Contacted by ESPN's Outside the Lines about the White Sox' plans to extend netting to the foul poles at Guaranteed Rate Field, Chicago native Erwin Goldbloom said, "Go Sox! I hope it's a start — somebody had to do it and I hope now the rest of teams will follow." Goldbloom's wife Linda died in August after a foul ball into the loge, above netting behind home plate, struck her in the head at Dodger Stadium. His daughter Jana Brody said Tuesday, "I'm thrilled they are taking action...the only other thing I want is to raise it behind the backstop, but I'll take it."

The Dodgers approached OF Joc Pederson about learning 1B when AJ Pollock went down. Now, Dave Roberts said, they're "ramping it up." Against righties, it can be a way to put Pollock, Pederson, Alex Verdugo and Max Muncy, who has been more adept at 2B, in the same lineup. Roberts said Pederson is "more excited about playing first base than I've seen him excited about anything, outside of hitting a homer."
