Pablo Sandoval was designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox on July 14. With three more years remaining on a 5-year, $95 million contract, it shouldn’t be surprising he cleared waivers without being claimed by another MLB team. That’s where the San Francisco Giants come in, according to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez. Per his report, Sandoval will be coming back to the Giants on a minor-league contract. He’ll report to Triple-A Sacramento.
It’s been the formula for the San Francisco Giants over the last seven years, the franchise’s most successful span by far. And for two games in a row at least, it’s been working in the second half of an otherwise dreadful 2017 campaign. So, of course it was Buster Posey playing the pivotal role in the team’s 5-4 win against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday. Matt Cain made his first start days after being demoted to the bullpen and like many of his outings at home this season, it wasn’t bad.
OAKLAND — The Oakland Athletics intended to provide their fans with a treat on Tuesday. Before the game, the team served up root beer floats and headed into the top of the ninth, the team had played well enough to be in line for a win. Then, Santiago Casilla entered the game and things weren’t as sweet for the home team, which eventually lost 4-3 to the Tampa Bay Rays. Nursing a one-run lead, the A’s closer quickly logged the first two outs.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
