Among the updates that I will post and comment on include “Notes of Interest” and “Top Five Notes.”
Here are the top five notes around MLB for August 13, 2020.
Charlie Blackmon is on fire (COL): through 18 games this season, the Rockies OF has 34 hits, the most in MLB history through 18 team games.
Mike Trout (LAA): Trout leads MLB with 7 HR and 1.309 OPS in August
Jeremy Jeffress (CHC): Since allowing a hit batter and walk in his first inning, Jeffress has retired all 18 batters in his six innings pitched.
Chicago Cubs 12-3 start is their best start since 1970 and tied for the second-best 15-game start in team history (started 13-2 in 1907)
Pittsburgh Pirates: 3-13 start matches the 1952 team for the worst start in team history.
