Tue, 28 Mar 2017 15:15:19 PDT

The Boston Red Sox are coming off a year in which they won their division and looked like a World Series contender, only to get swept out of the postseason. Pablo Sandoval is back and slimmer than we’ve seen him. The youth movement has fully arrived too — as Andrew Benintendi is expected to be their everyday left fielder and Mookie Betts is expected to play like an MVP for the next 10 years or so.

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 16:03:09 PDT

It’s time to win the World Series. When the Astros were in the midst of their rebuild in 2014, Sports Illustrated deemed them the future 2017 World Champions. A lot has happened since then: Carlos Correa arrived and is looking to take the next step toward superstardom.

''It's behind me now,'' Scherzer said. A stress fracture in the knuckle of the ring finger on his pitching hand slowed Scherzer and caused him to grip his fastball with the middle three fingers instead of the usual index and middle fingers.

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 15:58:50 PDT

An offseason that looked like it might drain some of the power of the mighty Toronto Blue Jays lineup ended being … not as bad as it could have been.
