MLB London Series: 2020 Teams Will Reportedly Be……

By | Baseball

When Will Major League Baseball (MLB) Announce the Matchup for the 2020 MLB London Series? MLB London Series: 2020 Teams Will Reportedly Be……


Hello Everyone! Welcome to Sports Teller! Today, we will be going over the latest news on MLB London Series: 2020 Teams Will Reportedly Be…… Without further adieu, let’s begin!


MLB London Series: 2020 Teams Will Reportedly Be……

With the very first MLB London Series taking place a couple months from now, it appears that the league is narrowing down on which teams will travel to England in 2020.

The Associated Press and Chicago Tribune are reporting that the MLB is focusing on a divisional rivalry to take place in London. Those teams in the running are the following: Cubs vs. Cardinals and Nationals vs. Mets. The officials of the MLB London Series for 2020 discussions spoke with the Associated Press anonymously since those talks are not confirmed nor announced at the time of the report. The 2020 game would take place at the same venue as the 2019 edition-Olympic Stadium.

Based on those reports, those sources are likely leaning towards having the Cubs vs. Cardinals series become the main feature for MLB London Series 2020. The Cubs vs. Cardinals matchup would make perfect sense for the MLB in London since the 2019 edition showcases the Red Sox. Yankees rivalry. The England matchup is not the only international series to take place for MLB for 2020 as the league is looking at open the season in Japan and have games played in Puerto Rico and Mexico during the first half of the season.

Are Phillies Close to Acquiring J.T. Realmuto From Marlins? What is the Latest Involving Their Ongoing Trade Talks? What Would the Phillies Get in Return?


Hello Everyone! Welcome to Sports Teller! Today, we will be going over the latest news on Are Phillies Close to Acquiring J.T. Realmuto From Marlins? Without further adieu, let’s begin!


Are Phillies Close to Acquiring J.T. Realmuto From Marlins?

Update on J.T. Realmuto

The Miami Marlins traded C J.T. Realmuto to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for an international bonus slot, RHP Sixto Sanchez, C Jorge Alfaro, and LHP Will Stewart.

With less than a few days away from 2019 Spring Training, the Philadelphia Phillies could be on the verge of trading one of the best catchers on the trade block.

As of Wednesday, February 7, 2019

According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network and FanRag Sports, the Phillies are in the driver’s seat to acquire Catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Miami Marlins. Heyman also said that Phillies Catcher Jorge Alfaro and RHP Sixto Sanchez are likely to go to Miami in the proposed deal. Those sources are also saying that the Marlins are asking for additional players like the following: 3B Alec Bohm, OF Adam Haseley, OF Mickey Moniak, and RHP Adonis Media. However, the Phillies would not commit to include Haseley nor Bohm in the proposed deal. Fortunately, Heyman reported that SS Luis Garcia and RHP Spencer Howard could be traded to Miami as part of the J.T. Realmuto package.

With all these details said, there is a possibility that the J.T. Realmuto trade gets done sooner rather than later. As a matter of fact, the trade could be finalized as soon as Thursday. Realmuto is coming off a career year in 2018 as MLB named him to the All-Star Game and awarded him with a Silver Slugger.

Here’s More on J.T. Realmuto

J.T. Realmuto

  • 0.279 Batting Average, 59 Home Runs, 243 RBI’s in Career
  • 1-Time All-Star
  • Won Silver Slugger in 2018

Pace of Play Changes Coming to MLB for 2019 Season?

Pace of Play Changes Coming to MLB for 2019 Season? Major League Baseball is Currently Discussing Possible Pace of Play Rule Changes for 2019!


Hello Everyone! Welcome to Sports Teller! Today, we will be going over Pace of Play Changes Coming to MLB for 2019 Season? Before we can detail those possible changes, we must go over the recent pace of play changes that took place over the past couple years. Without further adieu, let’s begin!


Pace of Play Changes Coming to MLB for 2019 Season?

Let’s Recap the 2017-2018 Pace of Play Changes in MLB

In 2018, the MLB implemented the limit of mound visits per game. The league limits managers, players, and pitching coaches to six mound visits per nine innings and 1-2 visits in extra innings. In addition to the recent changes, the league altered the intentional walk (IBB) process. The IBB rule saved time from four pitches to a hand signal to the home plate umpire. Now, the big question for this topic is: Will there be more pace of play changes in store for MLB in 2019?

