MLB Did You Know

Here are three short, yet interesting facts that have occurred in the last couple weeks in MLB that caught my interest. I hope they do the same for you.

 

Kendrys+Morales2Kansas City Royals DH Kendrys Morales is, at the time of this article, #6 in the American League with 38 RBI. But Did you know that this time last year, Morales was still an unsigned free agent? He did not make his 2014 debut until June 9th with the Minnesota Twins.

But, did you know who the other player Detroit received in that trade was? His name is Alex Wilson and he has been a big part of their solid bullpen. Wilson was called up on April 22nd, and in his 1st 10 games, which encompassed 18 innings, Wilson was 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.67 WHIP.

 

Jimmy-Paredes2The Baltimore Orioles have had many injuries this season especially in their middle infield. Because of these injuries the Orioles have had to call up many players from their minor league system. One of the players they called up was Jimmy Paredes. Paredes is 26 years old and the Orioles are his 5th organization in his MLB career. The Orioles got him from the Kansas City Royals this past summer for cash considerations. But, did you know that Paredes was the American League Batting Champion for 1 day on Saturday May 23rd when he nudged out both Prince Fielder and Nelson Cruz with a .352 batting average?
