With an eye on 2018 and the tightly-contested pursuit of Japanese righthander Shohei Ohtani, the Mariners acquired Dee Gordon and $1 million in international bonus pool space from the Marlins Thursday afternoon in exchange for a trio of minor league prospects. With the trade, the Mariners now have $3,557,500 in international bonus pool money, which pushes them ahead of the Rangers ($3,535,000) for the most international bonus pool money in the Ohtani sweepstakes.
The Boras Foundation announced Wednesday the 32 teams competing in the 2018 Boras Baseball Classic of California, which matches 16 of elite high school teams from Northern California against 16 high-level teams from Southern California in order to name a de-facto state champion. Because of the size of the state, high school teams in California compete for sectional titles in the playoffs with no state championships.
JUPITER, Fla.—The son of a former minor league pitcher, Blaze Alexander has always had an affinity for at least two things when it came to sports—the game of baseball and a natural ability to throw hard. And up to this point, the long-lasting affections are paying major dividends for Blaze, a highly-touted 2018 shortstop from Bishop Verot HS in Fort Myers, Fla. who broke a Perfect Game National record with a 99 mph throw across the infield earlier this summer.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
