The 2018 draft class is advancing much faster than anyone anticipated. Two new additions to the active roster for tonight’s game:

Strangely, it doesn’t appear that either new addition will be making his major league debut tonight.
In other news, Avisaíl García has been activated off of the disabled list and starts in right field tonight, batting fifth. He was the hottest White Sox hitter prior to that balky hammy crying out again, so let’s hope his power stroke remains as Chicago tries to even the series.
Yo-Yo is back atop the order against Felix Hernandez, dig it. Dylan Covey longs for Junes of yesterday, as he tries to erase his flatulent end to the first half and start anew in the second.
On the Seattle Mariners side, King Felix comes off the disabled list and starts tonight.
Buster Olney tweeted out a preposterous stat today: The Mariners have a zero run differential in 2018 — scored as many runs as they’ve allowed, in other words — yet sit 20 games over .500. Scott Servais has got mWAR oozing out of his ears so far this season.
