Quote of the day
"I know Mitch Talbot really good, and that's not Mitch. I'd have a hard time believing he'd intentionally throw at anybody."
Rays manager Joe Maddon, on former Ray and current Indians RHP Mitch Talbot being ejected after hitting Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez with a pitch Saturday.
In a giving mood
INF Elliot Johnson praised RHP Jeff Niemann's generosity during his recent rehab stint with Triple-A Durham, saying the starter provided postgame meals for the Bulls all four days he was there. "Outback (Steakhouse)," Johnson said. "Different entrees every time, ribs, salmon, steak and chicken."
