Josh Naylor– 1B, Double-A, San Antonio Missions 3-5, 2 2B, 3 RBI, 1 R In a lot of ways, first baseman Josh Naylor is a prototypical first baseman without being a prototypical first baseman.

This break for Coleman came on the heels of an 0-3 night at the plate on Wednesday, during an 8-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. I first became aware of Coleman during spring training.

Friday’s Game is a Must-Win for the Tijuana Xolos

It’s been a tough start to the 2017 Apertura tournament for the Tijuana Xolos. After an off-season of high-profile transfers (specially from South America) and a new coach introduced, a lot of fans and media members were hoping for a successful tournament.
