Morning Report: Wyatt Mathisen is Hitting Great, But There’s Still Work...

Third baseman Wyatt Mathisen is having an amazing stretch at the plate lately for two reasons. The 21-year-old has at least two hits in each of the last eight games. Mathisen has 18 hits over that stretch in 32 at-bats. The thing that makes it more amazing, is that all 18 hits are singles. He’s […]
