Thanks to MVP Mike Trout and a host of other young stars, the American League won Tuesday’s All-Star Game. Cincinnati’s Todd Frazier won the Home Run Derby in his home park. Read more about those “things,” and more, in my latest MLB recap for CBS Local.
Three star pitchers who had different injuries make their season debut on Thursday. Steven Matz of the Mets made his major league debut earlier in the week, and a Cleveland pitcher came within one strike of a no-hitter. Hitters get their share of attention in my latest MLB recap, too — Prince Fielder hit a milestone homer this week and MLB announced changes to the Home Run Derby.
