Within the next few weeks -- or maybe even days -- Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre will collect his 3,000th career hit. On Monday, Beltre singled in the first inning against the Marlins (MIA @ TEX) and it was his 2,990th hit of his illustrious career. He later added another single, so he's up to 2,991. When Beltre does achieve the feat, he'll be the 31st player in MLB history to reach 3,000 hits. The most recent player to get there was Ichiro Suzuki, who did so last season.
Going back to last month -- even before the Cubs acquired lefty starter Jose Quintana -- the Cubs and Tigers were connected in rumors regarding Tigers catcher Alex Avila and starting pitcher Justin Verlander. Those rumors were resuscitated Monday by MLB Network's Jon Morosi:The Tigers have already moved J.D. Martinez, so they are presumably in sell mode. Of course, he was set to be a free agent after the season, so his situation is different than some others on the club.
The Padres and Royals announced a six-player trade on Monday, in which Kansas City adds three arms to their big-league pitching staff. The details:Royals get: RHP Trevor Cahill, RHP Brandon Maurer, LHP Ryan BuchterPadres get: LHP Travis Wood, LHP Matt Strahm, IF Esteury Ruiz, cash considerationsThe Royals are hot right now, having won five straight games, and are looking for one last deep playoff run before much of the nucleus hits free agency after the season.
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".
