Adolis García pummeled a two-run homer on Sunday night, powering the Rangers to a 6-4 victory over the Braves.

The 31-year-old superstar victimized Tyler Matzek in the eighth inning, crushing a first-pitch fastball for a 361-foot (99.8 mph EV) two-run blast that increased the Rangers’ lead to 6-3. It would wind up being the difference in the ballgame. García also doubled in the ballgame and was caught stealing, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been a five-category monster so far, slashing a robust .326/.368/.616 with six homers, 22 RBI and four stolen bases.


Yandy Díaz and Randy Arozarena hitless on Sunday.

Díaz and Arozarena went hitless on Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Yankees. They combined to go 0-for-9 with five strikeouts. Neither of Tampa's two key hitters has had a good start to the season.


Yordan Alvarez with one hit Sunday.

After going 3-for-5 on Saturday, Alvarez went 1-for-4 on Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Nationals. He also struck out once. This game pushes his season batting average to a solid .289, maintaining his status as a reliable source of hits and runs. His consistent contact and ability to get on base are underscored by a strong .386 wOBA, although his power numbers could see an uptick given his capability.


Andy Pagés hit his first major league homer and doubled Sunday in the rout of the Mets.

Pagés’ homer off Grant Hartwig was hit 413 feet to dead center. He’s 4-for-15 with three extra-base hits since his callup, though the 9/0 K/BB ratio is scary. Odds are that he’ll be sent down if Jason Heyward overcomes his back woes, but there’s considerable upside here, and he’s a good player to watch in the beginning of the year.


José Abreu was not in the lineup for Sunday’s tilt against the Nationals.

Abreu got a day off after a disastrous start to the 2024 season that has seen him hit just .068 with a .223 OPS. Yes, that last number is accurate. Jon Singleton handled first base.


Giants' Jorge Soler: Steps out of lineup

Soler was not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. It was the first day off of the season for Soler, who has gone 5-for-16 with a solo homer during a modest four-game hit streak.
