MLB All-Stars beat Yomiuri Giants in Japan
J.T. Realmuto and Amed Rosario drove in two runs each to lead the MLB All-Stars over the Yomiuri Giants 9-6 on Thursday in Tokyo. The game was a warm-up game ahead of their sixgame exhibition series against Japan’s national team.
After the game, Realmuto got to experience a Japanese baseball tradition when he was invited on the field to take part in the “hero interview” in front of the Tokyo Dome crowd. “This is awesome, we don’t do this in the United States so I’m really excited to be here with you guys,” Realmuto said.
Yankees: Catcher Gary Sanchez had surgery on his left shoulder, which could slow him during spring training but is not likely to keep him out of the lineup on Opening Day.
Dodgers: The team is confident shortstop Corey Seager will be ready for spring training after undergoing elbow ligament replacement surgery in April and a hip operation in August, Andrew Friedman, the team’s president of baseball operations, said at the general managers meetings.
