Even if the Red Sox start facing penalties again, they're not as onerous as the owners would have us believe -- potentially a few million dollars out of pocket, a loss of some international bonus money, maybe a 10-spot drop in the draft.Chicago Cubs
The roof should be open tonight in Marlins Park, and there is a 7- to 10-mph breeze blowing out to left field, with game-time temperatures coming in around 80 degrees. This is a phenomenal matchup for Corey Dickerson, Jesus Aguilar and Adam Duvall, as Harvey’s offerings do not miss many bats these days.

Why does any of this matter now? Well, it seems that the league is still interested in implementing those rules next season, which means that teams have an extra chance to get potential two-way players to those thresholds. There aren’t that many options (Ohtani is so special and exciting for a reason) and we didn’t see teams try to gamify that when the rule was first introduced in 2019. But I do wonder whether, with a little more lead time to consider the impact, teams might get creative with their potential two-way players toward the end of the season if the thresholds are within reach. Or maybe that’s wishful thinking that we have some funkiness to look forward to. — Hannah KeyserColorado Rockies
