  1. Last year's Red Sox famously had the fewest home runs in baseball, and the addition of J.D. Martinez was expected to help. He has, but Boston's best-in-baseball lineup has benefited from a lot more than just that. They've improved from within.
  2. There have been some outstanding performances across the country by prospects, from the big leagues all the way down to this year's Draft class. This week's Inbox tries to reflect that.
  3. After the Reds dismissed manager Bryan Price and installed Jim Riggleman as his interim replacement on Thursday, they appeared in no rush to immediately hire a new full-time skipper.
  4. A MRI exam performed on Thursday revealed Freddie Freeman did not incur any structural damage when his left wrist was hit by a Hoby Milner pitch during the eighth inning of Wednesday night's win over the Phillies.
  5. Leonys Martin fell a double shy of the cycle -- including notching his first career grand slam -- and Jeimer Candelario added a two-run homer in his first career four-hit game, powering the Tigers to a three-game series sweep of the Orioles with a 13-8 win Thursday at Comerica Park.
  6. Changing the manager -- as the Reds did Thursday -- doesn't mean instant improvement for a 3-15 club. Progress is up to the players -- both those already on the roster and perhaps others who could be arriving in the future. It's also up to the front office to put the next manager in position to develop a winning culture.
  7. Ichiro's career an incredible winding road
  8. Here was Sparky Lyle arriving to save the moment, to save the day, a gunslinger coming to clean up the town, a pro wrestler coming to clear out the ring, a cavalryman coming to take the hill, a rock and roll band taking the stage. This needed music.
  9. In April, everything is magnified, and this is particularly true for the key newcomers for each team. Here is a look at how it is going for five newbies in the American League East.
  10. Astros manager AJ Hinch said reliever Ken Giles hasn't pitched since Saturday because of a problem with his back. "He's been battling a little bit of back tightness and had been unavailable the last couple of days,'' Hinch said before Thursday's series finale against the Mariners.
  11. Tyler O'Neill's scorching-hot start to 2018 has him making his way to the big leagues. The Cardinals promoted O'Neill, the Cards' No. 4 prospect per MLB Pipeline, prior to Thursday's makeup game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
  12. Manager Joe Maddon was hoping Javier Baez could provide a spark at the top of the lineup, and the Cubs' second baseman did just that in the first inning on Thursday against the Cardinals.
  13. In a stirring pregame ceremony Tuesday to honor heroes of the Hurricane Maria recovery efforts, Puerto Rico's baseball icons -- Roberto Alomar, Bernie Williams, Carlos Delgado, Carlos Baerga and Juan Gonzalez among them -- walked alongside fellow Puerto Ricans amid appreciative applause. When those luminaries are in the company of one another, the conversation returns to one of the proudest periods in the lineage of Puerto Rican baseball: the 1995 Caribbean Series, and the Dream Team assembled for it.
  14. Look back at Jose Bautista's third-base chops
  15. When you look around baseball, and particularly the sorts of managers the new breed of management is hiring, it becomes more apparent that a manager like Bryan Price -- a fiery "leader" who made his bones as a specialist in one specific aspect of the game -- is not the direction baseball is going.
