MLB News: Welcome to the Show Brad Goldberg

Congrats to Brad Goldberg on getting the call up to the Big Leagues by the Chicago White Sox. Goldberg figures to be in the mix as he has been very solid in AAA. With Sox pitching staff has been plagued by injuries  and when healthy Goldberg could get sent back down, but should eventually be a permanent fixture on the roster. Goldberg played for Team Israel in the Qualified and in Japan.

In other news - The Good is that Danny Valencia (9 straight hits) and Alex Bregman is crushing Home Runs. The Bad is that many MoTs are injured Ryan Braun, Ian Kinsler and Joc Pederson. Lets hope for some health this summer!
