Stanton: Frustration level ‘highest ever’ with Marlins in last place

Giancarlo Stanton is getting pretty sick of losing.

Though the slugger is off to a respectable individual start to the season, slashing .263/.339/.533 with 11 home runs in 40 games, the same can't be said of his Miami Marlins, who are already 11 games back in the NL East at 14-26.

Those 26 losses are contributing to a level of frustration Stanton's never experienced before.

"It's probably the highest ever," Stanton told the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer. "It's higher than me being the worst player on the field for a month, the worst player in the big leagues for a month, last year."

From May 15 to June 15 last season, Stanton endured one of the most miserable stretches of his career, slashing a paltry .120/.214/.240 and amassing 37 strikeouts in 75 at-bats during the span.

Another possible factor in Stanton’s frustration may be the ongoing saga behind the potential sale of the team, though that likely doesn’t compare to the Marlins finding themselves behind the injury-depleted New York Mets and the rebuilding Philadelphia Phillies in the division.

"Surprised? Yes," Stanton said. "No one expected it to be like this."

Sunken Place Steve Harvey’s Ex-Wife Suing Him For $60M

Steve Harvey‘s ex-wife—one of them—is demanding a massive bag for her alleged trouble. Mary Harvey is suing the comedian and Donald Trump delegate for a cool $ 60M. 

According to Mary, Steve’s second wife, the money is because he “damaged her soul.”

Reports TMZ:

Mary Harvey and Steve’s infamously bitter divorce was finalized back in 2005, but according to docs filed Wednesday … Mary’s still feeling a slew of ill-effects from their battle. She says she’s been suicidal and self-medicates to cope with their nasty breakup.

The suit is rambling at times, but Mary’s main point is she’s emotionally and physically destroyed after losing her son, her businesses, and the joy of Mother’s Days. As she puts it, “All was loss Mary L. Harvey was dead.”

She’s suing Steve for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Worth noting … the document was not filed by a lawyer, but rather a woman who tells us she is Mary’s “civil rights activist.”

Wait…what?

Don’t expect this to go very far unless Mary gets herself a proper lawyer.

Also, the fact they’re divorce was finalized a dozen years ago is not helping her cause.

Miss America Is Problematic

Sunday night was the archaic and totally unnecessary anymore Miss USA pageant where women dress in their best gowns and garbs and also answer questions about politics. The winner was the elegant, beautiful black chemist Kara McCullough from DC. So what’s the problem?

This.

She answered two questions, one saying that healthcare is a privilege and another saying that feminism isn’t really that great. Oh baby what is you doing? So naturally the tide turned on her very , very quickly. Maybe that crown can be the guiding light to help her out of the sunken place. Sigh. The slander was imminent.

Brewers place Braun on disabled list with calf strain

The Milwaukee Brewers have placed outfielder Ryan Braun on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left calf, the team announced Friday.

In a corresponding move, infielder Eric Sogard was called up from Triple-A.

Braun recently returned to the lineup after sitting out five games with an assortment of ailments. After admitting he had a variety of arm-related issues, he underwent an MRI on May 5 which came back clean.

The banged up 33-year-old's latest injury, though, was deemed serious enough for a stint on the DL.

It's unfortunate news for the Brewers, as Braun has been, as per usual, a steady contributor early this year, hitting .287/.374/.574 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs.

Mets place Cespedes on 10-day DL with hamstring strain

The New York Mets' infirmary just got a little more crowded.

The club placed Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list after he strained his hamstring Thursday against the Atlanta Braves, the team announced Friday.

Cespedes missed a series against the Washington Nationals earlier in the month with cramps in his left hamstring, but returned April 26 against the Braves, only to re-aggravate the injury running the bases after lacing a double. He was in obvious discomfort, and had to be helped off the field by trainers.

Although the club has gotten used to life without several members of the team as they recover from various ailments, Cespedes' absence presents a ton of problems for a Mets team struggling to generate offense.

In addition to the latest developments of Cespedes' injury, the club has been without Lucas Duda, David Wright, and Wilmer Flores. To make matters worse, Noah Syndergaard had his most recent start pushed back due to biceps tendinitis, and Steven Matz is yet to return from an elbow injury.

Cespedes entered Thursday's game hitting .270/.373/.619 with six home runs and 10 RBIs, with a team-leading 162 OPS+. He's in year one of a fresh four-year, $ 110-million deal signed in November.

Mariners place King Felix on DL with shoulder inflammation

Down goes the King.

The Seattle Mariners have placed Felix Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation, according to MLB.com’s Greg Johns.

Hernandez left Tuesday’s start against the Detroit Tigers with shoulder tightness after tossing just two innings. He allowed four earned runs on six hits and a pair of walks in the contest.

Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports the injury will cost the ace at least the next two to three weeks.

After an effective three starts to open the season where he allowed only six earned runs over 18 1/3 innings, Hernandez has struggled through two starts since, allowing eight runs in only 8 1/3 frames. He’s also given up six long balls, posting an uncharacteristically high 2.03 home runs per nine innings pitched.

The longtime face of the Mariners has been remarkably durable while handling a heavy workload throughout most of his career. He threw 200-plus innings in eight consecutive seasons from 2008-15 before making only 25 starts in 2016, missing all of June and most of July with a calf strain.

It is only the fourth time he’s ever been placed on the disabled list.

In corresponding moves, the Mariners called up pitchers Chase De Jong, Casey Fien, and Dillon Overton from Triple-A Tacoma. De Jong will take Hernandez’s spot Sunday against the Cleveland Indians, according to the Tacoma News Tribune’s Bob Dutton.

Tigers place Cabrera on 10-day DL with groin strain

The Detroit Tigers have placed first baseman Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain, the team announced Saturday.

Cabrera left Friday’s game against the Minnesota Twins in the seventh inning. According to MLB.com’s Jason Beck, Cabrera aggravated his groin on a Robbie Grossman single in the sixth inning.

The two-time American League MVP has remained healthy for the majority of his career, having played in over 150 games every season but two since his abbreviated rookie campaign in 2003. He suited up for just 119 contests in 2015 due to a calf injury, which was the last time he was placed on the DL.

The Tigers also recalled John Hicks from Triple-A. Hicks is penciled into Saturday afternoon's lineup as the starting first baseman, after hitting .424 over 10 games in the minors this season.

Cabrera, a career .320 hitter, was off to a slow start this year, posting a .268/.369/.464 slash line while striking out in 21.5 percent of his plate appearances. He hasn't struck out with a greater than 20 percent frequency since 2004.

It remains unclear how much time Cabrera will miss.
