Carlos Jr. was born two years later, and he began helping his father on job sites when he was just 8. So as the rest of us shake our head in amazement at what this 20-year-old young man is doing on the Major League stage this summer -- three years after the Astros made him the No.

    Jul 7, 2015 | MSNBC

    Twins 4, Orioles 2 : Brian Dozier wasn't selected for the All-Star team because the format we have no encourages managers to treat it like some cross between Little League in which everyone must be represented and some form of awful FutureBall in which every team has 20 or so relievers hanging around because people, the theory goes, would rather see relievers instead of genuine ballplayers who do things like slug .500 in the first half. Well, he showed them by hitting a two-run walkoff homer in the 10th.

The Tigers claimed first baseman and left fielder Marc Krauss off the waiver wire today, after the Tampa Bay Rays placed him there on July 4.
