Monday morning links.

Jesse Katz of L.A. Magazine published a story on Yasiel Puig's escape from Cuba which has been making waves across the Internet today. There are lots of similarities to Susan Slusser and Demian Bulwa's story published last July on Yoenis Cespedes.

Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko has agreed to a six-year extension.

Brett Anderson is making yet another trip to the disabled list.

According to Carson Cistulli, the A's have one of the worst camera angles in the entire league.

Should fielders drop the ball on purpose? Looking at recent plays, including two from this weekend's series in Seattle, this may be a logical move.

Jeff Sullivan presents the weakest home runs hit since 2006.

This week's matchups include Felix Hernandez squaring off with Yu Darvish.

Today's minor league games include Drew Granier on the hill for the RockHounds. The River Cats do not play tonight after sweeping Salt Lake over the weekend.

On this day a year ago, Anibal Sanchez and the Tigers walloped the A's, as Jarrod Parker's April struggles continued.

Tonight's starting lineup features lots of right-handed bats against Hector Santiago. Craig Gentry will make his first start tonight.
