Trevor Bauer immersed himself into a budding rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres with one eye closed. The Dodgers’ prized offseason attainment navigated through his first inning versus the Padres on Saturday afternoon by pitching mostly with his right eye closed, a training method he said he uses frequently as a means to make himself uncomfortable. “I figured if they can’t score off me with one eye open, it’s gonna be difficult to score off me with two eyes open,” Bauer stated after throwing three scoreless innings from the Dodgers’ facility. “Just having a little bit of fun.” Bauer didn’t […]

Orioles put Dwight Smith Jr. on IL; John Means Iffy for Opening Day start

The Baltimore Orioles placed outfielder Dwight Smith Jr. on the 10-day injured list Monday, and manager Brandon Hyde isn’t sure if left-hander John Means will be able to start the opener at Boston on Friday night. Smith recently returned to the team after testing positive for COVID-19 and still needs time to get into baseball shape. Hyde said the Orioles have the option of activating Smith “at any time” and that he could still be on the opening day roster. But at this point, Smith is still trying to work his way back. “He just hasn’t participated in a full-squad workout,” Hyde said. Means developed a […]
