ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays have placed right-hander Charlie Morton on the 10-day injured list due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder.
It’s been a tough week for the Yankees. A road trip through Philadelphia and Tampa Bay didn’t go their way, but that’s the least of their worries. Giancarlo Stanton is on the IL with a hamstring strain and the pitching staff behind Gerrit Cole is faltering.
That is the lowest amount for baseball’s highest-paid player since Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Kevin Brown made $15.7 million in 2000. Players receive about 37% of their 2020 pay under the formula agreed to in March by MLB and the union, a figure the union wound up keeping during bitter negotiations that failed to produce an agreement.
