Marketplace Roundup

MLB.com's Adam McCalvy notes Brewers RF Christian Yelich is on the "cover of 'RBI Baseball 20' wearing the new logo unveiled by the Brewers just this week." On the cover, Yelich "wears one of the team's new cream-colored home uniforms with block lettering and accents reminiscent" of what the team wore in '70. Yelich is the "first player in franchise history to be featured on the cover of an MLB-licensed video game," and the "sixth player to appear on the cover of the game since MLB relaunched the brand in '14." There was "no cover athlete that year" (MLB.com, 11/20).

WATCH THE THRONE: CNBC.com's Jabari Young noted Rockets F P.J. Tucker is "close to signing his next endorsement deal" since his shoe contract with Nike expired Oct. 1. Tucker has "been with Nike throughout his career and has been in negotiations with the company since his deal ended." Tucker also "received interest from Puma, Adidas and New Balance." Part of the "intrigue of signing Tucker" is his "massive shoe collection, labeling Tucker the 'Sneaker King'" (CNBC.com, 11/19).
