When Daniel Murphy was placed on the DL with a right calf injury, not many predicted that 20 year old Dilson Herrera, playing in AA just a few days ago, would be the starting 2nd baseman of the New York Mets this past weekend. Even his own manager admitted that he knew very little about Murphy’s replacement. When Terry Collins was asked what he knew about his newest player, he replied with a smirk, “not much.”

Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had a great rookie season last year and that might be an understatement.

The Cuban athlete was selected for the National League All-Star team, won the NL Rookie of the Year Award, and struck out almost 200 hitters, but this season hasn’t gone as planned for the 22 year-old.

Fernandez suffered an arm injury in early May that needed Tommy John surgery, and he won’t pitch again until next season.

But most Met fans have been able to forget about the struggles and disappointments from their once promising prospect Davis. That’s because the Mets put their faith in another big power lefty, and he’s finally starting to show why.

Minneapolis, Minn.- The American League defeated the National League 5-3 in the 85th MLB All Star Game on Tuesday in Minnesota. However, Derek Jeter, playing in his 14th and final Midsummer Classic, was the real headline of the event as was expected. The expectations didn't necessarily include a 2 for 2 performance at the plate with a near incredible play up the middle though. But on a cool night in the Twin Cities that's exactly what the Yankees captain delivered.
