Thumbs up

George Brett, Royals: There's no guarantee he'll make an impact as the Royals' new interim hitting coach, but just having Hall of Famer Brett back is great for baseball.

Thumbs down

Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins: The Marlins star, sidelined since blowing out his right hamstring on April 29, had to back off his rehab because of knee pain, saddening both Marlins fans and fantasy players.

Ex-Mariner of the week

Pedro Grifol, Royals: Brett's hiring received the focus, but the Royals also elevated Grifol, the former M's farm director, to the major-league staff as a special-assignment coach. He'll help Brett work with hitters.

Quote

"What are you asking me to do? Take my belt off and spank them? Yell at them? Scream at them?" — Royals manager Ned Yost, on criticism that he wasn't holding his struggling team accountable.
