The Diamondbacks name Tony La Russa as Chief Baseball Officer. La Russa will report to Derrick Hall and oversee the entire baseball operations department.
GM Kevin Towers will be reporting directly to LaRussa. It remains to be seen if this was a move to restart the Diamondback franchise, after their terrible start this season. Kirk Gibson was already on the managerial hotseat, so this might be a bad sign for him. Towers recently said he was unsure of his future due to the bad start, and this doesn't look good for him, either.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