According to ESPN, the league and the players’ union discussed potential changes for 2019. Those proposed changes include a universal use of a DH in both leagues and a trade deadline before the All-Star Break. But what about the speeding up the Game Part of those discussions? For more information, please refer to the Pace of Play Changes Being Discussed in MLB for 2019 Season below!

Option #1 : 20-Second Pitch Clock to Improve Pace of Play

The MLB wants to implement the 20-second pitch clock as soon as the 2019 season. However, some players oppose to this proposed option since they would face the pressure to make executed pitches in a short time span. In fact, they would be penalized by the home plate umpire with charging a ball to the pitch count if they don’t throw a pitch in 20 seconds. This rule also applies to batters as they need to hurry up and tighten their gloves or bats. If a batter doesn’t meet the 20-second time limit, he would be charged with a strike in the count.

The bright side of this option is that Minor League Baseball implemented this change in 2015 and made the game quicker. According to San Francisco Gate (or SFGATE), the average time for a MiLB game in 2015 is two hours and 43 minutes. The 20-pitch clock made an MiLB contest approximately 12 minutes shorter than an average Major League Baseball game in 2015.

Option #2: Three-Batter Limit for Pitchers to Improve Pace of Play

The league is reportedly considering this idea for 2019 because, according to ESPN, scuffling bullpen pitchers are a contributing factor to games lasting 3-4 hours on average instead of the preferred three hours or less per game. Any pitcher, whether it is a starter or reliever, must face at least three hitters per appearance per game. This pace of play option would eliminate the possibility of a one-out save for closers. The exceptions to this would apply when a pitcher leaves the game with injury or finishes an inning. Unlike the 20-second pitch clock option, the union would prefer to have the three-batter limit installed for 2020 and not for the upcoming season.

San Francisco Giants to Announce 2019 Changes for AT&T Park

By | Baseball

San Francisco Giants to Announce 2019 Changes for AT&T Park! What Kind of Upgrades Will Giants Fans Notice When Entering the Ballpark on Opening Day 2019?


Hello Everyone! Welcome to Sports Teller! Today, we will be going over San Francisco Giants to Announce 2019 Changes for AT&T Park! Without further adieu, let’s begin!


San Francisco Giants to Announce 2019 Changes for AT&T Park

Multiple sources relating to San Francisco Chronicle and the MLB are reporting that the Giants will be making upgrades to their home ballpark, AT&T Park. The renovations would transpire in time for Opening Day 2019. The Giants have been playing at the waterfront park since they moved from Candlestick Park in the late 1990’s.

AT&T Park has been known for having strong fan turnouts due to playoff success and other events. In 2007, the waterfront park hosted the All-Star Game and was the sight were Barry Bonds broke Hank Aaron’s record for most career home runs. AT&T Park also hosted four World Series (2002, 2010, 2012, 2014), with the Giants winning the latter three.

Here are the Main Upgrades that Will Take place at AT&T Park for the 2019 MLB season:

New Centerfield Video Board

  • The old centerfield video board will be taken down and will be replaced by a new one that is about double the size of the previous one. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the new video board will be over 10,000 square feet and the project costs about $10 million. The Giants are one of the couple teams that received huge video board installations at their ballparks. In 2016, the Cleveland Indians (Progressive Field) installed a new video board above the left field bleachers that is double the size as its old one. In 2017, the Angels and Red Sox received new video boards as Anaheim got a huge one above the right field bleachers as well as a new smaller one at left field. Meanwhile, Fenway Park added a small video board just above the right field area of the stadium.

New Ballpark Name

  • Starting in 2019, the Giants’ waterfront Park will no longer be known as AT&T Park. According top the San Francisco Examiner, the cellphone company’s naming rights deal would expire after the 2019 season. However, they informed the team about opting out of the pact a year early if the organization can locate a swift partner on a new naming rights deal. Luckily, a computer technology firm called Oracle stepped forward and reached an agreement with the Giants. So, the ballpark will now be known as Oracle Park effective immediately. The Giants became the second team this offseason to sell new stadium naming rights. The Seattle Mariners changed their ballpark name to T-Mobile Park after Safeco (Safeco Field) decided not to renew the contract after 2018. Across the Bay Area, the Golden State Warriors’s arena name also carries the Oracle name (Oracle Arena).
