But while dancing around the situation, Rojas was still able to touch on what the signing could mean for the Mets.Boston Red Sox
Boone said then that Clint Frazier was projected as his starting left fielder after making great strides last year in his fourth season with the Yankees. Frazier, 26, hit .267 with eight homers and 26 RBIs in 131 at-bats during the pandemic-shortened season, after batting .267 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs over 225 at-bats in 2019.
With just about any other team, Gonsolin would not have to imagine starting this season in the minor leagues. He put up a 2.31 earned-run average in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, ranking seventh in the NL among pitchers who threw at least 40 innings.
In Kopech’s lone Spring Training appearance in 2020, six of his 11 pitches clocked in at over 100 MPH. This further proved that somehow, someway, the White Sox must employ such an x-factor on their pitching staff.Los Angeles Dodgers

The conditions in Boston, Seattle and New York City aren't anywhere close to that in Denver and Phoenix. The non-humidor balls weren't nearly as dry, etc. This is extreme, but depending on the location and how the balls are stored, putting them in a humidor could in fact increase the bounciness if the original ball trapped more water. Again, this isn't likely, but it's plausible. The bottom line is unless we can gauge the difference in the baseball with and without the humidor in those venues, it's not wise to make any adjustments.Atlanta Braves
