Another weird week in a season full of them. Injuries galore, a rainout, and a seven-inning doubleheader have highlighted this week, and the Yankees at least escaped the twin bill yesterday with a split. They’re limping a bit right now, but they should get Giancarlo Stanton back tonight, and they have an enticing three-game set with the Tigers coming up that should offer the opportunity to win a series.
On the site, Peter lays out a plan to get Luke Voit back to peak production once he returns from injury. Tom also analyzes Jameson Taillon’s curveball and how the pitch could help the right-hander unlock his potential, Matt gives us the preview for the upcoming series in Detroit, and Ryan delivers the mailbag answers for this week.

1. If both players were out for the same amount of time, which would be the more impactful loss, Luke Voit or Corey Kluber?
2. If MLB did away with the runner-on-second rule, would you be OK with games ending in ties?
