    baby powder

    Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post talked to Adam LaRoche about the Nationals’ various clubhouse pranks and the first baseman revealed this beauty from Michael Morse: Last week, [Danny] Espinosa comes out of the bathroom, the stall, completely white.

    Wandy Rodriguez lasted just four innings against the Padres on Saturday, allowing five runs to give him a 5.65 ERA in his last 10 outings, and afterward Astros pitching coach Doug Brocail suggested that the left-hander is distracted by trade rumors. “We saw it last year when we were going through it and his name…

  3. Ubaldo Jimenez is still mostly terrible for the Indians

    Jul 20, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Ubaldo Jimenez

    Ubaldo Jimenez turns in just enough strong starts to make fans hope they may finally be getting the top-of-the-rotation starter the Indians thought they were trading for in the middle of last season, but instead he continues to be somewhere between “enigma” and “really bad pitcher.” After his latest clunker versus the Rays yesterday his…

    All it took for Travis Snider to get another chance in Toronto was a 10-player trade. Following their big swap with the Astros this morning the Blue Jays have recalled Snider from Triple-A, where he hit .335 with 13 homers, 16 doubles, and a 1.021 OPS in 56 games. It’s worth noting that Las Vegas…

    free stuff

    Imagine two families holding garage sales across the street from one another. Sunday afternoon rolls around and all the good stuff is long gone, most of the decent stuff is sold too, and only a few beat up, worn out, and largely undesirable items remain. Someone from the first family yells across the street to…

    Phillies prospect Tyson Gillies, who was arrested two years ago for cocaine possession before the charges were eventually dropped, has been suspended indefinitely by Double-A Reading.

    Jul 18, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer Getty

    When the Diamondbacks called up Trevor Bauer for his debut in late June there was plenty of opportunity for him to stick in the majors for good, but instead four starts later the 21-year-old top prospect is heading back to the minors. Bauer showed the raw stuff that has the potential to make him an…

  9. Zack Greinke to rejoin Brewers rotation Tuesday vs. Phillies after “recharging his batteries”

    Jul 18, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Earlier this week when the Brewers scratched Zack Greinke from his scheduled start today they insisted it was “recharging his batteries” and not because of a specific injury. Sure enough Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that Greinke will avoid the disabled list and return to the rotation Tuesday against the Phillies. That would have been…

    Jul 18, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    sam jackson

    Samuel L. Jackson tweeted out an amusingly quasi-obscene congratulations to Lucas Giolito after the Nationals’ first-round pick agreed to a $2.925 million deal just moments before last Friday’s signing deadline and it turns out the actor is a family friend. Giolito’s mom and dad are both actors and they live in California, so here’s what…

    Another day, another Rangers pitcher back from the disabled list.

    While pitching in the minors Juan Carlos Oviedo suffered a sprained elbow just before the conclusion of his eight-week suspension and now it sounds like the injury, and not false identity charges, will end his season before it even started. Oviedo was slated to rejoin the Marlins next week and may have even gotten some…

    Micah Owings

    Earlier this month Micah Owings sounded just about ready to give up pitching and focus on trying to make it back to the majors as a hitter, and now the decision has been made for him. Owings will undergo elbow surgery after spending the past three months on the disabled list with a forearm injury…

    Ryan Braun AP

    Ryan Braun left last night’s game after aggravating a lingering groin injury and as expected he’s not in the Brewers’ lineup for today’s game. Milwaukee has Thursday off, so this gives Braun some extra rest before potentially rejoining the lineup Friday in Cincinnati for what’s the start of 12 games in 12 days. Of course,…

    In the span of four season Scott Kazmir went from 24-year-old All-Star to being out of the big leagues and now pitching for the independent league Sugarland Skeeters. And as Sam Miller of Baseball Prospectus notes, Kazmir can’t even get those hitters out. Yesterday he lasted just one inning, coughing up six runs on six…

  21. Royals (finally) designate Jonathan Sanchez for assignment

    Jonathan Sanchez

    UPDATE: Mercifully, the Royals have designated Sanchez for assignment. ========== As if watching Melky Cabrera win All-Star game MVP while hitting .350 for the Giants wasn’t bad enough for Royals fans, now they’re being forced to watch Jonathan Sanchez implode every fifth game. Sanchez, who was acquired from the Giants for Cabrera this offseason, has…

    Jason Bay Getty

    Jason Bay is back from the disabled list, returning to the Mets’ active roster after missing the past month with a concussion.

Bay got off to a decent start this season, but then missed…

    Matt Joyce

    Tampa Bay’s struggling offense gets a boost tonight, as Matt Joyce returns from the disabled list after missing the past month with an oblique injury.
