Cardinals to face Cubs in London next season

Published

on

The MLB is heading back to the U.K. in 2020.

The league announced that the St. Louis Cardinals will host the Chicago Cubs in a two-game series at West Ham’s Olympic Stadium in London, England in 2020.

“I’ve had experience traveling over there and the time difference is pretty dramatic, especially when you go that way,” said Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

“When you come back, you’re always able to catch up, when you’re going back in time as opposed to forward in time. I don’t even know what to expect in something like that. You know your head’s going to be swimming a little bit, you’ve got that brain fog, you just do.”

The games will take place on June 13 and 14, 2020.

Twins slugger Nelson Cruz listed as day to day with left wrist strain

Couldn’t have picked a worse time for this to happen.

Narrowly holding onto a 1 game lead in the AL Central, the Minnesota Twins have found out that they might be without their best hitter for a period of time.

The team confirmed Friday that they have listed DH Nelson Cruz as day-to-day after the All-Star slugger strained his left wrist on Thursday night.

Cruz sustained the injury when he swung and missed on a 2-1 fastball by Mike Clevinger in the fourth inning of the team’s 7-5 loss to the Cleveland Indians. After he grimaced in pain at the batters box, coaches and training staff came to check on him and then removed him from the game immediately after.

The 39-year old is putting up big numbers in his first season with the Twins, posting a .294 batting average, 1.035 OPS, 32 homers and 76 RBI in 87 games.

Losing Cruz for a significant time could potentially cost them their number 1 spot in the standing by seasons end.
