Kendrys Morales talked to me about his decision to retire after a 13-year MLB career: “It was a hard decision but everything in life must come to an end. I spent many years, starting in Cuba, playing baseball and lost a lot of time with my family. That's one of the reasons why I made the decision to retire, to make up for lost time. Baseball has also changed, and maybe veteran players like me are not valued, so it's the best time for this decision. It's the right decision for me and my family.”

New Dodgers RP Blake Treinen played with Mike Fiers, the whistleblower in the Astros' cheating scandal. He defended Fiers. "I respect him for what he said.
