Greetings, friends. We’re back for another baseball season. More importantly, we have a fun new series this year.

Welcome to the Daily Opener.

Every morning, I’ll be with you to recap the previous day of baseball and talk about what stood out to me. We’ll find fun stats. We’ll lament some injuries. We’ll take a peek at the day ahead. And we’ll have a few laughs.

Have questions or just want to talk baseball? Feel free to reach out on Twitter @mikeMaher with questions or feedback anytime.

Rub Some Dirt On It (Injuries)

  • MLW: Freddy Peralta (shoulder) heading to 15-day IL Manager Craig Counsell told media that Peralta would miss a “significant” amount of time with his right shoulder injury. Peralta was placed on the 15-day IL on Monday after exiting his start on Sunday.
  • COL: Kris Bryant (back) to be re-evaluated Tuesday
  • SDP: Fernando Tatis Jr. underwent imaging on his fractured left wrist on Monday. If they come back clean, he could begin swinging immediately and allow the Padres to set a timetable for his return.
  • SDP: Mike Clevinger was placed on the 15-day IL on Sunday with a right triceps strain. He had made just three starts this season after working his way back from 2020 Tommy John surgery.
