(CBS Los Angeles/CBS Local) — As the 2019 MLB season continues, the expectation is that teams and players will settle into their predicted roles. That has and hasn’t happened. A quick glance at the standings reveals a jumble that has yet to really sort itself out. The same goes for the league’s stat leaders, as players heal from injuries and shake off the off-season rust.
One familiar face returned to the mound on Monday. Los Angeles Dodgers ace, Clayton Kershaw, pitched his first major-league game of the season against the Cincinnati Reds, turning in seven solid innings of work. The Tampa Bay Rays are already off and running, however, piling up early-season wins against struggling teams. And Baltimore Orioles “slugger” Chris Davis finally managed to get a hit, and then another, and then another.
This week’s Baseball Report looks at Kershaw’s return, the Rays and Mariners’ hot starts, and the end of Davis’s hit-less streak.
