MLB Draft slot values: Here's how much money each pick is worth in 2021

  MLB Draft slot values: Here's how much money each pick is worth in 2021 With slot values from 2019 once again locked in for 2021, there are more changes coming than just the amount of rounds in the 2021 MLB Draft.The 2021 MLB Draft is, once again, a bit different from what we've seen in the past. While the 2020 draft was cut to just five rounds, this year, the draft is a bit more normal, with 20 rounds and 612 total selections for MLB teams to fill out their rosters with this weekend.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rowdy Tellez said he'd never received a curtain call before his two-homer performance Saturday night had a sellout crowd chanting his first name.

Then the Milwaukee Brewers slugger quickly corrected himself.

“I had one in the minor leagues, I think Double-A I had one,” Tellez said after the Brewers' 6-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. “But everything's better in the big leagues.”

Tellez went 3 of 4 with three RBIs and hit his first two homers as a Brewer since getting acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays on July 6. He delivered solo shots off José Ruiz in the sixth inning and Reynaldo López in the eighth.

Castellanos gets key hit as Reds beat Brewers 3-1

  Castellanos gets key hit as Reds beat Brewers 3-1 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Nick Castellanos hit a tiebreaking two-run single off All-Star closer Josh Hader with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Sunday. The Reds took three of four in the series to pull within four games of the NL Central-leading Brewers. The teams begin a three-game set in Cincinnati on Friday night. The Brewers (53-39) and Reds (48-42) are the only teams in the division with winning records at the All-Star break. Ryan Hendrix (5-1), the fourth of five Reds relievers, got two outs for the win. Josh Osich worked a perfect ninth for his first career save in his 246th appearance.

After going 2 for 13 in his first nine games with his new team, Tellez is 5 of 7 with three runs and five RBIs in this series. He has gone 7 of 13 against the White Sox this season.

“It’s good to see him swing the bat," Brewers pitcher Corbin Burnes said. “That’s a big man with a lot of power. He just touches the baseball and it goes a long way.”

Tyrone Taylor and Kolten Wong also went deep for Milwaukee in front of 41,686 spectators, the Brewers' largest crowd of the season. That crowd included a sizeable contingent of White Sox fans.

Burnes (6-4) struck out six and allowed four hits, two walks and one run over six innings to help the Brewers earn the 4,000th victory in franchise history. Their overall record of 4,000-4,289 includes their 1969 inaugural season as the Seattle Pilots.

MLB Draft tracker 2021: Live results, complete picks list for Rounds 1-20 in baseball draft

  MLB Draft tracker 2021: Live results, complete picks list for Rounds 1-20 in baseball draft Sporting News is tracking live results from the 2021 MLB Draft, including a full list of picks from Rounds 1-20.The COVID-19 pandemic reduced the 2020 draft to just five rounds from the standard 40. This year, the draft will move up to 20 rounds, plus compensation picks and two competitive balance rounds, allowing 612 amateur baseball players to be drafted by MLB clubs.

Chicago committed three errors, allowed a pair of unearned runs, issued a bases-loaded walk and had a run nullified when replays showed Yoán Moncada failed to touch home plate.

“We’ve had such outstanding support from our fans that drove from Chicago, but we’re disappointed that we haven’t played better and they’ve seen two losses,” White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Hopefully we can give them one tomorrow night.”

The White Sox trailed 4-0 through the first four innings and wasted a golden opportunity in the fifth. They had the bases loaded with nobody out when Leury García hit a roller up the third-base line to bring home Moncada.

But the run was taken off the board after replays showed Moncada never touched home plate. His right foot hit the dirt inches shy of the plate and then his left foot came down in the batter’s box.

“I really thought I stepped on home plate,” Moncada said through an interpreter. “It wasn’t until replay that I realized I hadn’t.”

Renfroe's slam leads 6 HRs as Red Sox rout Blue Jays 13-4

  Renfroe's slam leads 6 HRs as Red Sox rout Blue Jays 13-4 BUFFALO, N.Y. — Hunter Renfroe hit a grand slam, Kiké Hernández drove in three runs with two homers and the Boston Red Sox snapped a two-game losing streak with a 13-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night. Rookie Jarren Duran hit his first major league homer, Dylan Santana and Rafael Devers also went yard, and J.D. Martinez broke out of a slump with four hits as the Red Sox improved their AL-leading road record to 29-19. Red SoxRookie Jarren Duran hit his first major league homer, Dylan Santana and Rafael Devers also went yard, and J.D. Martinez broke out of a slump with four hits as the Red Sox improved their AL-leading road record to 29-19.

The call led to a discussion between La Russa and the umpiring crew, causing a lengthy delay that included a second replay review to confirm that an appeal could be made following a mound visit. The appeal happened after Brewers pitching coach Chris Hook went to the mound.

“Once Hooky left the mound, (Brewers manager Craig) Counsell yelled from the dugout, ‘Hey, he missed the plate, we’re going to step off and appeal here,' ” Burnes said. “I guess they knew all along he missed the plate. There was just so much craziness going on, it took a while for the phone to get answered. We all saw it. He missed the plate, clear as day.”

Burnes issued a bases-loaded walk to Zack Collins after play resumed to bring home Chicago’s first run, but he struck out pinch-hitter Jake Burger and retired Tim Anderson on a fly to right to end the inning.

Rodón (8-4) gave up leadoff homers to Wong and Taylor in each of the first two innings. He lasted a season-low four innings and allowed four runs, though only two were earned.

Milwaukee scored twice in a fourth-inning rally that featured a throwing error by Collins and a pair of walks, including one to Willy Adames with the bases loaded.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal offered an update on his recovery from a torn left knee ligament that has kept him from playing since July 5.

“We’re kind of following a schedule where I’m starting to catch,” Grandal said before the game. “I’m supposed to be starting to hit. I’m running. Now we’re going to get into stretching and mobility and stuff like that just because my last week and a half, two weeks, I haven’t been able to really stretch it out because they want to let it heal.”

UP NEXT

Lance Lynn (9-3, 1.94 ERA) pitches for Chicago and Brandon Woodruff (7-4, 2.04) starts for Milwaukee as the White Sox and Brewers conclude this three-game series Sunday night.

Pinch-hit HR by Tellez gives Brewers 4-2 win over Pirates .
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rowdy Tellez stayed calm long enough to deliver the kind of moment that produced bedlam from an adoring home crowd. Tellez connected on a three-run homer as a pinch-hitter to put the Milwaukee Brewers ahead for good in the seventh inning of a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday afternoon. “I think the hardest thing to do is remaining composed when you’re pinch-hitting, especially in a big situation like that,” Tellez said. A fan base that has warmed up to Tellez ever since he came over from Toronto in a July 6 trade chanted his first name before and after his homer. Tellez is batting .
