  1. Johnny Cueto resumes rehab assignment

    May 10, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Johnny Cueto resumed his minor-league rehab assignment after putting things on hold due to an oblique injury, throwing 50 pitches and three innings yesterday at Single-A. Cueto, who’s recovering from a strained lat muscle, allowed one run on four hits in three innings, walking zero and striking out four. C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati…

  2. Josh Hamilton finally gets the T.J. Simers treatment

    Josh Hamilton

    The moment Josh Hamilton signed with the Angels I began wondering when T.J. Simers would saunter up to him and do his usual antagonistic shtick. The answer: yesterday. And what’s Hamilton’s awful transgression for which Simers demands answers: he smiles. Uh-oh, we’ve got another smiler. This catches on and we won’t have any athletes around town who…

  3. Ryan Vogelsong will be surprised to learn his rotation spot is in jeopardy

    After his latest poor start last night reporters asked Ryan Vogelsong if he expected to make his next turn in the Giants’ rotation and he responded: “Why wouldn’t I?” They were asking because the 35-year-old has a 7.78 ERA in 39 innings and moments earlier in the same clubhouse manager Bruce Bochy was less than…

  4. Play of the night: Juan Lagares robs Andrew McCutchen

    Mentioned this in ATH, but it’s worth another look: here’s Juan Lagares robbing Andrew McCutchen of what might have been a homer in the ninth inning last night. Could have fallen short, in which case it would have been a double. Unless Angel Hernandez was umping, in which case it might have been a homer…

  5. Josh Johnson is out until at least June

    May 10, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    Josh Johnson is eligible to return from the disabled list Monday, but Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that he’s not expected to be back from a triceps injury until at least June. General manager Alex Anthopoulos laid out a recovery plan that includes Johnson starting his first minor-league rehab game on May 21, but added:…

  6. What technology is Major League Baseball using to review plays?

    UPDATE: Being told be several people that teams do not use the 2008 Sharp TVs for replay. That they have true HD screens of more modern vintage. This makes sense to me. It’d still be good if MLB was more upfront with it, however. 9:38 AM: Not sure what to make of this Deadspin post. It…

  7. Quote of the Day: The Blue Jays are playing “hard as crud”

    May 10, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Crud

    R.A. Dickey got a no-decision and the Blue Jays got the loss last night. Yet another loss in a season full of them so far. Dickey explains that it’s not about the lack of effort: “It’s just sad, because you pour your heart and soul into the game and it doesn’t always end up in…

  8. Dwight Gooden’s autobiography is coming out. Not surprisingly, it sounds like a grim read

    May 10, 2013, 8:53 AM EDT

    Gooden Strawberry

    Mike Puma previews Doc Gooden’s forthcoming autobiography. We all know the contours of the story: kid ace dominates one year, wins the World Series the next, then pisses away most of his promise on drugs before a nice little late comeback with the Yankees. But this promises to give us more details about it all:…

  9. Bo Porter wasn’t trying to pull a fast one. He actually didn’t know the rules. And neither did the umps.

    May 10, 2013, 8:19 AM EDT

    Bo Porter

    Still kinda amazed at that weird pitching change fiasco in the Astros-Angels game last night in which Bo Porter pulled his reliever for another before the first one ever faced a batter. When I first read about it I figured that Porter was trying to pull a fast one and call in a different pitcher…

  10. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 10, 2013, 6:45 AM EDT

    Luke Scott, Ryan Roberts

    Rays 5, Blue Jays 4: A battle of reigning Cy Young winners decided by a bases loaded walk to an Obama birther. Good times. I watched most of this one. Price and Dickey were OK, but not great. It was, like, the third straight home Rays game I’ve watched where Dick Vitale was noted in…

  11. Angels protest Astros’ illegal switch, win game anyway

    May 10, 2013, 12:54 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Houston Astros

    Here’s a new one: with the Angels batting with two on and two out in the seventh inning Thursday, the Astros went to bring in left-hander Wesley Wright to face left-hander J.B. Shuck. The Angels promptly countered with right-handed hitting Luis Jimenez. And then the Astros suddenly countered with right-hander Hector Ambriz. If that sounds…
