days doesn’t say that enough — and quick starts don’t always mean certain performances are sustainable over the long haul. The same also goes for poor starts, too.

The five starting pitchers below each saw their respective 2016 campaigns start on the wrong foot, but that didn’t stop them from having a strong finish in the second half.

Now, they’ll each try to use that momentum to produce from start-to-finish this season.

Sean Manaea

Jen Rainwater (Featured BBBA Writer/Owner – bbstmlb.com) 

The Oakland Athletics had a choice to make. They had options for who would be their fifth starter this week and it’s not the more obvious of choices. It’s 24-year-old Sean Manaea, the A’s number two overall prospect and top pitching prospect.

According to multiple sources, including Sports Illustrated, MLB.com and the San Francisco Chronicle, the A’s will call up Manaea to start Friday against the Houston Astros.

Manaea has barely spent time in the minors but vice president of baseball operations for the A’s Billy Beane has said that he wouldn’t bring him up unless he thought he was ready.

The A’s are likely just testing the waters, seeing if Manaea transition his unbelievable number of strike outs effectively in the majors.

1st off the Twins have the top 3 players listed for the category in Buxton, Ho-Park and Berrios.

All Minnesota youngsters could make the squad, although Buxton is posting just a .567 OPS  in Spring Training –  after only putting up a .576 OPS in his 129 AB for 2015. He will be given the starting job to either make it or not, after the trade of Aaron Hicks.  Don’t like the favorite status for most of these categories, this will ring true one more time.

Ho-Park has looked solid at the dish so far with a 3 Slash of .283/.306/.543 – with 3 HRs and 13 RBI in his 46 AB, and at 29 years of age – coming over from the KBO, he has years of experience next to his classmates.

Jose Abreu and Ichiro Suzuki both came over as later in life rookies to the Junior Circuit and took the honors  Ho-Park was a beast in Korea – blasting over 50+ HRs in each of the last 2 years there for his club team Nexen.

While you have to temper expectations coming overseas to North America from there, what I love is that the guy improved his numbers in each of the last 5 years.  This bodes well for him in Minny.

With a 4 year deal in his back pocket, Park will and should remain on the big roster based on his early success.

I am not sure he will win the Award, and I am not placing any cabbage on him too, but at least he won’t be subjected to service time restrictions like other rookies. Read the rest of this entry
