Yasiel Puig was not in the Dodgers' lineup and was not sent to the DL eight days after tweaking his hamstring at Washington. The Dodgers are currently carrying eight relievers, meaning that a short bench is even shorter with Puig's limbo status.

As NYM look OFers, Brett Gardner an interesting option. .346 OBP in '16, signed thru '18, can play 3 OF spots. But NYM/NYY dynamic in play.

Athletics have only three choices with Rich Hill now not able to pitch on Sunday because of his blister: 1. Sell low (not happening with Beane in charge) 2. Trade for prospect and player to be named later with level of prospect based on how many starts he makes for assignee club or 3. Make 16.7m qualifying offer in off-season and hope he rejects it and get first round pick or if he accepts it ...hope he stays healthy enough to trade him at next year's trade deadline.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Rich Hill 18 GS '15-'16: 105 IP, 69 hits, 126Ks, 2.06 ERA, 201 ERA+. So yes, a legit candidate for $16.7m qualifying offer if not traded.

With the Cubs ahead 11-0, this just came up as an area of research in the pressbox: What is the minimum delay time before an umpire can call a game that has been delayed? According to Rule 4.03e, it's 30 minutes.
